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

Superb adaptation of HG Wells' novel

I was interested in seeing this film. I like the book, I love Claude Rains and I loved the classics Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein which were also directed by horror maestro James Whale. After finally seeing it I wasn't let down. The only minor problem I had was that Una O'Connor's screaming occasionally got on my nerves, but that's to do with preference. The Invisible Man had held up amaz... 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)

Taste of Cinema's Essential Pre-Code Hollywood (30 movies items)

"In his first starring role, Claude Rains had to direct all acting efforts into his voice. As an ambitious scientist that finds a way to become invisible, but ends up losing his sanity, the actor developed his character using solely his tone of speech and a memorable sadistic laugh. Still, Rains did is so well, one will likely remember his performance, even though he doesn’t show his face for more than 5 minutes during the whole feature. James Whale’s classic also offers some amazing special"

I might even wreck a train or two... just these fingers around a signalman's throat, that's all." Directed by James Whale Written by R.C.

My Top 275 Favorite Horror Movies of All Time (275 movies items)

"  A year before this movie was released was another horror film that was also adapted  from a famous novel (well, more specifically, a novella) from the late 1800's, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. And what made that movie such a landmark in the world of cinema was it groundbreaking special effects in transformation of Jekyll into Hyde.   This time, in The invisible Man (based on a pretty famous story by sci-fi/horror legendary scribe H. G. Wells),  the FX that breaks ground in this film lasts pre"

“I was interested in seeing this film. I like the book, I love Claude Rains and I loved the classics Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein which were also directed by horror maestro James Whale. After finally seeing it I wasn't let down. The only minor problem I had was that Una O'Connor's screaming occasionally got on my nerves, but that's to do with preference. The Invisible Man had held up amazingly well, and the production values look lavish and don't look as though they've creaked. The music is excellent, the direction is top-notch and the screenplay is great. The story is still compelling and does justice to the book, while the atmosphere is suitably eerie and the special effects are pioneering. The acting is fine, Claude Rains was a brilliant actor and gives a superb performance in ” read more

"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. "
