THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933)

After the incredible success of FRANKENSTEIN (1931) Director James Whale chose a story by HG Welles as the basis for his next horror themed picture and he pulls out all the stops.

Introducing actor Claude Rains to the world THE INVISIBLE MAN is a dark and horrific comedy with some visually stunning special effects.

Rains develops a formula to turn himself invisible and the result is that he is slowly driven paranoid and mad, sending him on a murderous rampage while his friends try to stop him.

The elements we'll see in THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN are touched on here which will top this one when it's released in 1935.
