 The Invisible Man is directed by Leigh Whannell and stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. The plot of the movie is when Cecilia's abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her his fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of coincidences turn lethal, Cecilia works to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. I loved this movie. Elisabeth Moss is fantastic. She needs to carry this movie on her shoulders she not only needs to make us believe that she's being tortured by this invisible ex-boyfriend of hers, but she needs to make us believe that she's been in an abusive relationship before the movie even starts. She is able to pull that off from the first scene. From the first shot, you realize this is a woman who needs to get out of this situation and Moss sells every second of this movie. You feel the torture, you feel that anguish inside her, you feel how she is constantly paranoid and how she has PTSD from this relationship and how it is affecting her in the present.    Leigh Whannell did a wonderful job directing this movie. He really knows how to tell a gripping and compelling story What I really love that Whannell does here is he is not only creating so much tension throughout the course of the movie he has these really great slow deliberate camera movements that really build up the tension and suspense and really plays into the horror of it all, but he's able to tell this compelling story about abuse. The action sequences in this movie are really well done, really well staged, and beautifully shot. There's some great camera work that makes you feel more immersed in the action.    This is a really intense horror movie, it's really well directed, it's beautiful looking, and it has a fantastic lead performance by Elisabeth Moss.   5 out of 5 stars for The Invisible Man. I hope you enjoyed my review.
