A 666-Character Review of ‘X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes’
Released in 1965, Roger Corman’s classic X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes takes viewers down a suspenseful rabbit hole of dangerous, untested science experiments. Sparked by the desire to further the scope of human vision, Dr. James Xavier creates a serum to allow sight to extend through objects. Some of the script, acting and effects are a bit cheesy, but nothing feels out of place given the genre and time period. While Corman has expressed regret in not adding a final line of dialog, I think the film carries itself just fine on its final reveal. Despite being over 50 years old, X still has staying power with its horrifically entertaining medical advancement.
