The Invisible Man Returns 1939 Review
The Invisible Man Returns is a 1939 science-fiction horror film directed by Joe May and starring Vincent Price, Cedric Hardwicke, and Nan Grey.
The film is a sequel to the 1933 film The Invisible Man, and follows the story of a man who becomes invisible and uses his newfound power to solve a murder mystery.
Vincent Price delivers a solid performance as the lead character, injecting a sense of pathos and desperation into his portrayal of a man struggling to control his invisibility.
Hardwicke provides strong support as the film’s villain, adding a sense of menace and danger to the proceedings.
One interesting fact is that The Invisible Man Returns was one of the first films to explore the concept of invisibility as a curse, rather than a blessing.
This idea would go on to influence many later films and TV shows, including the classic sci-fi series The Twilight Zone.
Overall, The Invisible Man Returns is a worthy sequel to the original film, with strong performances and a solid storyline.
Its exploration of the darker aspects of invisibility make it a standout among other sci-fi films of the era.
