Universal’s remake of The Invisible Man, directed by Aussie Leigh Whannell and starring Elisabeth Moss is now available to stream on-demand. With the COVID-19 pandemic changing the way people live their lives and leave their houses, many films are being pushed to streaming and home release much sooner than they normally would.
The Invisible Man is one of these films. Filmed in and around Sydney, this reimagining casts the titular character as a monstrous, torturous abusive ex-boyfriend who will stop at nothing to ruin Cecillia Kass’ (Moss) life.
The Invisible Man
The film’s synopsis is;
What you can’t see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character. 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 (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) 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.
