Legend says that Antonio Bay was built in 1880 with blood money obtained from shipwrecked lepers, which no one believes. On the eve of the town's centennial, many plan to attend the celebrations, including the murdered lepers.

Nick Halloway is accidentally made invisible during an accident. When Jenkins finds out about Nick, he set out to recruit him into the world of espionage, seeing the potential for an invisible CIA agent. When Alice Monroe falls in love with Nick, they are forced to flee the attentions of Jenkins. Nick also has the problem of living invisibly whilst trying to find a cure. Written by
Over the first minute or so of the end credits we see Nick skiing in snowy mountains, his head and face covered with a hat, goggles and scarf. He comes to a stop outside a large cabin. Alice comes out, evidently pregnant. Nick lifts his goggles and pulls the scarf down from around his face, but of course he is still invisible.

The first Chevy Chase movie that I ever saw...and it's in Movie Madness's horror section.
If you're walking through Movie Madness's horror section and see a Chevy Chase movie, you may think that it's either a joke, or that you're dreaming. Well, it's serious. "Memoirs of an Invisible Man" was actually the first Chevy Chase movie that I ever saw (and I even saw it in the theaters). Chase plays San Francisco stock analyst Nick Halloway, who becomes see-through after an accident. His only hope is documentary maker Alice Monroe (Daryl Hannah), but CIA agent David Jenkins (Sam Neill) has his eye on Nick (not literally, of course).
Much of the movie has Nick running away from people. Some scenes are just straight comedy, like his dream of undressing. But most of the movie portrays the grim world that Nick is forced to inhabit. Maybe this was an allusion to the malaise that had taken over the country during Bush Sr's presidency. I wouldn't call this John Carpenter's best movie ever, but I did find it interesting, if only to see Chevy Chase in a non-goofy role.
