The Incredible Shrinking Man

A remarkably suspenseful science fiction spectacle about a man out in a sailboat, who sails into a mysterious mist and soon notices that he's shrinking! He eventually gets so small that he must escape the wrath of a house cat, he must battle a monstrous spider for a bread crumb and survive the incredible flood of the leaky basement. The special effects are grand, especially for 1957! The story is reminiscent of a cheesy, low-budget monster flicks that there are so many of, but this one exhibits intelligence. Remade as The Incredible Shrinking Woman with Lily Tomlin and Charles Grodin in 1981.
