The Incredible Shrinking Man

The Incredible Shrinking Man is a 1957 science fiction film based on a book by Richard Matheson, who also wrote I am Legend.


1000 Misspent Hours says, "the special effects in this film are extraordinary....But most impressive of all is the forced-perspective trickery, which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen equaled." Moria calls this movie "one of the real Golden Age classics" and says it "has a greatness and stature that stands it head and shoulders above (or perhaps considering the theme below) the others" of the "miniature-sized adventure films".
