X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes

X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes is a 1963 science fiction/horror film directed by Roger Corman and starring Ray Milland, John Hoyt (When Worlds Collide, Lost Continent, Julius Caesar, Spartacus, a Star Trek connection from the original pilot) and Don Rickles. io9 reports a re-make is in development.

1000 Misspent Hours says
it demonstrates not only that Corman had some real talent as a director, but that he was able to take the things he was learning on the sets of the relatively big-budget, Poe-inspired gothics he was then making and apply them to projects of a very different sort.
BBC says it "bears comparison with the best films of the era". Stomp Tokyo has a lengthy plot description with screen shots and says it "has long stood as a gem in Corman's crown, and with good reason". Ferdy on Films has a review saying, "It is a surprisingly compelling, even moving picture. It might even be the best Corman ever made."
