Review: The Invisible Man (2020)
This is a remake, so I can’t say it is wholly original, but it is not just a rehashing of the old premise. It is a re-imagining.
The character work here is amazing, the villain well-realized, terrifying, and interesting.
This film works in 2020 amazingly-well. The horror here is in the toxic-masculinity relationship the protagonist has with the villain. The whole thing works as an allegory for these sorts of relationships. Cycles of violence, domestic violence, grooming, stalking, women not being believed… it works as a superlative example of feminist horror.
It also is just downright well-acted, written, and produced.
