the invisible man review 2020

Is this the first real horror movie of the #MeToo era? Leigh Whannell‘s nerve-jangling The Invisible Man bears almost no resemblance to the 1933 Universal pic starring Claude Rains, nor does it take much from the original H. G. Wells novel of the same name. About the only thing Whannell’s modern-day update has in common with those titles is that it involves a dangerous, and invisible, man. But with that basic set-up, Whannell has crafted a surprisingly timely tale of an abused, terrified woman fighting like hell to convince everyone around her she’s telling the truth.

the invisible man clips

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have released two clips from director Leigh Whannell‘s remake of the classic monster movie The Invisible Man. The remake takes the sci-fi concept of a man rendered invisible to the world, and turns it into a metaphor for domestic abuse, with Elisabeth Moss‘ Cecilia unable to escape her abusive ex — figuratively and literally. The two new The Invisible Man clips show Moss’ character attempting an escape, and finding later on that there’s no real escape for an abusive relationship.

the invisible man trailer new

A new trailer for The Invisible Man is here, and it looks intense as hell. Like the first trailer, there’s a sense that the marketing is maybe giving too much away here, but even so, it’s effective. In this new take on the classic tale, Elisabeth Moss plays a woman who escapes from her abusive boyfriend (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Or so she thinks. Even though her ex is soon presumed dead by suicide, Moss suspects he might be lurking around…unseen.

shirley review

No mere biopic, Shirley is a haunting portrait of author Shirley Jackson, telling a tale that didn’t actually happen. This is a fictional biography, and yet every moment rings true. Director Josephine Decker and screenwriter Sarah Gubbins have captured Jackson’s literary voice, while Elisabeth Moss has captured the late author’s very essence itself. Moss is so good here it’s scary, playing Jackson as a raging, neurotic mess prone to fits of crippling depression and bursts of brilliance. She’s a force to be reckoned with.
