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>

I loathe that laugh
20 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Young Kevin is scolded for spying on an undressing neighbor. When he grows up, he's a scientist working on an invisibility potion. When said potion doesn't work when he shows it to his colleagues, they laugh it him so he kills them and is sent to a nut house. After escaping he gets a teaching job and perfects the potion. So when the kids laugh at him he becomes an invisible maniac. Even the extreme copious amounts of nudity can't really save this film, that being said I have seen worse. MUCH worse. I didn't even know it was supposed to be a comedy though. So at that it fails miserably.

My Grade: D

Eye Candy: Savannah,Dana Bentley,Stephanie Blake,Debra Lamb,Melissa Anne Moore,Kalei Shallabarger all show breasts and ass numerous times, Tracy Walker shows breasts, buns, and quick bush
