Watch the film Fear the Invisible Man – A young English widow protects an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity deteriorates, he plots to create a wanton reign of murder and terror across the city. First things first, Fear the Invisible Man is not a sequel to the 2020 version of The Invisible Man although I’m sure the filmmakers wouldn’t mind if you thought so. Instead, it is an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel that, unlike most adaptations of his work, retains the book’s Victorian setting. Griffin (Mike Beckingham, Redwood, Subconscious) races against time to complete his experiment. The reason was, the landlord and a bailiff were banging on the door, ready to throw him out. Injecting himself with it moments before they kick in the door, his flesh and bones vanish and he escapes, though not before causing an explosion that kills them and destroys his lab. Elsewhere Adeline (Mhairi Calvey, The Summoner, 3 Lives) reads in disbelief about a series of crimes allegedly caused by an invisible man. She had other things to worry about, since her husband’s death, she had struggled to pay the bills and avoid selling the manor. So you can imagine his surprise when Griffin, his former classmate, turns out to be injured and hiding in his house. He needs her help not only with his injuries but in retrieving his journal from Marvel (Grahame Fox, Judas Ghost, The Convent) a homeless man he coerces into helping him and who promptly takes his notes and money and pulls the stunt himself. . Director Paul Dudbridge (The Christmas Storybook, Horizon) and writer Philip Daay (White Sky, Captors) maintain a loose sense of fidelity to Wells’ novel, incorporating some characters and incidents while making some substantial changes as well. Notably Fear the Invisible Man replaces the book’s male Kemp with Adeline Kemp to play up the previous romance and potential triangle involving Inspector Adye (Wayne Gordon, 400 Bullets, Miss Willoughby and the Haunted Bookshop) who suspects and has feelings for Adelina. It also allows the financial problems caused by her husband’s death to be a reason for her to help him with his plans, at least until she realizes how badly her husband’s mental state has rotted.
