Tarantula! (1955), 80 minutes

TARANTULAAmbitious Professor Gerald Deemer (Leo G. Carroll, North By Northwest) has developed an astonishing new project: a special growth formula. Testing the formula on his innocent lab tarantula in Arizona he expects nothing more than it to double in size. But when it somehow escapes into the desert, it grows to gargantuan size and threatens to destroy everything and everyone in its path. Also featuring John Agar (Star in the Dust) and Mara Corday (Man Without a Star) TARANTULA is a cracking example of 50s sci-fi horror paranoia in the glorious tradition of The Blob and THEM!

Director: Jack Arnold
Cast: John Agar, Mara Corday, Leo G. Carroll

The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), 81 minutes

When Scott Carey (Grant Williams, Hawaiian Eye) encounters a mysterious radioactive mist on a boating trip, he soon finds his life taking on a bizarre and frightening twist. His physical size begins to diminish and he shrinks to mere centimeters in height. When ordinary household situations loom over him with lethal intensity, it is an instant battle for survival as a playful cat becomes a lethal predator and a spider is a gargantuan monster. Pushed to the limits by his deadly surroundings, Carey must rely on his wits to overcome adversity in his new oversized world and discover a way to return himself to his original stature.

Influencing myriad films such as Fantastic Voyage and TV’s Land of The Giants, The Incredible Shrinking Man reflects a stark era of fear and uncertainty about the power of nuclear energy and the future of the human race. him.

Director: Jack Arnold
Cast: Grant Williams, Randy Stuart, April Kent, Paul Langton, Raymond Bailey
