Director Leigh Whannell’s take on the H.G. Wells classic horror ‘The Invisible Man’ has reached digital platforms due to the coronavirus pandemic, and for those looking to shell out $20 for a good movie, this is a solid option.
Elisabeth Moss’ performance as Cecilia is refreshing to see in a horror movie, where often times a victim can make dumb, non-sensible decisions. Cecilia is not only smart, but calculated and shines through the entire movie.
The story is simple: “After staging his own suicide, a crazed scientist uses his power to become invisible to stalk and terrorize his ex-girlfriend. When the police refuse to believe her story, she decides to take matters into her own hands and fight back.”
The innovative wrinkles to make this story updated for today, especially with the “how” around the ability to be invisible, make this movie interesting aside from the plot.
The characters make sense, the pace is enjoyable, and the twists are memorable. Tie in a couple “shocking” moments and this movie could easily be the best thriller of 2020.
