Then, intrepid archeologists exploring caves in the mountains of Asia encounter "The Mole People" (1956), hunchbacked, bug-eyed creatures who serve an subterranean race of albinos. With Agar, Hugh Beaumont, Cynthia Patrick. An ordinary man (Grant Williams) is exposed to radiation and discovers to his horror that he's become "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (1957). "The Monolith Monsters" (1957) are meteorite fragments that grow into crystalline towers and start wiping out a small Southwest town...and anything else in their path. Williams, Lola Albright star. And a college biology professor is transformed into a rampaging Neanderthal man thanks to a serum extracted from the fossil of a prehistoric fish, in "Monster on the Campus" (1958).
