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)

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

"Claude Rains on 99 prosenttia elokuvasta näkymätön, mikä kismittää, sillä mielestäni hänellä on mitä mainioimmat kasvonpiirteet. Nyt oli tyytyminen ääneen.(26.4)"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"By 1933, English director James Whale was already a name synonymous with Hollywood horror, having cemented his reputation with the Boris Karloff vehicles 'Frankenstein' and 'The Old Dark House'. With his adaptation of H.G. Wells' science fiction novel 'The Invisible Man', Whale added another classic horror film to the canon. 'The Invisible Man' is also notable for providing the extraordinary Claude Rains with his first major screen role. Rains would later become known as one of Hollywood's fines"

"05.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY James Whale These special effects must have been spectacular in 1933, but today, the movie is just sort of fun and sort of irritating. In other words, it's exactly the kind of thing you can expect from a 1930s movie called The Invisible Man. "
