Earns its ponderous tone, and the final moments are as fitting as they are unexpected.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Notable for its relatively intelligent script, for some imaginatively amusing special effects, and for an existential streak which finally has our (tiny) hero pondering the meaning of existence.

Surprisingly provocative 50's sci-fi that goes beyond the thrilling spider battle

A moving, strangely pantheist assertion of what it really means to be alive. A pulp masterpiece.

Unless a viewer is addicted to freakish ironies, the unlikely spectacle of Mr. Williams losing an inch of height each week will become tiresome before Universal has emptied its lab of science-fiction clichés.

One of the landmark sci-fi efforts of the 1950s

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

One of the best s-f flicks of the 1950s. A tragic story that is exciting and touching.

| Original Score: 4/5

June 26, 2003


Sparse direction allows the tension to build naturally so that the terror and poignancy of the story work their way into the audience's brain without being forced. A total classic.

The surreal intensity of outsize objects that loom as the hero shrinks is handled effectively, and the mystical happy ending is a better payoff than one would expect of the genre.

The special effects and trick photography are cleverly done (for its time). Also, the story is intelligently handled.
