Do you ever wonder if the "mad scientist" movie will ever make a comeback? In Man-Made Monster (aka The Atomic Man), Lionell Atwill stars as the mad scientist who turns a likable circus performer (Lon Chaney Jr.) into a mindless human power station, with so much electricity coursing through his body that he can kill with one touch.

The mad scientist movie will make a bit of a return this Summer, when Warner Brothers releases Splice, starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as geneticists with a dangerous experiment of their own.
