Writer-director Leigh Whannell takes the basis of H.G. Wells' 1897 novel of "The Invisible Man" and gives it a Hitchcockian-like psychological horror-thriller spin made relevant for today's #MeToo era.

It's more than meets the eye, in all the best ways.

Neither as misanthropic nor maniacal as the original, this update finds a happy medium between entropy and empathy. It's the right ground to claim for a shrewd, sleek and truly scary story that knows trauma can't be erased but it can be empowering.

There's a lot more to think about than a typical horror film. It's a real psychological thriller...a good strong film, not SCARY scary, but it gets in your head.

Ultimately, The Invisible Man makes for a pacey, if mostly predictable, reimagining of a classic Hollywood horror terror.

[Elizabeth Moss is] amazing and she does so much just with her eyes. It's a really demanding role physically [and] emotionally; it's a huge range she has to play.

Whannell is brilliant at distracting us with amusing, knowing dialogue (siblings are rivalrous; architects are trendy; waiters are irksomely urbane). Death comes when you least expect it.

A bracingly modern #MeToo allegory that, despite its brutal craft, rings hollow.

A smart, unexpected delight.

The Invisible Man is one of those rare films that remakes an age old horror film successfully for modern audiences. I won't go into spoilers here, but this is a great horror film. They manage to twist the narrative onto the woman and her struggles to survive a violent relationship. This is relevant in so many areas and the filmmaker has started to find his feet with Blumhouse. Insidious Chapter 3 was a tough act to follow after James Wan, but Upgrade and now The Invisible Man are giant leaps forward. Consider the budget of these films are much lower and allow for creativity and lower studio interference. This is one reboot that works and establishes itself with topical subjects of our era. A must-see.
