STARRING: Stephen Boyd, Raquel Welch, Edmond O'Brien, Donald Pleasance, Arthur O'Connell, Arthur Kennedy

1966, 100 Minutes, Directed by: Richard Fleischer

Description: When a brilliant scientist falls into a coma with an inoperable blood clot in the brain, a surgical team embarks on a top-secret journey to the center of the mind in a high-tech military submarine shrunk to microbial dimensions.

This film, based on the adventures of a submarine crew of sorts shrunk to microscopic size and injected into somebody's bloodstream, was later novelised by Isaac Asimov (although it wasn't his story idea). Later on, Innerspace would use the same premise.

Unfortunately Fantastic Voyage has aged badly and the once revolutionary special effects not merely pales in comparison to many of today's offerings, but looks downright silly. With little else to compensate, this rather slow film would of curiosity value to film scholars, but little else.
