The Incredible Shrinking Man movie scene

Grant Williams gets small--really small--in The Incredible Shrinking Man.

The classic 1957 science-fiction thriller The Incredible Shrinking Man was released for the first time as a stand-alone DVD on Aug. 30, 2011, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment for the list price of $19.98.

The movie stars Grant Williams (Doomsday Machine) as Scott Carey, a regular joe who sails through a strange radioactive mist during a boating trip one day, resulting in him slowly shrinking.

As time passes and he gets smaller and smaller, ordinary household objects begin to loom over Scott with lethal intensity, while even greater dangers lurk around the corner in the form of a house cat and a spider. Carey must rely on his wits to survive in his new oversized world … and the world that awaits him as continues to shrink.

Directed by genre journeyman Jack Arnold (who has helmed everything from the 1958 teen exploitation film High School Confidential to a couple dozen episodes of Gilligan’s Island in the 1960s), The Incredible Shrinking Man has only been available as part of Universal’s Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection, Vols. 1 & 2 DVD … until this release!

No special features are on the new DVD.
