“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

The Invisible Maniac (1990)
aka The Invisible Sex Maniac
How bad is it? Poorly done late 80's slasher posing as a teen comedy. Should you see it? Not unless seeing a porn star in a non-porn film is your thing.
Scientist claims to have invented an invisibility serum, isn't believed and kills those who don't believe him, putting him in an insane asylum. He gets out, becomes a high school science teacher, perfects his serum and then proceeds to ogle naked teenage girls and then kill a dozen (maybe 13) people. One person is choked to death with a sandwich (!), another strangled with a fire hose, another drowned in a fish tank, another shotgunned, etc. There's plenty of nudity, including by porn star Savannah, who is not very convincing as a teenager (though she was may 20 or 21 at the time).
