Invisible Ghost is far from the best of Bela Lugosi's Monogram vehicles (if indeed there is such a thing), but with Joseph H. Lewis at the controls it is far and away the best directed. Lugosi is cast as Kessler, an otherwise normal gentleman who goes balmy whenever he thinks about his late wife (Betty Compson).

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

An absurdist masterpiece for its title alone

It's one of those laughable and forgettable cheapie films that should be appealing to cult fans and those viewers who can never get enough of Bela.

Audience Reviews for Invisible Ghost
