Description: Scott Carey and his wife Louise are sunning themselves on their cabin cruiser, the small craft adrift on a calm sea. While his wife is below deck, a low mist passes over him. Scott, lying in the sun, is sprinkled with glittery particles that quickly evaporate. Later he is accidentally sprayed with an insecticide while driving and, in the next few days, he finds that he has begun to shrink. First just a few inches, so that his clothes no longer fit, then a little more. Soon he is only three feet tall, and a national curiosity.

"Classic 1950's paranoid sci-fi in which a man, while holidaying on a boat, sails through a mist and soon discovers that he is shrinking, having to face the attention of the press as well as dangers from creatures he thought he would never have to face. Jack Arnold's film is still regarded as a classic of the genre, even though it may be dated now. Surprised no one has ever remade it."

"The Sci-Fi boom of the 1950s is often looked back on with a smirk and a shrug. In the context of the huge, complex beast that Sci-Fi cinema has become, these early classics of the genre are generally considered a bit camp, their special effects dated and their chin-stroking dialogue laughable.

"20.02. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Jack Arnold "Easy enough to talk of soul and spirit and existential worth, but not when you're three feet tall." "

Movie Reviews (1351-1400) (50 movies items)

" Engaging story with strong action and direction about a man shrinking. Superior in it's genre for a decade where science fiction drowned in monster and alien invasion movies. The effects also holds up pretty well. Only it's ending may feel too abrupt and maybe a little too philosophical and religious for today's audience. "
