Richard Matheson on Film

#1 Post by thirtyframesasecond » Tue Jun 19, 2018 1:27 pm

I think a few Matheson adaptations have been discussed across the forums, but so many of his work has been adapted for television and film that it deserves its own thread!

I was watching Somewhere in Time earlier today, which is probably not considered amongst the best of those adaptations, but remove the implausible logic of the time travel, and it's pretty moving once you factor the Rachmaninoff in!

Any faves?

I just watched Arrow’s recent release of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” and can highly recommend it for its existential dread.
