The Amazing Transparent Man 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
For a movie that was probably made for next to nothing this is really a pretty good crime/sci-fi programmer. Director Edgar Ulmer is famous for making good looking low budget films and this is one of his best.
Douglas Kennedy is bank robbing safe cracker Joey Faust sprung from prison by James Griffith(usually a bad guy in b-Westerns and tv shows of the period)to steal radioactive isotopes. Of course to do this Faust has to become transparent and is subjected to radioactive bombardment himself…talk about Faust selling his soul!
Corny, insane, implausible. Yet it somehow works! The acting is top-notch for this kind of stuff and the direction is sure-handed. It’s under an hour and ends in a big explosion!
The ALPHA dvd is very good offering a clear picture at a bargin price. Marguerite (FLIGHT TO MARS) Chapman, Red Morgan (he’s in Ulmer’s BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER, probably shot around the same time) and Ivan Triesault(the mad scientist here) co-star.
Wonderful, whacky fun, a bit sleezy and well made!
