The Invisible Man
1/1 · Por HBO
An astonishing adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic. The Invisible Man brings us a suspenseful story about physical and psychological abuse.
The Invisible Man comes to HBO. Watch the new film adaptation of the horror classic inspired by the H. G. Wells novel, directed by Leigh Whannell and starring Elisabeth Moss.
After escaping from a stormy relationship with successful optical engineer Adrian Griffin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) hides at the house of her friend James (Aldis Hodge). Some weeks later, Cecilia receives news of the suicide of Adrian, who has left her five million dollars in her will. After meeting with Tom (Michael Dorman), Adrian's brother and lawyer, Cecilia begins to experience strange, more or less inexplicable situations. Little by little, Cecilia begins to suspect not only that Adrian has faked his death but that he has also completed his life's work and has found a way to become invisible. With no one to believe her, Cecilia must endure increasingly dangerous and horrifying situations and find a way to deal with a stalker that she can't even know is real.
Numerous films and series have been made after Wells’ novel. The invisible man character has become a recurring figure in popular culture in the 20th and 21st centuries. This latest film adaptation does not reproduce the original story of the novel but takes some of its elements as inspiration to imagine a very effective horror story. The performance of Elisabeth Moss, whose talent is undoubted since her roles in the Mad Men and The Handmaid's Tale, shocks us with despair and permanent anguish.
The Invisible Man is a horror film with science fiction and thriller elements. It is a film made with mastery by its director, crew and actors. As a horror movie it is undoubtedly effective. When was the last time that, after watching a horror movie, at night of course, you had a hard time sleeping, or felt, even for a shameful moment, a little scared to leave your room? Can you, aided by reason, avoid the sudden thought, the irrational suspicion, that right there, in your bedroom’s corner, the invisible man may be watching you at all times?
