Trivia

  • Invisible Man Appears was one of Eiji Tsuburaya's earliest projects as a special effects director. Tsuburaya would become renowned for his work on Godzilla five years later.
  • Daiei would later produce a second Invisible Man film, Invisible Man vs. Human Fly, in 1957.
  • Daiei's rival studio Toho would later produce its own adaptation of The Invisible Man, simply titled Invisible Man, in 1954. Eiji Tsuburaya would also work as a cinematographer and special effects director on that film.

Actually a pretty good mystery film with an interesting plot and characters. The special effects are also very impressive, especially considering this was before Tsuburaya worked on Godzilla.
