Hollow Man & Hollow Man 2 Special Edition Arrives On Blu-ray

Before Jason Blum and Leigh Whannell bring The Invisible Man back to the big screen, what better time to revisit another horror spin on the concept. From the mind of visionary director Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop and Starship Trooper) come two tales of transparent terror!

Kevin Bacon stars as the ruthlessly ambitious Dr. Sebastian Caine, a brilliant scientist with the ego to match; he is heading up a groundbreaking top secret research project (that features Josh Brolin & Elizabeth Shue). The goal of their expensive government-funded endeavour is to create a stable serum to turn a person invisible. In a bid to expedite their work, Caine volunteers himself as a test subject for the serum, what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, everything does go wrong as Caine embarks on a murderous rampage!

Meanwhile, the Paul Verhoeven produced Hollow Man II tells the story of Michael Griffin (Christian Slater – Mr. Robot), an invisible assassin gone haywire. Facing a slow death unless he receives a life-saving antidote, it’s down to biologist Maggie Dalton (Laura Regan – Dead Silence) and homicide detective Frank Turner (Peter Facinelli – The Twilight Saga) to take whatever measures necessary to apprehend this unseeable menace…

Featuring Oscar-nominated special effects, adrenaline-pumping suspense, and provocative commentary on the nature of power and corruption, Hollow Man and Hollow Man II are ripe for reappraisal with this lavish collector’s edition box set from 88 Films!
