    This film is great! It's my #1 discovery this Halloween season. For the 1950's, the film has great special effects. A man begins to shrink due to being exposed to radiation and has to face challenges and obstacles to survive including being terrorized by a cat and a fight to the death with a tarantula. It also has an interesting ending which I was impressed with. This film is top of the class science fiction with minor horror elements. A whole-hearted recomendation. 7 years 9 months ago
