  1. pintobean's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    That slow, unraveling reveal still packs a bit of a punch almost 90 years later.

  2. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    Entertaining and amazing effects. Rains' vocal performace is impressive, but Gloria Stuart is hard to endure.

  3. kartina obskura's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    when i want to feel invisible but without murderous intentions, i just put dark big sunglasses on

  4. Terri Wise's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    I've always been a Claude Rains fan--how can you not be? Rains and the original H.G. Wells source material are fantastic, the early special effects are entertaining, and Una O'Connor adds a spot of humor to the proceedings. Henry Travers (probably best known for his portrayal of Clarence Odbody in It's a Wonderful Life) also makes an appearance. This one's a lot of fun.

  6. Balthaz21's rating of the film The Invisible Man

  7. L'immoralistee's rating of the film The Invisible Man

  8. Diderot's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    Probably the least interesting of the classic Universal horror films.

  9. Marcus Killerby's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    The more visible he becomes, the closer he comes to death. I love this movie for how irreverant it is about authority and the police; for how the main character is naked most of the time and constantly pointing it out; for how amazing the special effects are 83 years later. A wonderful movie

  10. HSBilly's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    rains was remarkable. in 1933 there was an invisible man in the cinema, people surely was in awe. well, im in awe!

  11. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film The Invisible Man

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    Como varios de los clásicos de horror de la Universal Pictures, todo inicia con un loco desquiciado obsesionado con algo, en este caso, el ser invisible. ¿De dónde proviene el pánico o el gran clímax de la película? El que un orate está suelto y es invisible. Aunque anticuado, los efectos de invisibilidad para este tiempo no eran grandes retos. Es por eso que la escena de una quijada invisible es la mejor de todas.

  13. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    Like Dracula's Daughter, a 30s horror footnote that is perhaps more interesting than its more celebrated cousins.

  14. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    4.5 Novelistic abundance! It is remarkable what Whale manages to cram into 70 minutes + Cinematic magic! As good as, perhaps even better than Melies.

  15. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    My fav Universal monster film. Just does so many things right. Very inventive visual effects for the time

  16. pluviosity's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    perhaps it was the early days of cinema business, but still... such an awful acting and awful editing. Almost ruined the whole thing, the imaginations, the ideas of paranoia and human identity. P.S: an extra star. I don't know is it a truth or just psychosomatic, but somehow that innocent, true passion of cinema-making still can be felt.

  17. Mx Nihil's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    "I meddled in things that man must leave alone."

  18. Addy K.'s rating of the film The Invisible Man

    While the simple and blunt plot is meant to entertain, James Whale has something else up his sleeve: a gleefully macabre study of what Nietzsche called "superman"; someone society fears and destroys. Claude Rains is superb, intoning a performance based purely on voice inflection. And I can only imagine the sheer wonder 1933 audiences felt watching a man disappear in front of their very eyes. The power of cinema!

  19. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film The Invisible Man

  20. José Neves's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    cinematography by Arthur Edeson.

  21. Howard Orr's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    The style of acting in films is what really decides whether they date well or not, and "The Invisible Man" is creaky in places because of that; but the film remains hugely alluring because of Reins' gleeful rebellion against authority. Perhaps we love movies about (megalo)maniacs because deep down we believe their victims are getting what they deserve.

  22. seeyourvoice's rating of the film The Invisible Man

  23. Brian O'blivion's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    Inventive visual effects. The rest... not so inventive.

  24. SlavicaSkoric's rating of the film The Invisible Man

    after rating the second part of the franchise, i wanted to say something about the first part as well. what i find interesting about this movie is not the invisibility theme (that alone i would openly dislike), but the portrayal of insanity into which invisibility drives an individual. this is an sf movie, but the invisibility issue might as well be the everyday side effect of blending into today's oblivious society.
