From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The film was directed by Roger Corman and stars Ray Milland as Dr. James Xavier. A world renowned scientist, Dr. Xavier experiments with X-ray vision and things go horribly wrong. Most of the cast are relative unknowns, but Don Rickles in notable in an uncharacteristically dramatic role.
The movie was notable for its use of visual effects to portray Dr. Xavier's point of view. While crude by later standards, the visuals are still effective in impressing upon the audience the bizarre viewpoint of the protagonist.
