Cain is a brilliant and extremely arrogant young scientist, he
has been able to create a formula that allows the body to turn
itself invisible. There is, however, a drawback to the process,
the longer anything stays invisible the more hostile and aggressive
it becomes. After being told he cannot have any human subjects,
with the help of his team, Cain injects himself with the serum.
After the initial experiment and a few hours of observation, the
group begins to try and reverse the process. After nearly falling
into cardiac arrest, Cain can not be brought back to the visible
world, now with the clock ticking Cain and his scientist must
try to cure Cain before madness sets in.
Directed by Paul Verhoven, Hollow Man is an exciting and

feel to left out because you even get to see some of Bacon's
schlong in the first reforming sequence, so be sure to pause your
