Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) – John Carpenter

John Carpenter is the filmmaker that shepherds in this little offshoot of the mad scientist sub genre in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies, as we explore some of the Invisible Man stories… Chevy Chase, Daryl Hannah, Sam Neill and Micheal McKean all come to play in this version of the story that sees Chase’s…

Harvey (1950) – Henry Koster

James Stewart turns in yet another amazing turn, as I continue my way through DK Canada’s The Movie Book.
