|Movie Review| The Invisible Man (Spoiler Free)

What you can’t see can hurt you..

Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

This is one of Elizabeth Moss’ best roles.

Horror movies nowadays seem to have trouble building and keeping the suspense, but The Invisible Man did everything right. With the many reboots of the 2000s, it is easy to get compared to and washed away, but The Invisible Man shines bright and will go down in thriller/psychological cinema history. The audience was silent throughout the whole film, waiting for that next jump scare to come. Each one would hit and the crowd would break into screams then instantly back to the edge of their seats.

I give The Invisible Man an 8.5/10. I was on the edge of my seat for the whole 2 hours and 4 minutes. I was never bored, and I could never guess what was coming next.
