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 »

The Invisible Maniac has a respectable enough story, in the tradition of the Nutty Professor, but it makes up for the bad acting and directing by throwing in numbing amounts of gratuitous nudity.
13 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Take one look at the cover of this movie, and you know right away that you are not about to watch a landmark film. This is cheese filmmaking in every respect, but it does have its moments. Despite the look of utter trash that the movie gives, the story is actually interesting at some points, although it is undeniably pulled along mainly by the cheerleading squads' shower scenes and sex scenes with numerous personality-free boyfriends. The acting is awful and the director did little more than point and shoot, which is why the extensive amount of nudity was needed to keep the audience's attention.

In The Nutty Professor, a hopelessly geeky professor discovers a potion that can turn him into a cool and stylish womanizer, whereas in The Invisible Maniac, a mentally damaged professor discovers a potion that can make him invisible, allowing him to spy on (and kill, for some reason) his students. Boring fodder. Don't expect any kind of mental stimulation from this, and prepare yourself for shrill and enormously overdone maniacal laughter which gets real annoying real quick...
