The Invisible Man: a gripping (and creepy) thriller

Score 92%

Those who’ve read my posts know I rarely review horror movies because … well, they really scare me. However, I like Elisabeth Moss. I believe she’s done a fantastic job in the Handsmaid’s Tale. Therefore I was willing to give it a go. I was not disappointed.

The Invisible Man is the right amount of creepy without the gore. I could not stop watching it (even though I had to cover my eyes a couple of times). Brilliant!

What you can’t see canRed slashnot hurt you…

In the dead of the night, Cecilia Kass escapes her young, handsome and wealthy boyfriend. Why? Her sister and her friends have no idea. No one knows the extent of abuse she has suffered. They soon realise though that she is terrified. She cannot sleep or get out of the house. Everything is a trigger. She knows he will never give up. He will find her.

 

Or will he?

One day, she learns that he committed suicide leaving her a big portion of his money. Is it all too good to be true? Is her violent, controlling ex really gone?  Or just invisible?

No one will help you if you claim that your dead boyfriend has turned himself invisible and is stalking you. How will she prove she is being hunted if no one can see him?

Adrian was brilliant. But it wasn’t because of anything he invented, it was how he got in people’s heads.

Indeed, The Invisible Man is not just a reboot. Yes, it is based on H.G. Wells character but it has been cleverly reworked to suit a new audience. The new monster is a physically and emotionally abusive husband which makes it even more terrifying. Enjoy!
