Basically a more benevolent rehash of the first film, but what really sells it is that Vincent Price is the man who becomes invisible. His playful nature makes it all float along until the inevitable conclusion.
Decent sequel, better than most of the Universal horror sequels, thanks in large parts to Price's solid performance in his first horror role getting very into the role. The film gets more interesting once Price's character goes down the rabbit hole of madness. Worth a look, just don't expect to be blown away like the original. 3 stars
Positivement moyen, n'arrivant jamais à la hauteur et à l'ambition de l'oeuvre originale réalisée en 1933 par le sublime James Whale. Reste tout de même le plaisir toujours vivace de retrouver un acteur étonnant : Vincent Price...
watching a black-and-white movie always makes me want to rate higher than i otherwise would. i paced myself for this one, but still, if it were of a more recent date, i'd give it two stars. not much to see here except for, of course, vincent price in his first horror-film role. i should add that i'm not a fan of invisibility themes in general which might make me partial while rating as well.
