THE INVISIBLE MANS REVENGE
The Invisible Man's Revenge has little connection to the preceding films. It does star Jon Hall as the invisible man, a role that Hall also played in The Invisible Agent (1942), although the character here has a different name. The invisible man here is named Griffin, although is not related to the invisible man Griffin from either of the first two films. This is in fact an original story of its own rather than a seqiel. The story takes its time to get going in a film only 78 minutes long, it is fully 20 minutes before we have an invisible man and then it has to swing a contrived plot device about he seeking shelter at the house of a scientist conducting invisibility research and agreeing to become a test subject.
However, the film is well directed by former serial director Ford Beebe. There are some good invisibility effects with the invisible man splashing the likes of water and flour on his face at various points. As with The Invisible Man (1933) and with The Invisible Man Returns (1940), there is a great deal of humour made out of English provincials. Leon Errol as the invisible mans visible assistant gives a very funny performance the invisibly assisted darts game in the pub is a comedic gem. John Carradine is also rather funny as the mad scientist of the piece with a lab full of invisible parrots and dogs that he nonchalantly treats like his pets.
The other Invisible Man films are: The Invisible Man (1933), The Invisible Man Returns (1940), The Invisible Woman (1940), The Invisible Agent (1942) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951).
