As you know, I love sci-fi/monster/horror movies with the best of them so I decided to try something new on C&L for the weekend, it's called "Saturday Nite Chiller Movie." I borrowed the title from the 60's horror showcase called Chiller Theater for fans who remember it on WPIX in NYC.

There are so many cool 1950's films to choose from - some great, some bad, some so bad they're wonderful, but I thought, let's start off with a true sci-fi classic called 'The Incredible Shrinking Man.'

(The video quality is very good.)

Den Of Geek summarizes for us:

Jack Arnold, one of the hardest working men in cinema sci-fi (he directed three movies in 1955 alone), directed this excellent adaptation of Richard Matheson's novel, perhaps one of the most poignant sci-fi movies of the 50s. When strapping businessman Scott Carey (brilliantly played by Grant Williams) encounters a cloud of hydrogen while holidaying on his yacht, little does he know that the gas will have a terrible and irreversible effect on his body.

I'm going to suspend the LNMC on Saturday's just for a while to see how this works out. Please feel free to share music and other movies in the comment section and let me know if you're down with this new idea. And if you have the time, then make some popcorn and enjoy the show.

Can you help us out?
