The Invisible Man (1933)

This is easily one of my top 3 favorite Universal Monsters.

The Invisible Man, a very well adapted version of the H.G. Well's novel starring Claude Rains. The story follows a scientist Jack Griffin, who has discovered a formula to make himself invisible. He soon tries to find an antidote but before he can, he goes mad and runs amok. Now I love this movie, the special effects are amazing not just for the 1930's but for today as well since it was all done practically and I still have no idea how they did most of them, this definitely has a perfect blend of both comedy and horror, and the greatest aspect of the movie is Claude Rains himself. He has an absolutely fantastic voice for the role, showing sympathy and also ruthlessness in one of his most famous roles. What can I say? This a great movie, well worth your time and money and this is a film I will revisit for the rest of my life.

Well guys and gals, we only have one Universal Monster movie left tomorrow. And just for fun, I want you to take a guess as to which Universal Monster I will be for Halloween. The options are in the movies I have reviewed this week. See you tomorrow.
