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. At six inches tall he can only live in a doll's house and even that becomes impossible when his cat brea ... (more)

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" If there's one thing that can strike fear into the very core of any man, it's the idea that a part of his body is shrinking. The only thing worse would be that every part of his body is shrinking. And the only thing worse than that would be that every part of his shrunken body was on the menu of a house spider in the basement that he had to run down to in order to hide from the cat after it made the attempt at making him its din-din. It's a pretty common fear amongst men, actually. I think "

"After passing through a mysterious cloud on the ocean, Scott Carey discovers that his clothes seem to start feeling looser. More time passes and he discovers that he is now shorter than his wife. Day after day, he becomes smaller and smaller until he becomes so small that an ordinary housecat becomes a terrifying threat to his very life. A sci-fi masterpiece from the late 50's with numerous unforgettable scenes including a rousing showdown with a giant cat and a common house spider. Great perf"

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"There are B sci-fi films, and then thereโ€™s The Incredible Shrinking Man. Its premise, in which a 1950s average Joe is exposed to radiation that causes him to shrink, might suggest that the film is one of those assembly-line escapist yarns that studios were pumping out at the time. And yet director Jack Arnold and writer Richard Matheson display an intelligent artistry that takes the visual, narrative, and philosophical implications of the material to its thrilling and though-provoking fullest "

"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."

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"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. But these little B-Movies, usually no longer than 80 minutes in length, are crammed with so much invention, intelligence and excitement that only the laziest of viewers would write them off based on some o"
