The Invisible Man is not the only movie to give us a new take on a classic monster.

7. Wolf (1994)
Another critical dud whose reputation has grown with time, Wolf stars Jack Nicholson as a literary editor who, after a lycanthrope attack in rural Vermont, finds himself newly energized. When he learns that he’s been replaced by a younger executive (James Spader), his new animalistic urges begin to overtake him. Directed by Academy Award winner Mike Nichols (The Graduate), Wolf has a remarkable pedigree. Though it feels like a holdover from the “greed is good” 1980s, the film is a biting metaphor for the cutthroat nature of the corporate world that outfits the werewolf myth in sharp new duds.

For nine seasons, NBC’s beloved sitcom The Office has introduced us to a treasure trove of fun, relatable, and often hilarious characters that viewers around the world got to know and love. But in the process of making such quotable and endearing television, the show creators also created a few, shall we say, less-than-desirable characters who brought their own brand of despicableness to Dunder Mifflin Scranton. Indeed, while there are several likable and lovable main and supporting characters who filled the cubicles of Dunder Mifflin, there are also a few folks viewers loved to hate, or simply hated altogether.

8. Robert California
When Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) left Dunder Mifflin, and Steve Carrell subsequently left The Office, there were mighty big shoes to fill, and the writers had to come up with a few ways to keep the viewers invested in the life-and-times of the Pennsylvania paper company despite the noted absence of its main character. One such personality was Robert California, played by the wonderful James Spader, who was a character who wanted to have a little too much control of the company. Specifically, Robert made himself CEO, which got under the skins of the Dunder Mifflin employees. Robert California does have an audience, and it’s easy to see why in the earlier episodes. But after a while, it’s hard to get invested in such a stock “rich, out-of-touch eccentric boss” character, and it ultimately wasn’t a shame when Robert California left, even though it’s hard to find many reasons to be excited about the absence of James Spader. Alas, by the end, this imposing, arrogant boss character just didn’t fit into the vibe of The Office.
