Modern Day Horror Master Jason Blum offers us a terrifying reimagining of the classic tale by H.G. Wells. Writer Leigh Whannell brings the tale to life with a topic that is so relevant for today. Though domestic abuse has been around since the beginning of the human species, it has come out of the shadows by so many brave women who dared to tell their stories.
And we know domestic abuse affects all regardless of race, social status or income, it is even more important to shed light on this terrible offense.
In this version of The Invisible Man, Leigh Whannell takes us into the world of Cecilia Kass(Elisabeth Moss). Cecilia is seen escaping from her home in the middle of the night. The scene is intense and scary because we feel her terror as she moves through the house to freedom. Once away she camps out at the home of a long time friend James(played by Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter Sydney(played by Storm Reid). It becomes extremely clear the terror that resides with Cecilia when a simple task to walk out the door to get the mail is filled with fear. Her freedom comes at a price and she has been told her husband Adrian(played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen) is dead due to suicide we can feel her fear, and doubt.
As it becomes clear Adran is not willing to let her go, Cecilia tries to tell James and her sister Emily(played by Harriet Dyer) that he is watching her: everyone insists that she needs to see a psychiatrist. Things get uglier and more terrifying for Cecilia in this remake and you will gasp, be shocked and scared all at once.
This is a must-see film and when you leave you will hope that our technology will never meet the science fiction world of The Invisible Man.
The Invisible Man opens in theaters, February 28th, 2020
