Mick Garris on

X – The Man with X-ray Eyes

Released 1963
Distributor AIP

It’s not exactly The Lost Weekend, but Oscar-winner Ray Milland does pretty well for himself by this low-budget but intriguingly Promethean 1963 sci-fi outing from Roger Corman, which anticipates the alternate reality concepts of his later The Trip. Of course the trailer is more interested in the “X-ray specs” aspects of the idea, like seeing through women’s clothes!
