Abbott and Costello in the Horror Universe: ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE INVISIBLE MAN

8 May

Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.  


Release Date: 1951 (Contemporary Setting)

Series: Abbott and Costello; The Invisible Man (Universal)

The Story: Lou Francis and Bud Alexander have just graduated from detective school and gotten jobs working at a detective agency. They are hired by Tommy Nelson, a boxer wanted for murder who had ingested Griffin’s invisibility formula provided to him from his girlfriend’s scientist father. Bud and Lou must help Tommy prove his innocence before Tommy is overcome with the madness side effect of the formula.

Notes: This is a sequel. There are references to Griffin’s formula, his notes, and of course the madness effect. Though they are still using aliases, these must be the same Bud and Lou who also encountered Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, and another Invisible Man. This film follows the Invisible Man’s Revenge and is followed by Invisible.
