The Incredible Shrinking Man

  • Dir: Jack Arnold

  • USA, 1957, English, 81mins, DCP

  • Cast: Grant Williams, Randy Stuart, April Kent

Adapted by celebrated author Richard Matheson (I Am Legend) from his own novel, Jack Arnold's film remains one of the most successful science fiction adventures of the 1950s, enduring as both a showcase for pioneering special effects, and a classic example of atomic age paranoia. Grant Williams stars as the eponymous hero, who is exposed to a strange mist while on a fishing trip, which slowly causes him to shrink. As he continues to reduce in size, he must soon fend for himself against colossal threats from everyday objects in his own house including ordinary cats and terrifying spider, while grappling with his own diminishing place in the world.
