What you can’t see will hurt you. Universal Pictures have unleashed the first Trailer of their Dark Universe series with The Invisible Man. Elisabeth Moss stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.
Moss stars as Cecilia Kass, who finds herself trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). With help of friends she escapes but finds herself been tormented by the unseen. Can she prove what hunts her is her recently deceased abusive boyfriend?
Leigh Whannell (Upgrade, Saw) directs, Blumhouse produces the 21st Century retelling of the classic HG Wells novel. The classic monsters universe didn’t get off to the best of starts with The Mummy. Johnny Depp was originally connected to play in this film that plan didn’t work either. Now with Jason Blum’s production house has transformed horror genre, making this project a lot more interesting and gripping.
Whannell wanted something modern and grounded, he certainly looks like he’s hit the jackpot. Throw in an abusive toxic relationship, we have a modern day horror that resonates on every level.
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
The Invisible Man will arrive in UK & Irish Cinemas from 28th February 2020. The film also stars Harriet Dyer, Aldis Hodge, and Storm Reid.
