It is exciting, nail-biting, and a truly fun watch. It was hands down one of my favorite thrillers of the past year – and I am so glad since it’s the last movie I saw in theaters before this pandemic hit. Of course, I’m speaking of the critically acclaimed hit THE INVISIBLE MAN, starring the incomparable Elisabeth Moss.
Here’s a summation of my review from February, but you can read in its entirety here,
“With strong acting – Aldis Hodge (What Men Want, Underground), Storm Reid (Don’t Let Go, A Wrinkle in Time) and Harriet Dyer (The Other Guy, The InBetween) all brought their A-game – a remarkable turn by Moss, who more than makes you a believer as she struggles with an invisible presence throughout, and great cinematography, “The Invisible Man” is a sure winner for those who love the genre and will be a bit of a surprise, in a good way, for those who think they may not. I rate it 4 out of 5 on the MMTrometer.”
With a certified fresh rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is a sure-fire hit for those who love the horror/thriller genre and are seeking a fun watch this memorial day weekend. And our friends at Universal made sure I had a copy to view again, so I’ll be watching right along with you!
The at-home entertainment release of the film has twenty minutes of exclusive bonus content – including commentary by Elisabeth Moss, writer/director Leigh Whannell and deleted scenes that weren’t seen on the big screen.
THE INVISIBLE MAN is available now on digital for purchase, and on a wide variety of popular on-demand services as a premium rental offering, and will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray and DVD Tuesday, May 26.
Until next thought, Thomasena
THE INVISIBLE MAN synopsis:
What you can’t see can hurt you. Emmy Award winner ELISABETH MOSS (Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic Monster character. 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 Emily (HARRIET DYER, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend James (ALDIS HODGE, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter Sydney (STORM REID, HBO’s Euphoria). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex, Adrian (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 turn 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.
