Dr. Xavler (Milliband) develops eyedrops intended to increase the range of human vision, allowing one to see beyond the "visible" spectrum. Believing that testing on animals and volunteers will produce uselessly subjective observations, he begins testing the drops on himself and discovers that he can see though people's clothing, and uses his vision to save a young girl whose medical problem was misdiagnosed. Over time and with continued use of the drops, Xavier's visual capacity increases and his ability to control it decreases until he can no longer see the world in human terms, but only in forms of lights and textures that his brain is unable to fully comprehend.
His behavior becomes increasingly erratic, and Xavier's associates assume that he is going insane. After a fatal incident Xavier is forced to go on the run but is later tracked down by associate Dr. Diane Fairfax (Van der Vlis) who discovers that by continually using the vision drug Xavier has developed a sensitivity that has caused shocking changes in the doctors persona.

A superb period piece of science fiction - "X": The Man with The X-Ray Eyes review by RP

Spoiler Alert

Directed by Roger Corman this is one of his typical 'B' movies, an early 1960s low budget sci-fi film about a doctor who develops a serum to enhance the sensitivity of the eye to a wider spectrum - then experiments on himself.

The running time of 75 minutes is just right - the storyline is slim, and any longer would drag - as Dr Xavier (Ray Milland, wearing his usual hairpiece) sees his vision improve to where he can improve medical diagnosis, see through clothes, beat the house at a casino, then go downhill through 'mind reading' to being disabled by the sensitivity of his eyes...

Modern effects would both enhance and yet ruin this film - it is what it is, a period piece of science fiction. Superb stuff - 4/5 stars, although that does seem a little generous.
