MM - You are Awesome!!!



You caught this wave just as it was forming. Even as I thought Universal's "Dark Universe" was dead in the water, the studio releases one of the most interesting re-imagined take on their classic character.



Universal Studio wants to "revive" their roster of the most famous movie monsters. Roll call for Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Invisible Man - who wouldn't want to bring back to the Big Screen the world's most famous monsters?



With, "The Invisible Man", Universal now has something to bank on. This looks like the movie Monster Fans have been waiting for. There's nothing creepier than what you can't see, but you know it's there. 



At first Cecilia is completely shocked by the suicide of her abusive boyfriend, Adrian. But like everyone around her, Cecilia accepts the fact that Adrian is dead. However, Adrian was no ordinary dude, he was the world's formost scientific researcher in Optics - the management of full-spectrum light.



Soon strange things begin to happen, things that hint that someone is following Cecilia, yet no one is there. As the number of "coinsidences" increase Cecilia is convinced that Adrian has faked his death and is using his breakthrough cloaking technology to stalk her while remaining invisible.



This movie offers the "Double Whammy", A) Cecilia continues to be harrassed by her boyfriend who can't be seen in his invisible suit. B) And no one believes Cecilia, in fact everyone thinks she's insane and needs to be hosipitalized!



But We Know the Truth!

The horror genre doesn't have the love it once had, but I gotta say, I'm intrigued by this film.smiley

Some of the best moments from my childhood were walking to school in the 60's with my friends. We would talk about TV shows and movies, but one conversation stands out.



Remember back on RetroJunk we used to chat about "low-budget" movies?  Well, one morning back in 1968 I got into an argument with my friend Jerry - the Comicbook King. He explained how some low-budget films were so "low" that there was no money for monsters or space aliens.



It's my contention that movies where the antagonist does not appear but is only refered to are more fun to watch becaause you learn about the character "second hand" through the protagonist. You don't see the threat, you imagine the threat through the actions and words of the main characters.



Of course, I've seen plenty of TV shows and movies where there is no monster, and no scripts either! The whole show is made-up as you go, LOL!



 



The Invisible Man has knocked out of theaters the anime movie, "My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising":
