This post for The Invisible Man is spoiler-free.

The Invisible Man (2020, written and directed by Leigh Whannell) tells the story of Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss), who is being stalked by her rich and manipulative boyfriend Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen).

Somebody stop torturing Elisabeth Moss already! Known for her role in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Moss seems to take on roles where her characters are living in a complete nightmare. Moss is captivating as Cecilia, as audiences are able to see her journey of being a victim to a victor.

The Invisible Man‘s twist is brilliant and clever—not something that one might guess at the beginning of the film. The film doesn’t beat around the bush and jumps straight into the main events; audiences never get to see cuts of how Cecilia and Adrian met, or the abusive treatment that Cecilia faced when she was living with Adrian, such events are only told through a “he said, she said” scene.

The film’s score is one of the most intense tracks I have ever heard. Not only complementing the film’s story, the vibrant and intense musical score scares audiences at the right moments.

Overall, The Invisible Man is an excellent horror film with a few impressive jaw-dropping moments that will surely leave one in awe.

Rating: 4/5
