I rarely go the cinema now and made an effort to see this when it came out. I felt it was over hyped and resembled a BBC production.
I didn't think Daniel Radcliffe was a good actor in it, and some of the dialogue was bad, and not in keeping with the period setting, but the atmosphere and the production design was very excellent, and the ending had a sting to it.

This is one of the modern Hammer attempts to appeal to an audience tired of the gothic horrors of the 60's and always suffered a bad reputation.
I watched the DVD the other night and it seems to get better with each viewing. The music is funky, the cast is great, the resurrection scene is very intense and it is incredibly entertaining, even if poor Christopher Lee looks fed up at being brought back again!

I recently watched this on the excellent Columbia/Sony DVD, with includes a superb colour booklet, detailing the film's history and featuring many photos.
I'd never seen it on TV and tended to stick to the more traditional horror titles, but was surprised at how powerful it was, and Hammer did a good job for the most part of conveying a Japanese prisoner of war camp, bar a few typically English trees in the background.
I could see why this was so controversial back in the 50's. I'm sure people didn't want to be reminded of the horrors that prison camp inmates had to endure.
I almost didn't recognise Barbara Shelley, who looked very young and still lovely, even without makeup.
Highly recommended for the film and the excellent booklet. I hope more films are released this way.

The Invisible Man needs a remake, and it should star Jared Harris as the title character. It should be a retelling of the original H.G. Wells story, and bring up the same points that the original Universal film did, like the terrible power an Invisible Man would hold in his hands if he were to create a way to become Invisible.
Harris has the ability to play gentle, good characters, as well as sinister and evil, which is exactly the character of the Invisible Man. He starts out good, but the chemical solution he creates to turn himself invisible corrupts his mind, turning him into an unstoppable terrorist. He's the perfect choice!
Hammer, please, make this happen! We need a good update of the story, and not something like "Hollow Man," which completely botched the concept.

Herbert Lom's Phantom was the 1st scary memory film i have in childhood; not even the chaney film creeped me out the way the acid burns of Lom did long, long ago.
