INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN, THE
In 1957 Jack Arnold, director of seminal sci-fi horror classics Creature From The Black Lagoon and It Came From Outer Space collaborated with celebrated author Richard Matheson (I Am Legend) on one of the most groundbreaking movies of the era. A classic tale of science-gone-wrong in an atomic age, The Incredible Shrinking Man is considered to be one of the most innovative and imaginative creations put to film.
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 and he shrinks to mere centimeters in height. When ordinary household situations loom over him with lethal intensity, it is an instant battle for survival as a playful cat becomes a lethal predator and a spider is a gargantuan monster. Pushed to the limits by his deadly surrounds, Carey must rely on his wits to overcome adversity in his new oversized world and discover a way to return himself to his original stature.
Influencing myriad films such as Fantastic Voyage and TV's Land of The Giants, The Incredible Shrinking Man reflects a stark era of fear and uncertainty about the power of nuclear energy and the future of the human race.
