The first movie to be based on a Richard Matheson book, The Incredible Shrinking Man was one of the biggest sci-fi hits of the fifties and remains one of the most interesting and most serious takes on the subject matter.
If you’re looking for a “review” in the traditional sense, then let me just say I love this movie. This video, however, is a “review” in the literal sense (using the Miriam-Webster definition “a retrospective view or survey”), in that I’m going over the history of the film and its place in sci-fi cinema history.
