Product Description:

A team of scientists is assigned to a secret government research project to experiment with the possibility of invisibility. When they find that one of their formulas works on animals, Dr. Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon) violates the rules of the project and tries it on himself. It works: he becomes invisible, but soon after that the team find that the formula is irreversible. He suspects his colleagues, Linda McCay (Elisabeth Shue) and Matt Kensington (Josh Brolin) of sabotaging him: making him invisible forever, and he decides to seek revenge on them.From the director of BASIC INSTINCT and TOTAL RECALL, Paul Verhoeven, comes this new suspense-filled thriller, full of special effects and technical tricks.

Plot Synopsis:

Washington D.C. scientist Sebastian Caine (Kevin Bacon) is under contract with the U.S. government to formulate a serum which will render human beings invisible. When his test serum makes a laboratory gorilla disappear and then successfully brings her back, Caine decides that it is time for him to be the next guinea pig. He and his team are ecstatic when the serum work. When the antidote fails to work as it did on the gorilla, however, Caine finds himself in the initially enviable, but ultimately horrifying predicament of being permanently undetectable to the human eye. Faced with the opportunity to perpetrate any crime he desires without fear of apprehension, Caine gives in to his basest desires. But when he learns that his that his ex-girlfriend and assistant, Linda McKay (Elisabeth Shue), is involved with their fellow co-worker Matt Kensington (Josh Brolin), Caine goes over the deep end, and is willing to kill anyone who tries to stand in his way, including his trusted fellow researchers. Director Paul Verhoeven (BASIC INSTINCT) puts a contemporary spin on the classic INVISIBLE MAN tale, turning it into a funhouse-style stalk-and-slash film with some of the most impressive visual effects the screen has seen.
