Classic Monsters is now delighted to bring you one of our world famous Ultimate Guides to it, paying tribute to this groundbreaking cinematic masterpiece.
Starring Grant Williams, Randy Stuart, and Orangey the cat in his most terrifying role, this milestone of the silver screen is regarded by both fans and critics as one of the most important and significant entries into the sci-fi stable. Its stunning special effects are still breathtaking to behold, and the performances of the two leads -- not to mention their feline co-star -- are as timeless as the movie itself.
Written by celebrated author Richard Matheson and directed by Jack Arnold, The Incredible Shrinking Man tells the powerful and unredemptive story of Scott Carey, whose life descends into despair and loneliness following his exposure to a strange mist while on board his brother's boat off the California coast. For dyed-in-the-wool fans of the movie, or those who have yet to discover its magic for the first time, this collector's item Ultimate Guide is the perfect accompaniment to enhance a viewing of it and is a must for all aficionados.
