Editorial Reviews

The scream that shocks the screen with 300,000 volts of horror! He is inhuman...invincible...inescapable...indestructible! Presenting The Indestructible Man, a horror classic now available for the first time on DVD in a 1.85:1 anamorphic film transfer from High-Definition elements! Terror rises from the Los Angeles sewer system as monster icon Lon Chaney (The Wolf Man) returns to life after being executed in the Big House. His first stop? One of LA's sleaziest strip joints! His next stop? Find the partners who double-crossed him following an armored-car holdup and put him in the electric chair. What happens next is a chilling tale of an unstoppable force driven by revenge. For the first time fans will be able to enjoy this science fiction favorite from 1956 in a brand new wide screen anamorphic film transfer mastered from HD, plus bonus features: the original trailer and a ''Remembering Lon'' video featurette.

Customer Reviews

Don't try to electricute Lon Chaney Jr. It will only make him angry.
Chris Aitken
In the bad directorial decision department, there are a few times that Pollexfen has Chaney make Lugosi-Dracula-like googly eyes while he moves towards the camera.
Farffleblex Plaffington
Benton realizes all of this, and the last thing he says before he is executed is that he is going to get the three who betrayed him.

Just watched my copy of Retromedia's remaster of Indestructible Man yesterday and directly compared it to both the Roan and previous Retromedia (Lon Chaney Collection) releases. With all due respect to the previous reviewer, the new transfer blows them both away in terms of sharpness/detail, contrast/brightness, and framing (matted at 1.66:1 anamorphic). There is still the usual minor speckling and blemishing, but this is far and away the best this movie has ever looked on home video, and obsoletes all previous DVD versions. A major upgrade from the Roan and Chaney Collection releases, with much-improved black/white levels and richer grayscale, and the definitive home video edition as of this date.

Does it look like a fully restored, major studio release? Of course not. And if Warner still has materials on this in their vaults and someday releases an official 1.85:1 widescreen, remastered DVD (two big ifs), will it look better than this? Most likely, yes. But, for now, if you want the crispest, best-looking version of Indestructible Man out there, this is it.

Note: The Retromedia DVD is listed on Amazon as the Bayview Entertainment/Widowmaker release, and has the words "Widescreen High Definition Film Transfer" at the top of the front cover and green-tinted likeness of Chaney.

This is a fun film. Don't try to electricute Lon Chaney Jr. It will only make him angry. Fun film, w/ lots of 1950's atmosphere. Great entertainment for fans of Chaney (and Sci Fi fans alike). Chaney's mad (insane) rampage throughout this film , is worth watching. Very entertaining and (somewhat) highly recommended.

Format: VHS Tape
In the 1950s, there were tons of sci-fi/horror films. A few of them were outstanding (The Day the Earth Stood Still, Creature From the Black Lagoon), and some stinkers (Plan 9 From Outer Space, Bride of the Monster), but the majority of them were solid, middle-of-the-road flicks. Indestructible Man falls in this category.
The film was no challenge for Chaney from an acting standpoint. He only had a few lines at the start of the film before he was rendered mute after being brought back to life in an experiment. However, he did come through by some of his facial expressions that told the viewer what he was thinking. For instance, he arrives at the office of one of his victims to find it empty. He appears frustrated, but then, he hears the elevator coming, and a satisfied smirk comes over his face.
The film was definitely low budget, and Chaney was probably doing it for a payday, but it does have some good moments. The scenes in the Los Angeles sewer were suspenseful, and in some of the killings, Chaney's body language and his brutality lived up to his character's nickname of "The Butcher."
It is a shame that Chaney enjoyed true stardom for only a few years with Universal in the 1940s as he played nearly every movie monster they had. He was then cast aside in character roles and movies such as this. He was a much better actor, and his talents were wasted. But, like a true professional, he took his medicine and continued to work hard, making several movies throughout his career.
Indestructible Man is not for every one, but if you are a Chaney fan and love these types of movies from the 1950s, then it is a worthy addition to your collection.

Like it or not, this is one of the most loveable bad B- sci-fi-horror films of all time AND a great travelougue of 1950s LA. What else would you expect this film to be but low-grade schlock? Go in with that mind-set and you'll love it. I got my copy out of a bargain bin for $1 and have since inspired three other friends to get their own copies through Amazon. They love it for everything from Chaney's pitifully bad performance (oh, those close-ups of his quivvering eyes!) to the footage of Angel's Flight in all its filthy 50s LA glory. Get a copy, chill out and enjoy this film for what it is: BAD and FUN!

Format: DVD
Ultra-cheap 1956 rehash of Boris Karloff's "The Walking Dead" and Lon Chaney's "Man-Made Monster." This time around, Chaney portrays the resurrected criminal - doing his best amid the endless narration and recycled stock footage. Director Jack Pollexfen devotes more attention to sleazy noir than sci-fi horror. Sloppy editing and scripting (with inept dialogue worthy of Ed Wood) prevent "Indestructible Man" from being a lively drive-in gem.

Format: DVD
''Despite the strong Frankensteinian theme, Lon Chaney Jr. puts a distinct stamp of individuality on this classic movie (`The Indestructible Man'). The mayhem is chilling, all the more realistic for Pollexfen's masterful direction. Chaney and Karloff were in a class distinctly their own, and none of the present crop of schlockmeisters come close to them.''

The "mastered from HD" dub from Bayview/Widowmaker (the same public-domain DVD purveyor as Retromedia) offers the same ol' 16mm print. If you already have this title from any source, don't waste your money on this one.

Sometimes an independent film company succeeds in a film despite its normal handicap of a shoestring budget. In the case of THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN director Jack Pollexfen uses the eye twitching talents of Lon Chaney Jr to create a weird period piece that both harkens back to the early career of Chaney who used to thrive on such off beaten roles and looks forward to the modern day Terminator series that features Arnold Schwarzenegger in a similar role as the bullet proof protagonist. Added to this was Pollexfen's use of a Dragnet-style narrator using co-star Max Showalter, who as Detective Dick Chasen, sounds remarkably like Jack Webb as Sgt Joe Friday. Usually, the graininess of a cheapo like this one works against the viewer's getting involved in the action, but in this case, Chaney's twitching eyes (whenever he gets angry--in nearly every third scene) become a symbol of an uprooted emotion of anger that is dramatically emphasized by numerous scenes of Chaney simply walking the streets,looking for his former cohorts in crime who betrayed him for $600,000. Chaney is 'Butcher' Benton, a career criminal who unwisely links up with a sleazy lawyer and two other lowlifes to steal money. They offer Benton to the police. But before Benton is executed, he vows revenge. Up to this point, this is a straight crime drama. Director Pollexfen quickly switches gears to the realm of science fiction by having Butcher's corpse wind up in the hands of two of television's most widely known second bananas, Robert Shayne (from Superman's Inspector Henderson), who plays mad scientist Professor Bradshaw and Joe Flynn (from McHale's Navy Captain Binghampton), as his geeky assistant. This pair revives Butcher by zapping him with 270,000 volts of electricity.Read more ›
