Invisible Ghost (1941) is a horror film starring Bela Lugosi, shot in black and white, and directed by Joseph H. Lewis.


Charles Kessler (Bela Lugosi), a man controlled by homicidal impulses beyond his control. He is being controlled by his wife, Betty Compson - Mrs. Kessler who had left him for another man. She was involved in a car accident that has left her brain damaged and is kept in the basement, in secret, by Kessler's gardener. When an innocent man is executed for a murder done by Kessler in the house, his twin brother visits and tries to unravel the mystery. In the end it ends up that Kessler really is the killer and he doesn't know it. Kessler looks at the painting of his wife (that is stabbed on the throat) and then walks out to be arrested.
