As “The Doctor is In-SANE!” month continues, tonight the madness spreads- as the great John Carradine is a scientist- not Dracula, this time!- who helps a crazed man seeking vengeance started down that road- and the road to being even MORE insane- in “The Invisible Man’s Revenge”!
In a little bit different storyline, a young man -one Robert Griffin (no relation to the original H.G. Wells Griffin) who suffered amnesia after an attack in the jungle finally remembers his past- which includes a partner he feels double-crossed him, left him for dead, and became wealthy from their co-venture of a diamond field. He demands his half of the wealth- but his partner claims it’s all gone! One thing that ISN’T gone- the partner’s beautiful daughter, whom Griffin still has eyes for- even if she is already engaged!
When his demands seem too intense, his partner and his wife drug Griffin and toss him out- but, in his aimless wanderings, he tries to escape the rain at the home of one Dr. Drury( Carradine), who has developed a serum that causes invisibility- and is in need of a human subject to try it out on! Griffin agrees, and his vengeance knows no bounds- endangering both those who are against him- and the one he supposedly loves!
