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.

The Invisible Man is one of the many creatures from the suite of Universal Classic Monsters. The franchise has had many iconic characters and villains but their representation in the 21st Century has been rather underwhelming. That may change with the release of The Invisible Man. 

Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, who also wrote the screenplays of the Saw and Insidious franchises, The Invisible Man has a new perspective on this dark character and takes inspiration from the Universal Monster films of the past, but comes with its fresh take. The movie does not take its time to build tension like conventional horror films do but jumps straight in with the main protagonist Cecilia Kass making an impressive escape from her abusive husband, Adrian Griffin.

With her successful getaway, Cecilia manages to live in secrecy in the confines of her friend’s house, James Lanier and his daughter, Sydney. While Cecilia lives in fear, she receives news that Adrian is dead and she is left with a fair share of his money. Relieved upon hearing the news, Cecilia soon realises that things are not over yet. Adrian was a genius scientist in the field of optics. Cecilia becomes paranoid as she keeps thinking that something is stalking her to the point where people around her starts to question her sanity. So did Adrian pass away or is Cecilia just being oversensitive? You will have to find out for yourself in the theatres.

What makes The Invisible Man stand out from the current crowd of horror movies in recent years is the way the story is told and with a different type of scare factor. While other movies scare you through jump-scares or visual effects, The Invisible Man uses a different approach. Without going into spoilers, Whannell makes the audience feel that Cecilia’s paranoia is justifiable to the point where you become the character and experience what she goes through. By playing tricks on your mind, this scares you in a way you might have never felt before.
