The Invisible Man Appears & The Invisible Man vs. The Human Fly 04/17/21

Reviewer Charlie Largent takes on the challenge of figuring out this pair of vintage sci-fi pictures from Japan. The invisible man of the first film (1949) takes second place to an odd crime yarn about a thief that wants to possess a particular jewel. The invisibility idea makes little internal sense — the film’s most interesting aspect is the unusual actress Takiko Mizunoe. The second ‘invisible thriller’ is even more of a puzzle, a battle between and invisible man and a criminal who can shrink himself. Arrow’s extras help us understand what’s going on… a little bit, anyway!  On Blu-ray from Arrow Video.
