The Invisible Man is in theaters on February 28th, 2020.
Elisabeth Moss returns to the big screen in the newest reboot – The Invisible Man. Moss plays Cecelia, a
battered woman desperate to get away from tech giant/her abusive husband Adrian Griffin. When she
escapes in the middle of the night, she thinks she’s finally gotten away. Then when news comes out that
he’s taken his own life and left her all his fortune, she knows deep down this may be too good to be
true. So, when strange things start happening that quickly turn dangerous, she realizes she’s being
hunted by someone she can’t see.
For the record, I’m a huge baby when it comes to scary movies. I do enjoy them, but I am so jumpy and anxious the whole movie. That being said, I never would have thought NOT being able to see the villain could amplify that even more. This movie was the perfect amount of scary AND suspense, where the audience can see something that Cecelia can’t, and it makes things all the more appealing. The acting in this movie was great, with Elisabeth Moss proving once again she can play a battered woman almost too well. I was also pleasantly surprised by Euphoria (amazing show on HBO if you haven’t seen yet) star Storm Reid! She kicked ass as the strong-willed daughter of a cop trying to help Cecelia.
Overall, The Invisible Man felt smart and well-acted. There was a lot going on, but it still kept you on your toes. It was maybe a hair longer than it needed to be, but I really enjoyed powering through the suspense to make it to the end. While the concept of The Invisible Man isn’t new, the 2020 remake brought on some fresh, scary twists.
