    The premise behind this is not to see things from the Invisible Man's perspective, but from those who aren't aware he's even there, which creates an effectively nervous atmosphere. 2 years 1 month ago

    Blumhouse's version of The Invisible Man might be the scariest version of H.G. Wells' story - I say story, but concept would be more accurate - with an incredible amount of edge-of-your-seat tension, the thriller elements helped along by some shared frustration with the lead, though I often felt the manipulation and resented it. As a techno-thriller, it isn't immune to plot holes, and where invisibility is involved, there is always going to be some hand-waving as to how it actually works as you see it on screen. I'm not, by nature, a nitpicker, but my brain was constantly distracted by that kind of stuff. But the story nevertheless drew me in emotionally. There was an opportunity to make the monster more ambiguous as a presence - is Elisabeth Moss' character imagining it or not? - but once you've revealed you're doing H.G. Wells, albeit from a different POV, that's kind of out of the window. The film still manages to say something about toxic relationships and how a woman rids herself (Halloween 2018-style) of that negative presence in her life. Plenty of thrills, scares, and "how will she get out of this one?" moments along the way. I'm also always stoked to see Aldis Hodge (from Leverage) in stuff, and he's got a good role here. There are plot contrivances, sure, but The Invisible Man immerses you in a high-anxiety universe so you don't see (or mind) them. 2 years 2 months ago

    This was surprisingly good. Nice suspense building and very few jumpscares for Blumhouse standards. 2 years 2 months ago
