Critic Reviews:

Scientifically it’s nonsense of course. It ignores the problems of mass, for instance (as my old friend Ray Bradbury used to say, “If you have a brain the size of a mouse, you’re going to want to run around walls and eat cheese.”) but it’s still good science fiction because its central protagonist undergoes a science-related experience which fundamentally alters his perception of the universe.


Horror fans should ask this vital question: Who or what is the monster in this film? To which I'd reply, what isn't monstrous? Certainly, the cat and spider, drawing upon Hollywood's fascination during the 1950s with creature features, become alien-like, monolithic monsters.
