Movies With Theories To Consider

With my preoccupation with the 4th dimension (see tab above), I am hoping to upon occasion explore the concept with y'all. I am hoping to co-write a book about the subject of the fourth dimension in relation to the concepts of heaven and the paranormal. If I could just give up that pesky full-time job--what a time whore!

Here are some awesome flicks that have you thinking about theories and possibilities. They are really fun! Fear Chamber (aka Chamber of Fear) and 4D man are on instant watch on Netflix and all three of them can be found on YouTube (links below) saved in parts so you can watch them in order. I admit to having a monster crush on 4D man as a kid. I have always adored steel-jawed lab nerds!

Fear Chamber: 1968. Boris Karloff. When he realizes that the intelligent, telepathic rock formation he's discovered feeds on a chemical that humans produce when scared, Dr. Carl Mandel (Boris Karloff) creates the chamber of fear to farm a steady stream of sustenance for the mysterious stone. Featuring the iconic Karloff in one of his final big screen performances, this campy 1968 thriller is co-directed by Jack Hill, a protégé of B movie pioneer Roger Corman. You can find all the parts of this one on YouTube

The Stone Tape 1972. A research team from an electronics company move into an old Victorian house to start work on finding a new recording medium. When team member Jill Greeley witnesses a ghost, team director Peter Brock decides not only to analyse the apparition, which he believes is a psychic impression trapped in a stone wall (dubbed a "stone tape"), but to exorcise it too - with terrifying results... You can get all the parts of this classic on YouTube--one of my favs!

4D Man 1959. Science whiz-kid Tony Nelson (James Congdon) has made an amazing discovery: He's developed a method for stimulating the molecular structure of matter, enabling objects to be joined and to pass through one another. But when Tony's older brother (Robert Lansing), a fellow scientist, takes the experiment a step further and applies the technique to himself, his newfound abilities know no bounds -- ultimately leading to disastrous consequences. You can catch the parts of this movie on YouTube.


  1. I thought the 4th dimension is Time?


  2. It's been described as all the dimension of the third world including time in the equation. I suppose the assumption from that is being able to be everywhere at once or in the case of that movie concept, the ability to not be solid as we know it, but to be able to pass through things on a molecular level.

  3. 4D man looks pretty good! :D

  4. It's one of my very favorite of the 50s SciFis and I'm a freak for 50s SciFi.
