|"An inferior schlock horror
by Dennis Schwartz
inferior schlock horror comedy pic that uses the
theme of the superb The Invisible Man (1933). Adam
Rifkin ("Welcome to Hollywood"/"Reality
Show"/"Giuseppe Makes A Movie")
directs from a story he co-wrote with Anthony Markes
and Matt Devlen. It has tedious kills and lackluster
If that wasn't a trashy enough story, the subplot has the perverse principal blackmailing the male students caught as voyeurs. The hottie gals include Melissa Moore, Debra Lamb and the deceased porn star Savannah.
Just like the serum runs out for the mad scientist to his detriment, ideas run out for the story.
