The Invisible Man (Directed by James Whale/1933/71 mins.)

“Catch Me If You Can!”
A mysterious stranger, his face swathed in bandages and his eyes obscured by dark spectacles, has taken a room at a cozy inn in the British village of Ipping. Never leaving his quarters, the stranger demands that the staff leave him completely alone. That’s because his entire body is undetectable to the human eye. Monocane, the drug responsible, has also had the side effect of driving him insane. As he dies, he is revealed to be Claude Rains, making his first American film appearance. So forceful was Rains' verbal performance as "The Invisible One" that he became an overnight movie star, after nearly twenty years on stage.
“Brilliantly directed by James Whale, The Invisible Man is a NEAR UNSTOPPABLE COMBINATION OF HORROR AND HUMOR!”-All Movie Guide

UNIVERSAL HORROR MOVIE POSTERS!
By illustrator ROB KELLY
Re-inventions of movie posters for the classic Universal monster films!
“I am a HUGE fan of the classic Universal Pictures' Classic Horror Monsters films-Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature of the Black Lagoon, The Mummy, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Invisible Man. So I came up with the concept of producing a series of posters for the films, pretending as though they were being re-released in theatres. I wanted to have them be a combination of retro and modern design styles. I kept thinking, what would catch my eye while walking through a theatre lobby? I wanted them to have a cohesive look, since they were all part of this imaginary reissue series. But, of course, they each needed to look distinctive, too--from the Grand Guignol horror of the Frankenstein films, the moodiness of Dracula, and the later, more studio-backlot-ish style of The Wolfman.”-Illustrator Rob Kelly
The exhibition of these posters at MBC is the debut of the designs in large format. Come experience them all October, and into November! For more info on Rob Kelly, visit www.NAMTAB.com.
