The Invisible Man; What to know before you watch

The Invisible Man;  What to know before you watch

The Invisible Man came out on February 28, 2020, and with a 9 million-dollar budget many viewers have said that the movie is great and is a must watch. As Peter Travers who is an American film critic said, “Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man is a chilling mind-bender that strikes at our deepest fears — the ones we can’t see.” With an average of 4.2 starts out of 5 stars and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, many would say that the film produced by Blumhouse Productions, Nervous Tick, and Goalpost Pictures, and directed by Leigh Whannell turned out better than excepted.

According to the official description of The Invisible Man, “After staging his own suicide, a crazed scientist uses his power to become invisible to stalk and terrorize his ex-girlfriend. When the police refuse to believe her story, she decides to take matters into her own hands and fight back.”

The movie is also a “potent reminder that gun rights are human rights, especially for women” says

While the new Invisible Man is kind of like a remake of the 1933 Invisible Man many question how scary the new movie is and if its worth the watch for the die-hard fans of horror movies. Whether you like jump scares or you get  freaked out by them, or being scared by the movie’s more psychological side, everyone is different when it comes to being scared. However, the movie has many different sides to include with its scariness, the gore is just one of many aspects that makes it a good scary/horror movie.

You will be able to see throats squirting blood, cuts on the wrist, gun shot wounds, and all the sounds of what each slash, cut, and wound sounds like. Another aspect to consider is the creepiness, the way that Moss plays her character in a distressing, very physical way allows the view to really follow in with the movie, and along with the visuals in the movie the creepiness is high. While the creepiness and the scariness are fairly high during the movie the suspense is a major killer for this thriller. Many cuts in the movie has a camera slowly pan through a room, ladders, and sounds of human breath to build the suspense. The movie does a great at the suspense part that even before the jump scare happens you are already nervous for what will come next

While The Invisible Man is about a crazed scientist who faked his own suicide to use his powers to make himself invisible to stalk and terrorize his ex-girlfriend, it does a great job about showing how the ex-girlfriend fires back at him and takes back her life without letting him terrorize her every day.
