Storyline

A budding young scientist lad is caught by his mom checking out the lady across the way with his telescope, whereupon she lectures him on the evils of women. Twenty years later and all grown up, the scientist announces his theories of invisibility, and his colleagues laugh, to which he responds by killing four of them. He escapes from the loony bin and gets a job teaching summer school physics at a high school. The students decide to tease him about the same time as he perfects his invisible juice, and he goes on a spree of vengeance. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Goofs

Dornwinkle (the Invisible Maniac) tosses a radio into the water on the shower room floor, electrocuting one of the girls as she's taking a shower. A few scenes later, the same radio (the masking tape on the speaker gives it away) is on a table in the cafeteria, playing tunes as two students eat lunch. See more »

Exquisitely bad!
17 February 2000 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

To use a line from Dan Ackroyd on Saturday Night Live: "Exquisitely Bad!"

This movie was obviously a send up of 20-50's "mad scientist" flicks in the context of a teenage (victims) slasher film-- and it delivers!.

Throw in one professor making up for sexual/professional inadequacy by stalking a bevy of horny, oft times naked teenage girls and boys, cheerleaders, the "in crowd", jocks, mental feebs, and a horny female child molester principal and this movie cant be beat!

My favorite part of this movie is the multitudinous up the skirt shots and clothes rip offs.

Be sure to watch till the end and listen to the more than singable closing theme song.
