Now THIS is what Universal should be doing with their Classic Monsters – updating them and attempting to make them scary again [like they were for audiences in the ’30s and the ’40s] rather than putting them in Marvel-style, family-aimed action pictures. The trailer for The Invisible Man seems to promise a really tense, frightening movie, and despite not being a fan of remakes I am now really psyched for this one!
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass, escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, their childhood friend and his teenage daughter. But when Cecilia’s abusive ex 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.
Lee Whannell writes and directs, while Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid and Harriet Dyer star.
February 28, 2020 is the release date.
