Orloff and the Invisible Man (1970)
One rainy night, doctor Garondet is summoned to the castle of Professor Orloff (Howard Vernon at his manic best) but finds his journey blocked at several turns. The locals won’t direct him to the castle, and when he does find a willing coachman, his horse refuses to venture beyond a certain point so he’s forced to walk the rest of the way. Once the good doctor does arrive at the castle, he finds Orloff’s deranged daughter Cecile (Brigitte Carva) spewing nonsense about an invisible phantom that prowls the castle grounds. Orloff himself fills the doctor in on Cecile’s insanity, but as he spends the night in the castle, he begins to share in her delusions. Another mind-numbing piece of cinematic “what the fuck” from director Jess Franco is sure to have you scratching your head in amazement at times. Includes original French trailer and alternate “clothed” sequences that replaced some of the films nude scenes. Now out of print DVD.
