Universal Monsters

  • The Invisible Man (1933)
    • A good doctor creates a way to turn himself invisible, but it drives him mad in the process in this film that's more technical feat than solid horror thriller.
  • The Invisible Man Returns
    • Years later, the Invisible Man is back, although it's really his brother who also was forced to become invisible when he was accused of a murder her didn't commit.
  • The Invisible Woman
    • Universal further broadens out its "Monsters" genre with an Invisible movie that leans towards screwball comedy over horror.
  • Invisible Agent
    • Why make the Invisible Man into a monster when there are Nazis to fight? That's the logic behind this fourth film in the series which casts the title character against some of history's biggest monsters.
  • The Invisible Man's Revenge
    • Betrayed by his friends, we have another Invisible Man going through a quest for revenge (and the same old motions as his predecessors).
  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
    • With the scary monsters movies dead, Universal attempted to relaunch the series with a crossover film featuring the comedic stylings of Abbott and Costello. Although popular at the time, this film isn't really all that funny in the modern era.
  • Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man
    • Bud and Lou help a disgraced boxer framed for murder, who then goes invisible to get justice, in this weak but tolerable comedy.
  • The Invisible Man (2020)
    • Almost 90 years after the original, Universal revisits one of thier first monsters with a new tale of a mad man gone invisible.

Hollow Man

  • Hollow Man
    • Unrelated to the other works of invisibility, this new tale (from Paul Verhoeven) gives us Kevin Bacon in a film that's as much CGI tech-demo as it is an attempt at a modern Invisible Man.
  • Hollow Man 2
    • This all but stand-alone sequel has little to do with the original film (including absolutely no returning cast members) but still, somehow, manages to be pretty decent (considering).
