This issue, Midnight Marquee #77, offers two feature articles. One a "Forum/Against 'Em" analysis of the James Whale Universal classic The Invisible Man, with many arguing it remains the best film that Whale directed and features the best use of humor in classic horror cinema. Unfortunately, I argue that the film is the most overrated of the classic Universal canon and that its overuse of special effects and silly humor ruins what could have been the classic horror movie that many people consider it to be. And secondly, to add a contrasting 1950s touch, we feature a detailed analysis of The Deadly Mantis that makes the strong case that this generally disparaged or ignored giant bug epic is one of the finest examples of the genre. And yes, we have oodles of DVD and book reviews to fill out the remainder of the issue.
