'The Invisible Man' (2020) Review

'The Invisible Man' (2020) Review
One of the Best Studio Horror Films in Years

Rating: ★★★★½

For the most part Blumhouse releases bland, disposable and forgettable horror films, 'The Invisible Man' (2020) isn't one of those films.
The opening scene, which follows Cecilia escaping her narcissistic and psychotic Mark Zuckerberg-esque tech billionaire boyfriend, perfectly captures the slow-burn pacing and tense tone that'll follow. 
A movie in which the physical embodiment of abuse and trauma is the antagonist, Leigh Whannell has crafted one of the smartest and scariest horror films in recent memory.
Expanding upon his filmmaking techniques used in the 2018 sleeper hit 'Upgrade', the creative ways cinematography is used throughout the film is genius and the writing is both excellent and thoroughly constructed.
With an incredible lead performance from Elisabeth Moss, a chilling depiction of the titular movie monster by Oliver Jackson-Cohen, a twisty action-packed third act and tenseful scenes that'll keep you on the edge of your seat, 'The Invisible Man' (2020) is a must-watch for horror fans but the portrayal of domestic abuse and the trauma caused by it may be too confronting for some.
