Brief Synopsis – A woman in an abusive marriage thinks she is free after her husband commits suicide, but strange things begin to happen that make her question whether he has come back as a ghost to haunt her.
My Take on it – I’m a fan of the way that films try to modernize and update classic tales.
This film takes the idea of the Invisible man and finds a way to adapt it to the time we live in.
The films does a great job keeping things feeling realistic and plausible the whole way through especially given the fact that it’s a horror/thriller.
Love the way that they are able to utilize modern technology within the story in order to keep things so believable the whole way through.
Elisabeth Moss is great in the lead role and manages to make us care so much about everything that happens to her along the way.
This movie has some great twists and turns along the way that help keep things so fascinating to watch unfold because it constantly keeps the viewer on their toes since it doesn’t follow a generic path while also keeping things very unpredictable which enhances things so much.
Bottom Line – Very intriguing thriller that is able to take a classic tale and modernize it in a very believable and realistic way. The film utilizes methods to make things quite plausible. Moss does an amazing job in the lead role and makes us really care about everything that happens to her. The story is filled with some fascinating twists and turns along the way that help keep things quite mysterious and that allows the viewer to constantly try and guess what is truly going on. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film was originally going to be a part of the Dark Universe, with Johnny Depp starring as the titular character, and Ed Solomon writing the screenplay, but changes were made to the Dark Universe to focus on individual storytelling and moving on from the shared universe concept after the box office failure of The Mummy (2017), which itself was an attempt to reboot the Dark Universe after the box office disappointment of Dracula Untold (2014).

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
