Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that they are adding The Invisible Man to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by James Whale and stars Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart, Henry Travers, Una O’Connor, William Harrigan, and Forrester Harvey. The Invisible Man will be available in stores and online June 4, 2013.
The signature adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel of the same name stars Claude Rains as a mysterious scientist who discovers a serum that turns him invisible. Covered by bandages and dark glasses, the scientist arrives at a small English village and attempts to hide his amazing discovery. He soon discovers, however, that the same drug which renders him invisible is slowly driving him insane and making him capable of committing unspeakable acts of terror. Directed by James Whale, the horror classic features groundbreaking special effects by John P. Fulton that inspired many of the techniques that are still used today.
The Invisible Man was released on November 13, 1933.
