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 »

Why was their never a sequel?
19 October 1999 | by (England) – See all my reviews



Almost atypical shlock horror, with maniac professor spurned by mother as a child for watching nekkid chicks through his telescope rather than studying the stars, spurned again for a failed invisibility serum, the side effects of which cause him to kill those fellow profs who laugh at him.

Escaping the asylum, he turns up at a high school as a locum physics teacher, but perfects his serum on the side and spends his time disposing of the (mostly naked) female students who mock his gimpish looks. Electrifying some in the shower (cue much breast jiggling), drowning others in the fishtank (er, breast jiggling) and strangling with the firehose (you've guessed it, jiggling breasts here too!).

That's basically it. The girls are all very watcheable, but the maniac himself is from the overacting school of overacting and it really gets pretty silly in places.

Amusing skit at the end where the everpresent newscaster inexplicably loses here clothes on camera, suggesting the maniac is still around after all and a sequel is on the cards.

For some reason that sequel never came. Whether that's a good or bad thing I'll leave to others. I would have watched it had it been done!
