The Invisible Man
Want to Watch Something Really Deranged?
If you, like me, have spent the week watching Love Is Blind and want to rehabilitate your melted brain with something slightly - just slightly - less deranged, I'd recommend going to see The Invisible Man.
The Invisible Man is a horror-thriller from Universal starring Elisabeth Moss as Cecilia, "C," a woman who escapes her abusive boyfriend Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) only to find out that Adrian, "a leader in the field of optics" who supposedly died by suicide early in the film, is actually still alive, and has designed a suit that makes him completely invisible... thecut.com
The Invisible Man - Plot
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.
Rated MA15+ for some strong bloody violence, and language.

Review LEIGH PAATSCH | heraldsun.com.au
What we have here is a very pleasing unpleasant surprise. Against all odds, one of the oldest thriller concepts on Hollywood's books gets a riveting modern refresh in the fear-inducing form of The Invisible Man.
With the retooling into a sleek, efficient and deceptively intimidating thriller comes a contemporary relevance few would have seen coming, especially in a movie with a villain you will never see coming.
Elisabeth Moss convincingly anchors proceedings as Cecilia, a former architect whose life has been demolished and redesigned by a controlling, conniving husband.
After escaping from his clammy clutches and establishing a new life, Cecilia gets word her tormentor is dead. However, the inkling he is not quite done with her yet never quite goes away.
Though the movie can stretch credibility beyond breaking point, a fearless, up-foranything performance by Moss prevents everything from snapping.
Some commentary by stealth on toxic relationships raises the stakes and collects handsomely.
