    The Incredible Shrinking Man


    All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero.

    The dream pairing of Jack Arnold and Richard Matheson brings unusual poignancy to what could have been standard 50s B movie fodder. 

    Made three years after Arnold’s other masterpiece, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, this really is a high watermark for mid century sci-fi. Equal parts melodrama, monster movie and metaphysics.

    Tough break getting dosed with massive levels of insecticide and radiation in the same month though.

    *All the animals were hurt during the making of this film. 

    Genuinely deranged slice of the “animals on the attack” subgenre that flourished in the late 70s/80s. 

    The animals in Frankfurt zoo get dosed with prodigious amounts of PCP and go on a kill rampage. Too many WTF moments to fully list, but does include:

    Polar bear in children’s ballet class. 
    Cheetah chasing a VW beetle. 
    Rats vs flamethrowers. 
    Elephants crashing a 747. 

    Highly recommended. Obviously.
