The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man ★★★★

The special effects work are genuinely wonderful even 90 years later! I appreciate that they hardly wait to unveil everything, as we get small glimpses pretty early, and then a full unmasking within the opening 20 minutes. And while Dr. Griffin isn't above childish pranks (no doubt a limitation of the time), his intelligence and malice makes him a uniquely scary character.

Una O'Connor maybe over does it a touch, her screaming gets a little grating at times.
