The Invisible Man
James Whale was a trusted name back in the day when it came to horror movies. After all, the man made Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. He also made The Invisible Man, which is still effective nearly eighty years later.
Even after all this time, the special effects still work. I mean, this is a post-Avatar world so most special effects pale in comparison. But the ones in The Invisible Man just work. Seeing the half-exposed Invisible Man is shocking. (Boy, that sounded dirty, didn't it?)
The Invisible Man still packs a hell of a wallop even after all these years. Every scene builds up to a pitch perfect ending which uses those special effects wonderfully. If you've seen it, you'll agree with me.
My Rating: *****
