Fear the Invisible Man takes us back to the H.G. Wells classic and takes a few liberties along the way by adding some twists, turns, and of course more bloodshed. Of course, Universal Monsters also incorporated Well’s character into their lineup of creatures. And in some ways I believe the original Invisible Man film to be the most monstrous character among Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, etc…
While Frankenstein and the Wolfman might come off as the tortured victim of someone else’s doing, The Invisible Man did it to himself and became obsessed with results and immediately found ways to use his condition to break the law and to ultimately murder.
The synopsis for Fear the Invisible Man goes like this:
Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, a young British widow shelters an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity frays, he schemes to create a reign of wanton murder and terror across the city.
Fear the Invisible Man stars David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart), Mike Beckingham (Truth Seekers). The film is directed by Paul Dudbridge and Written By Phillip Daay.
The film arrives on DVD, digital and VOD beginning June 13.
