Elizabeth Moss known to play “June” in the hit television series “The Handmaids Tale” Takes the screen as Cecilia Kass (Moss). Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and narcissistic sociopath scientist, Cecila escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding with the aid of her sister. However 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 eventually learns that her exes death was a hoax.

As the story unfolds in a series of eerie coincidences, the lives of Cecilia’s loved ones are at risk. Cecilia’s sanity is also questioned as shes desperately trying to prove that she is being stalked/hunted by someone nobody can see. As it goes, horror is a tough genre to crack within the film industry. It is a movie designed to make audiences active participants in a spine tingling game of tension with its slow build ups. “The Invisible Man” uses some awesome special affects to ensure audiences were nail biting and on the edges of their seats.

The initial premise of the story opens up to be a promising start. However falls a little short with some long winded scenes. With that being said don’t let this stop you, the movie offers up some scare tactics to quicken the heart ensuring you’ll be laughing with your nerves by the end.
