A remarkable cinematic achievement rightfully categorised as a horror classic, albeit with a discernible, measured thread of comic verve and goofy humour. Demonstrating groundbreaking visual effects and showcasing an even stranger and amoral antagonist than Frankenstein's monster, the story addresses the folly of man in terms of harnessing intellectual dominion and notoriety through scientific ach... read more

Description: Making a magnificent screen debut, Claude Rains stars as a scientist driven mad by an invisibility potion in this adaptation of H.G. Wells's classic story. Featuring groundbreaking special effects, the film follows the increasingly demented Jack Griffin (Rains) on his murderous rampage through an English village as he searches for the invisibility's cure. The police, Griffin's girlfriend (Gloria Stuart), and his fellow scientists race to capture the Invisible Man before before he kills again--and before he realizes his goal of world domination. With THE INVISIBLE MAN (the first film in a series), James Whale (FRANKENSTEIN) pr ... (more)

"Dr. Jack Griffin, a British scientist who has discovered the secret of invisibility and has taken the drug responsible for the incredible feat. The drug, however, also drives the doctor mad. Griffin goes on a violent rampage, and the police struggle to hunt him down, unable to see their target, while his mentor and his former partner desperately try to devise a plan to capture him."

"Re-watch - Oct. 18th I think it's safe to say the kiddo liked this one the best out of the collection so far. She was very impressed with the effects, questioning how they could pull them off back then. I kept my mouth shut, letting her enjoy the mystery and wonder of it. "

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"James Whale’s anarchically playful The Invisible Man is an outlier among Universal’s line of classic monster movies. More of an inventive mash-up of black comedy and sci-fi than true horror, the film is an incendiary piece of speculative fiction that counterbalances its cautionary-tale tropes by perpetually reveling in the chaos its megalomaniacal protagonist stirs up, even as his intensifying violent impulses shift from harmlessly prankish to straight-up lethal. This pervasive sense of mora"

Horror Films Of The 1930's (15 movies items)

"In comparison to the other Universal horror films of it's decade, this one may be the most underrated. It only received one sequel, and even today, is not spoken of nearly as much as films like "Frankenstein" and "Dracula". Which is just a damn shame, because it's one of the best. Directed by James Whale, who also helmed the Frankenstein films, this one pushed the boundaries of horror films even further with it's special effects, which still hold up today, for the most part. Claude Rains is fant"

" With impressive special effects for its time, THE INVISIBLE MAN is an old-school horror film that is rather funny in the most macabre way. Featuring a stellar performance from Claude Rains, this film is a showcase in insanity and mayhem, as Rains is quite literally murdering nearly everyone thanks to him being invisible. It's a scary idea and the execution in THE INVISIBLE MAN, to bring that terror alive, is done to perfection. "

“A remarkable cinematic achievement rightfully categorised as a horror classic, albeit with a discernible, measured thread of comic verve and goofy humour. Demonstrating groundbreaking visual effects and showcasing an even stranger and amoral antagonist than Frankenstein's monster, the story addresses the folly of man in terms of harnessing intellectual dominion and notoriety through scientific achievement. A document of its time that continues to attract contemporary viewership on the basis of its suspenseful, perfectly condensed examination of a scientist driven mad in the pursuit of power and recognition for his perceived genius, so much so that he is prepared to transform himself into a monster. "The Invisible Man" is a scintillating and superlative standout in the revered canon of Univ” read more
