The Invisible Man Returns was Vincent Price's first horror film. Not being able to see Vincent Price, only hear his voice, is very unsettling. We do see his face but not until the very end. I liked the original The Invisible Man the best, but this film holds it's own. It was well made and the special effects were very good for the day. Some good lines in the move also, "Orders to shoot on sight... I thought he said the bloke was invisible?" Not a classic but enjoyable.★★★
