THE INVISIBLE MAN 2019): The Things I Liked…

The Invisible Man is a pleasant surprise of a film. From a clever story with twists and turns you don’t quite see coming to Elisabeth Moss’s impressive emotionally and physically demanding performance. Director Leigh Whannell does a good job of telling a thrilling and equally terrifying story about a woman who’s being hunted by her very abusive ex who also happens to be invisible.

Considering the nature of this story which is based on H.G. Well’s novel of the same name, let’s just say that The Invisible Man isn’t partly categorised as a horror film by accident. The horror part is very real, especially in the psychological sense.It’s also incredibly terrifying for women especially, but generally because very abusive partners exist.

Then there’s the idea that invisibility technology could also exist and end up in the hands of the wrong kind people. I’m no technology expert of course, but Whannell’s film somehow makes such technology or something like it seem far closer to what is possible than I’d like to admit.

Lastly, for those who aren’t the biggest fans of scary movies, will The Invisible Man give the average person nightmares? Probably not. But just know that it isn’t exactly comfortable viewing either because no horror / mystey / sci-fi that’s intent on terrifying us is.

Overall and more than anything, Whannell’s movie is thrilling, well, paced, cleverly shot and very likely surprising in a good way.

THE INVISIBLE MAN (2019): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Invisible Man (2020).

Directed by Leigh Whannell and based on the novel of the same name by H.G. Wells, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in a new sci-fi / horror / thriller.

Moss plays Cecelia who has the near impossible task of proving that she’s being hunted by someone no one can see, and that someone just happens to be her very abusive ex…

I’m really quite horrified by this story. I know it’ll be well acted and I imagine Cecelia will get her vengeance. She better!

I just can’t wait to see how well the special effects are executed. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if the invisibility ‘science’ will be explained…

Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Benedict Hardie, Sam Smith, Amali Golden, Anthony Brandon Wong, Zara Michales and Bianca Pomponio also star.

The Invisible Man Release Dates: February 28th, 2020 (US & UK)…
