There have been several iterations of the invisible man archetype in film history, but none as distinct as Hollow Man (2000), Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), and Leigh Whannell’s 2020 rendition, The Invisible Man. What starts off like a twisted version of Sleeping with the Enemy turns into a mindfucking science fiction horror thriller soon enough.
Good intrigue, calculated build-up; this thriller will surprise you at every turn. It’s unpredictable. In fact, it’ll make you drop your guard and grab you by the throat when you least expect it. This is a grim story about a scientist who’s gaslighting his wife, even after his death. Elisabeth Moss looks like she’s been through a lot, and she’s an amazing casting choice.
You’ll be on the edge of your seat. Expect several efficient jump scares that are earned. Expect a slow pacing in the first two acts that end up compressing the third one, where too much is said and done. This is an amazing horror film with a bad conclusion. Sometimes, less is more. The Invisible Man is an excellent thriller, a ground-breaking horror movie, but it’s poor science fiction.
