Seen on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater in 1965
7 May 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

1960's "Invisible Creature" was one of the numerous foreign titles (British, Japanese, Mexican, West German) issued straight to television in the US by American International Pictures, who even hired home grown talent to supply them with product (Larry Buchanan in particular-"Zontar the Thing from Venus"). The American copyright is 1964, and the film debuted on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater on May 8 1965 (paired with 1959's "A Bucket of Blood"), shown again July 23 1966 (paired with 1958's "It! The Terror from Beyond Space"), and finally on August 2 1969 (paired with 1958's "Terror in the Haunted House"). Constantly shown throughout that decade, few of these have survived the test of time to be revived anymore. Today, "Invisible Creature" is deservedly obscure, as it is very low key, with a tiny no name cast (Sam Kydd a welcome presence) and nonexistent budget. Also, the new American title rather gives the game away, the original British version called "The House in Marsh Road." Patricia Dainton stars as Jean Linton, the wife of a once successful author (Tony Wright) now drinking more than he writes, who inherits a two story country cottage inhabited by a ghost. Once the husband's wandering eye settles on an attractive widow (Sandra Dorne) who prefers the company of wealth, he begins to plot a way to bump off his unknowing spouse so he can rid himself of her ancestral home. What the pair don't know is that the never seen spectre appreciates Jean far more than they do, watching over her while she remains under its roof. The exotic Sandra Dorne would meet a similar fate in 1963's "Devil Doll." I've always held a certain fondness for this one even though it's fairly predictable, but those who never viewed it back then may find it unrewarding.
