Product Description

Featuring groundbreaking special effects, The Incredible Shrinking Man is considered one of the most innovative and thought-provoking films ever made. When Scott Carey (Grant Williams) encounters a mysterious radioactive mist on a boating trip, he soon finds his life taking on a bizarre and frightening twist. His physical size begins to diminish as he shrinks to a mere two inches. Suddenly, ordinary household situations loom over him with lethal intensity, a playful cat becomes a demon and a spider is a gargantuan monster. Carey finds he must rely on his wits to survive in his new oversized world in this sci-fi classic that remains as terrifying today as it did over 50 years ago!

Format: DVD
"Incredible Shrinking Man" reminds me of a great episode of "The
Twilight Zone". It's thoughtful, well-written, and ultimately pretty
daring in its conclusions. Richard Matheson, who wrote many of the
best Twilight Zones, wrote the script.

Hokey at moments, with a few special efx that are pretty badly dated,
it's still tense, inventive and emotional, with good twists and turns,

It's also ultimately very thought-provoking, and raises some interesting
(and vaguely Buddhist) ideas about the meaninglessness of size in the
vastness of the universe.

This film could be the poster child for what's now called by Hollywood a 'smart genre film' i.e.
it can be advertised as a genre movie (horror, action, sci-fi, etc.) but transcends the
limitations usually associated with that genre to become a special, well-made film that can
speak to a grown-up audience beyond those simply looking for a cheap thrill.

Given it's cult status, and strong critical support, It's bizarre that this film hasn't gotten
better treatment, only now arriving on stand alone DVD

The Incredible Shrinking Man is one of my top all time favourite films from the 1950s. Along with Invasion of The Body Snatchers, this 'B' movie, directed by Jack Arnold from the novel by Richard Matheson. Poignant scary and effective.

Un classique de SF de qualité des années 50 trop longtemps laissé aux oubliettes. Inspiré d'un court roman de R. Matheson, ce film est une réussite pour l'époque tant sur la qualité de l'image, les trucages, le sujet et la réflexion.

This movie is used as part of many documentaries. Now is a chance to see it in context. I may prove to be depressing on many levels.

"The strange almost unbelievable story of Robert Scott Carey began on a very ordinary summer day." As told by Robert Scott Carey.

While on vacation Scott Carey (Grant Williams) encounters a mysterious glowing cloud. Toss in a little DDT. And you have an environmental disaster. At least for Scott. Great Scot what is going to happen to him? We watch as Scott gets small minded.

There are a few scenes where Scott is translucent. 50's version of film trickery before CGI.

My cats watch the TV and look at me. They sit on my chest and smack their lips. I wonder what they are thinking.

My only solace is "so close the infinitesimal and the infinite but really the two ends of the same concept." To God there is no "Zero."

One of my favourite Sci-Fi movies, with excellent special effects and giant props. Very good sequences with the spider vs tiny man toward the end of the story. Pretty strange opening, but they carry it off with the realistic human reactions to such inexplicable happenings. Believable performances from the wife and husband characters.
