Directed by Saw and Insidious creator Leigh Whannell, The Invisible Man finds Universal Pictures getting its groove back in a bid to revamp their classic movie monster universe. Brought to us by the red-hot Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, The Purge) and starring the greatest actress of her generation™, there were high hopes for this horror from the off.
Based (very) loosely on the H.G. Wells novel of the same name, The Invisible Man sees Elisabeth Moss‘ domestic abuse survivor finally escape her boffin ex-beau. But before too long, she gets the familiar feeling that she’s being watched. Far too closely for comfort. Here’s the 21 Word Review of The Invisible Man.
“Straddling horror, thriller and sci-fi, Whannell’s re-imagining is big on imagination and bang up to date. See it if you can.”
