    As someone not familiar with the source material (I have a physical copy of the novel, but just haven't read it yet) it was fascinating to see how different this version is compared to last years more contemporary adaptation, which takes a much darker angle in its approach. It still think this version is pretty good, especially considering how impressive the invisible effects would have been…

    Claude Rains sells this movie, everytime he's not present in a scene it feels kinda boring, but once he shows up it is NEVER. A dull moment.

    ★★★½

    If you know nothing about this movie, then I recommend watching before reading anything at all should you be so inclined.

    The happiest surprise of The Invisible Man was how much it didn’t conform to my expectations. I was thinking wacky hijinks with special effects that were amazing for the time. While there is a bit of that, the selling point (for me) was the surprisingly intense violence. If it isn’t a horror movie by contemporary standards, it still gets…

    Really great special effects for a movie from 1933!

    ★★★★½

    So simple in every stride that it takes. Doesn’t overstay it’s welcome and is wildly creative. Nearly 100 years-old and the special effects are magic. Great performances from everyone involved. Going to be hard to top this moving forward.

    ★★★½

    Doesn’t have the atmosphere or pathos of other Universal Horror joints and is a little one-note but has a satisfying amount of shenanigans, fires, explosions, and killings. Claude Rains gives a stirring performance despite being the Invisible Man. Impossible to not think about how often the Invisible Man is cock-out butt-naked.

    Jack is a chaotic dramatic little bitch, I love it

    ★★★★

    Everything an old b-horror movie should be: a perfect mix of laughing my ass off at “scary” floating pants and long monotone scenes where I can take a 7 minute power nap until the screaming resumes!

    James Whale was pretty much ahead of his time! 👀
