If you like Total Recall... Philip K. Dick on screen

The remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger hit Total Recall opens in theaters tomorrow, but it's not just a redux of a schlocky movie – it's also a readaptation of the original short story, "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," by science fiction visionary Philip K. Dick.

Even though he saw rousing success in his lifetime with his dozens of short stories and novels, Dick's lasting legacy might be the film versions of his works. Philip K. Dick's stories have inspired some of Hollywood's most famous pictures. Before you get your memory wiped, make sure to experience these P.K.D.-inspired classics in our collection:
