21+ Invisible Man Reviews – Did Elisabeth Moss Use A Failed Marriage for Inspiration?

The Invisible Man ⭐️⭐️⭐️½

Nobody is saying Elisabeth Moss was abused in her prior marriage, but clearly something wasn’t right in the relationship. Both describe their marriage in an unfavorable light and this got me wondering if she used that negative experience and energy for inspiration in this movie.

Moss later described the relationship in a transparent interview with Vulture as a horrific experience. “Looking back, I feel like I was really young, and at the time I didn’t think that I was that young,” she said in 2014. “It was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible. At the same time, it turned out for the best. I’m glad that I’m not there. I’m glad that it didn’t happen when I was 50.”

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Star Elisabeth Moss Calls Previous Marriage to Former Saturday Night Live Cast Member ‘Traumatic’

Some actors and actresses can and do draw from personal life experience to enhance their performance.

Elisabeth Moss in this movie is utterly convincing. You feel for her every step of the way until the last 20 minutes of the movie.

… you have been warned, SPOILERS ahead ..

The Every Woman Elisabeth Moss

Part of what made Elisabeth Moss so believable in this movie, outside of her obvious great talent, is her physical appearance. She isn’t some overly skinny model type pretty woman actress. She’s has an average look about her. I’m reminded a bit of Scar Jo without the makeup in Marriage Story. Scar Jo is very pretty and I suspect that Moss is being intentionally made less attractive through makeup and wardrobe. This is very, very effective.

Nothing wrong with average, in fact, it works pretty darn good for a film where the horror of abuse is a real world issue. Viewers can just sense that Moss’s character is in real trouble. This just ratchets up the tension — in a very compelling manner.

Reviews by Others

Time to increase the visibility of others reviewing The Invisible Man:

Recommended

  1. Ben Watches Things: “…once the movie gets going it really gets going, becoming a bit more ridiculous but also a lot more fun as Upgrade director Leigh Whannell has a blast choreographing action and utilizing camera movements.”
  2. Critical Hit / Sam Spiller: “This is not H.G. Well’s Invisible Man. This is not even Universal’s 1933 classic version of the Invisible Man. This is Elizabeth Moss having to deal with her dangerous past no longer being metaphorical and in the room messing with her. I was on board from start to finish.”
  3. Critics w/o Credentials: “…delivered a suspenseful and tension-filled story that keeps you on the edge of your seat from the very opening frame to the last. Elisabeth Moss offers an amazing performance of a woman who is pushed past the edge of sanity and goes to the extreme to prove what she knows is the truth.”
  4. David A. Lynch: “…the evolution that “The Invisible Man” and its woman protagonist undergo echoes the kind of new-age story Whannell has created—one whose familiar title echoes new crises, and which suggests how a sense of security will cease to be, in one bloody way or another.”
  5. DiscussingFilm / Andrew J. Salazar: “…is another sign that horror could not be going in a better direction. Well worth the time spent in a packed theater- one is guaranteed to leave with new, enhanced, or challenging thoughts in their mind. What works so well even makes some minor horror tropes fairly forgivable.”
  6. Drew’s Writing Loo: “The notion of trusting in what your own eyes can’t see is handled with superb affect by Whannell who, through the first half of the movie, elicits unease from the simplicity of the unknown.”
  7. Edward Lauder / Small Screen: “I would say it’s not overly scary, but I found myself completely immersed in what was happening to Cecilia and there are some truly shocking moments.”
  8. filmfanstake: “…is a slow burn. The tension that builds throughout will have you on the edge of your seat and keep you invested. Moss delivers a powerful performance.”
  9. Full Circle Cinema: “…is one banger of a horror film, a career high mark for everyone involved. It has scares galore, a sublime central performance, and a mission: expose the real monster haunting our society.”
  10. Funk’s House of Geekery (7/10): “If you want a straight forward but effective thriller, you’ll do a lot worse than this. Elisabeth Moss certainly sells the material. She has a lifetime of acting experience and she carries this film with ease.”
  11. High Contrast: “I’m happy to say that tonight I saw a something that exceeded my expectations. This also means Blumhouse is back on my good side, for now at least, which is nice to say after I had to sit through Fantasy Island.”
  12. Keith & The Movies (4.5/5): “…is pretty great, not because of Blum’s formula or even H.G. Wells’ fantastic source material. Instead it’s writer-director Leigh Whannell’s slow methodical pacing. It’s the stellar lead performance from Elisabeth Moss.”
  13. Leithal: “…is exactly the kind of old school monster re-make that Universal needs to use as a template for standard both in writing and special effects. These films don’t need to be massive budget tentpoles to succeed.”
  14. Logan Burd / Cinema or Cine-meh: “…is edge-of-your-seat tense from beginning to end. There’s no need to prep a go-bag. You’re going to want to stick with this one.”
  15. Paul Anthony / smashwritingblog: “I give them credit with using a real situation that a lot of women go through well using technology to make him appear invisible. There was no over the top drug and what not. The story was simple and they used some jump scares to make their point but nothing felt over the top.”
  16. Pixels & Film Cells: “…it entertains and subverts so well. Leigh Whannel (who previously directed Upgrade) has shown immense growth here showcasing his unique talents for dark storytelling. I will be eagerly awaiting to see what he does next.”
  17. The Illuminerdi: “…may not redefine the genre, it certainly explores the perspective of the victim much more effectively than many of its predecessors. With a strong cast and an artistic directorial hand, the film knows how keep the suspense up for most of its length.”
  18. Tony Cogan / Coog’s Reviews: “By putting the focus of the version of The Invisible Man on the angle of domestic abuse, Leigh Whannell creates a tense, disturbing version of this story, knowing exactly how to build tension throughout the film, with Elisabeth Moss’ performance helping to add to the horror.”
  19. Twin Cities: “Here, the emphasis isn’t on the title nut-job and the perils of science, but on his ex-girlfriend who learns that an abusive lover can be just as dangerous when he’s nowhere to be seen.”

Not Recommended (or on the fence)

  1. Amused In The Dark: “I just can’t shake that people will be entertained by this and not get the horror isn’t the invisibility, its the abuser and the victim no one believes.”
  2. Startled Sloth Reviews / Sean Farley (6/10): “…was a pretty fun movie to watch, even if it didn’t really make a lot of sense once you start thinking about it for more than 3 seconds. The dialogue is generally pretty bad and the premise is goofy as all hell, but the movie as a whole is uplifted by its solid performances, effective use of violence, and deeply unsettling depiction of psychological abuse.”

Linked above and wondering what would be the cool thing to do next? Commenting once in awhile is always good (I like reader and other blogger interaction). If you have the trackback/pingback come to your site then just approve it because after people read your review then they can come here and follow links and read someone else’s review. What comes around goes around and sharing is the ultimate “thank you!” on the internet.

NOW PLAYING REVIEWS: The Invisible Man (2020)

Week #9 of 2020 (2/27-3/1/2020) and only one wide release movie to see. It’s from Bluhouse, a reboot of a classic Universal monster tale and called …

The Invisible Man ⭐️⭐️⭐️½

This movie took us both by surprise. Kara isn’t a big fan of horror and she actually gave this four stars in our video review (see below).

It doesn’t take the path of the scientist as the main character. Smart move considering recreating the awesome role Claude Rains played in the 1933 version would give difficult, if not impossible, comparisons.

Instead, this tells the story of Adrian’s wife, Cecilla (played skillfully by Elisabeth Moss), as the main character and how she deals with an abusive genius husband. In my review I called it, The Invisible Stalker, because that’s the story in a nutshell and it works well. His invisible torment of Cecilla is gripping. Camerawork of empty chairs and other furniture are creepy.

Cecilla’s harrowing, haunting journey is tense and thrilling. You want to see someone there … but they aren’t.

Our video review of The Invisible Man (2020)

Opening 2-28-2020 in Theaters: The Invisible Man (2020)

Wednesday, week #9 of 2020 (2/27-2/29/2020), is the third weekend with only one wide screen release of the year so far. The first was week #1 with The Grudge, followed by the beginning of this month week #5 with Birds of Prey.

These one movie only weekends feel strange to me. Why aren’t studios releasing more movies? Of all the studios making movies, how/why can there only be one movie being wide released? And yet if you look at the streaming world, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Would be lying if I wrote that I’m looking that forward to see what Blumhouse has done with …

The Invisible Man (2020)
[FIRST LOOK]

Blumhouse visibly imagines The Invisible Man, opening wide in 3,500+ screens on 2/27/2020

The original The Invisible Man ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(1933) is one of my favorite Universal Monsters movies. Black and white, Claude Rains, it’s more than just a classic, read my review by clicking the title. So, how do you remake a movie that was essentially perfect? You can’t.

I suspect what will be done is to tell a similar story, taking the essence of the original and spinning it a new way. This is the formula that Blumhouse has done with other familiar IP. In some cases it’s sort of worked and most others, at least for me, it hasn’t. Their formula appears to be business savvy in the current moviegoer climate: lower budget (single digit millions), remake/reboot familiar IP, often incorporating social themes.

This leaves my anticipation for this film pretty low overall. I’m not close-minded to it being entertaining, I hope that every film I see — regardless of the director, producers, actors involved, trailer or story info — is something I’ll enjoy.

Anticipation: 2/10

Are you looking forward to seeing The Invisible Man (2020)? Let’s discuss in the comments below.

There is one other bonus movie screening, LIMITED release, that I haven’t profiled here yet, Impractical Jokers: The Movie. I’m planning on seeing this, although i really know nothing about it. It’s from TruTV and Funny or Die and sort of just dropped in. It’s only showing in two local Regal Cinemas theaters near us. Anybody else reading seen this movie? What do you know about it?

Next week, there are three movies according to Box Office Mojo being wide released: Onward [FIRST LOOK], The Way Back [FIRST LOOK] and First Cow from A24. We will be in Las Vegas and screening Onward, hopefully, in 4DX.

FIRST LOOK: The Invisible Man (2020)

H.G Wells is best known for The Time Machine, but he also penned other popular works like The Invisible Man.

Blumhouse is not-so-quietly making a business out of licensing and rebooting older TV and movie properties (see Fantasy Island [FIRST LOOK] being marketed as “Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island”), usually with a modern horror slant. Enter Claude Rains, er, no, some other actor (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) as the man who nobody can see, Adrian Griffin.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) 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 (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), 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.

February 2020 Movies

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn)
[FIRST LOOK]

Birds of Prey official trailer – opening in theaters in February 7, 2020

I didn’t know anything about Harley Quinn until seeing the trailer for this movie in the theater. Didn’t know she was Joker’s girlfriend. Didn’t even know she was a comic book villain. Since that time a couple months ago, I subscribed to DC Universe, started following — and liking very much — her animated TV show and am reviewing all season one episodes as they’re released every Friday. I’m also starting to read her comic books.

Also learned that there was a single season (13 episodes) Birds of Prey TV series — and Harley Quinn was in it — that’s also available on DC Universe. Plan to watch at least some of that, too. Maybe the entire series if it’s really good. This movie, bearing the title, could be more about that group than just Harley Quinn, as it shares the title. I would have been just fine with a Harley Quinn movie by itself, but OK.

Anyway, my anticipation for this movie has increased exponentially. I haven’t seen the movie Suicide Squad, which is the first feature film to include Harley Quinn, but the reviews I’ve come across were unfavorable. Am sure I’ll see that at some point, but probably not before this opens wide in theaters Feb 7, 2020.

Anticipation for Birds of Prey : 9/10

Peter Rabbit 2
RELEASE DATE CHANGED from Feb 7, 2020 to April 3, 2020

Peter Rabbit 2 official trailer – opening in theaters April 3, 2020

Haven’t seen the first Peter Rabbit film, but this seems like it’s in that middleworld between children-friendly and adults. Trailer isn’t making me super excited for the movie. Was surprised to see it grossed over $350 million, which explains the presence of this sequel less than two years later.

Anticipation for Peter Rabbit 2 is: 2/10

Fantasy Island
[FIRST LOOK]

Fantasy Island official trailer – opening in theaters February 14, 2020

After seeing what Blumhouse did with Black Christmas⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’m less excited about what they will do here. Also, as lamented (several times), Fantasy Island without Tattoo is missing something important. This is still a movie I’m looking forward to watching. Just hope they don’t make it some cheesy, jumpscare-laden horror comedy. I would like something darker and scarier, feeding into the macabre and yet moral tales of the original TV series. If they lean that direction and execute, I could end up a huge fan.

Anticipation for Fantasy Island: 7/10

The King’s Man
RELEASE DATE CHANGED from Feb 14 to September 18, 2020

The King’s Man official trailer #1 – opening in theaters September 18, 2020
The King’s Man official trailer #2 – opening in theaters September 18, 2020

Am getting a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen vibe from these trailers. I know it’s not the same thing, but that movie left me feeling cold to films like these. This one could pull me out of this funk … if it doesn’t suck.

Anticipation for The King’s Man: 3/10

The Photograph
[FIRST LOOK]

The Photograph official trailer – opening in theaters February 14, 2020

Trailer makes this seem as mostly a romance which is fitting for Valentine’s Day release, but other than the woman trying to explore her mother through the photographs left behind doesn’t seem to have an otherwise compelling story. It could surprise me though.Timing is good.

Anticipation for The Photograph: 3/10

Sonic The Hedgehog
[FIRST LOOK]

Sonic The Hedgehog official trailer – opening in theaters February 14, 2020

This was my most anticipated movie of February, up there with Fantasy Island, but now Harley Quinn edges them both out. I’m still excited about seeing how the speedy videogame character tears through the film, also Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik looks like a fun bad guy.

Anticipation for Sonic The Hedgehog: 8/10

What About Love
RELEASE DATE CHANGED from Feb 14 to September 25, 2020

Sharon Stone in a supporting role it appears. No official trailer yet as of 1/1/2020, so nothing more to go on except for the Wikipedia page. I’m leery of digging too deep into that page before seeing the movie.

No trailer, no anticipation.

Bloodshot
RELEASE DATE CHANGED from Feb 21 to March 13, 2020

Bloodshot official trailer – opening in theaters March 13, 2020

Have been a fan of Vin Diesel in action, notably the Fast & Furious franchise, so curious how he works this one through.

Anticipation for Bloodshot 4/10

The Call of the Wild
[FIRST LOOK]

The Call of the Wild official trailer – opening in theaters February 21, 2020

Sad to see Harrison Ford – Han freaking Solo – so weathered and old. I know, I know, happens to all of us, but Harrison Ford in a dog movie? Yeah, it’s based on an awesome novel but I’m not sure about the casting here.

Anticipation for The Call of the Wild: 4/10

Emma
[FIRST LOOK]

Emma official trailer – opening in theaters February 21, 2020

Based on the Jane Austen novel and very little interest in seeing. Less than I did going into Little Women, but then that movie was a delightful surprise. Maybe this one will be too.

Anticipation for Emma: 1/10

Las Pildoras de Mi Novio (My Boyfriend’s Meds)
[FIRST LOOK]

Las Pildoras de Mi Novio (My Boyfriend’s Meds) official trailer – opening in theaters February 21, 2020

LOL! The boyfriend forgot his meds?! Trailer is pretty funny. I don’t know if it’s all subtitled, but don’t really care, it’s got me curious what exactly happens when this guy is fully off his meds?

Anticipation for Las Pildoras de Mi Novio 5/10

Bad Trip
RELEASE DATE CHANGED from Feb 28 to April 24, 2020

Bad Trip official trailer – opening in theaters February 24, 2020

Looks like reality TV gone wild. Sign me up! Will admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of reality TV, but there have been some shows (I liked Cops,The Osbournes and Gene Simmons Family Jewels and some others). The whole catch the audience real reactions to crazy scenes is often too gimmicky to hold my interest through a TV series, but in a movie maybe it will work. This one looks like it could be very funny, I just hope the trailer isn’t showing the best parts.

Anticipation for Bad Trip: 6/10

Burden
[FIRST LOOK]

Burden official trailer – opening in theaters February 28, 2020

Fighting the KKK based on a true story and more modern times (1996, not 1969!), seems like this has potential to be a powerful story. Forest Whitaker!

Anticipation for Burden: 5/10

The Invisible Man
[FIRST LOOK]

The Invisible Man official trailer – opening in theaters February 28, 2020

Boy, this is going to be a tough reboot sell for me. I consider the original Universal monster movies virtually untouchable. That includes the amazing Claude Rains as The Invisible Man. Here, it’s another Blumhouse production, which on the positive side means it won’t be filled with a bunch of crazy expensive CGI, but will this be a fresh take or bad reboot? Curious, but cautious.

Anticipation for The Invisible Man: 5/10

The Whistlers

The Whistlers official trailer

Has great blurbs. If a movie trailer relies on blurbs, I’m almost instantly suspicious. Show me how good it is in the trailer, not with a bunch of quotes in the trailer telling me how great it is. Don’t know about this one.

Anticipation for The Whistlers: 2/10

What movies in February 2020 are you looking forward to seeing?

Classic Scares + October 2019 Horror Challenge Completed

ROKU Hallowee-themed design in 2019

Any serious overall “best of” list of horror that omits at least some classic films is lacking. Claude Rains in The Invisible Man . Boris Karloff as Frankenstein. Lon Chaney Jr. magical transformation in The Wolfman. Bela Lugosi as Dracula. My oh my these monster movies are fantastic! I’m sure there are some people who watch and think, “I’d rather watch Saw!” or “Where is the gore?” but when you are scared with little to no blood and gore, that is very much horror, too.

Other horror classification posts in October 2019 include:

Next Halloween there are many other types that will be interesting to explore along with films that fit these subgenres.

October 2019 Challenge — Completed the challenge on 10/26/2019, but kept adding on movies after that.

GOAL: Watch and review 66+ horror films

This was a little more challenging mentally — but a lot of fun — than I thought it would be at the first of the month watching that many horror films. October is a great month every year which culminates in my second favorite holiday: Halloween!

Roku has some nice Halloween-themed decorations (pictured at top of this post). Also like how Letterboxd, made the raining blood logo:

There are plenty of horror movies I didn’t watch this year, so stay tuned in Halloween 2020 and beyond. A bunch more Stephen King films, including The Shining., The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, The Omen, Nightmare on Elm Street, more of the Universal horror movies (Frankenstein, Dracula, etc) and the horror list goes on and on. It will take years to rewatch them all, plus they are adding new ones every year.

So, if I missed reviewing some of your personal horror favorites, please let me know in the comments what else you’d like me to watch (or rewatch if I’ve already seen). I’ve probably seen more than a 1,000 horror movies in my lifetime so far (25 horror years times 40 years = 1,000 movies, and I know I’ve watched more than an average of 25 horror movies every year).

Happy Halloween to al1!
