This was a hell of a lot of fun not to mention the state of the art effects make this a real thrill ride to watch. We meet a young couple out on a boat ride. The male gets sprayed with some mysterious cloud of stuff and then he notices that he's shrinking. At first people think he's just imagining things but then he's undeniably small, so small that he'll living out of a doll house. Things are miserable until a cat comes in and makes things even worse stranding him in the basement. He's presumed dead so he has no choice but to fight against the odds and survive. It's really action packed, it's a great story and it's incredibly easy to watch, it's no wonder this one is a classic!
