The first reactions to director Leigh Whannell’s new take on The Invisible Man are lauding the filmmaker as a “full blown master of horror”.

Some critics in the USA have had the chance to catch an early preview of the movie and, according to them, it’s “incredible” and “a masterclass in tension and terror”.

If the early buzz is to be believed, Upgrade director and Saw co-creator Whannell has produced something truly special.

#TheInvisibleMan is a terrifying masterpiece of futuristic horror noir brilliantly directed by #LeighWhannell .@elisabethmossofficial is outstanding in this one (like always)! You’ll FEEL every second of her claustrophobic fear and dread until the absolute last frame. #BenjaminWallfisch ‘s score for @theinvisiblemanmovie is already a contender for best score of 2020. You are not going to be able to let this one go for a LONG time. What an experience... (look for my spoiler review/set visit experience on my YT channel on Feb 25th!)

The Invisible Man is tension filled thrill-ride from start to finish. Leigh Whannell perfectly updates the 1933 classic for modern times as Elizabeth Moss delivers a haunting & captivating performance that is amongst some of her finest work to date. #TheInvisibleMan is intense

Wow: #TheInvisibleMan elevates @LWhannell to a full blown master of horror. Beautifully written, impeccably shot and some of the most suffocating moments of genuine terror you’ll ever experience.

WOW did I LOVE @LWhannell’s #TheInvisibleMan! It floored me. A spine-tingling modern horror classic in the making. Poignant & timely packed full of edge of your seat anxiety inducing suspense! Sound & production design are MASSIVE standouts but Elizabeth Moss OWNS this film.

Brief thoughts (since I've seen some others talking about it): W/#TheInvisibleMan, Leigh Whannell has crafted a masterclass in tension and terror, and I think my jaw was left on the floor at least twice. Completely thrilling, visceral and emotional.

My review of #TheInvisibleMan

?I needed to pee the entire film but couldn't move. Then got home and was convinced an invisible entity was standing in the corner watching me. It's *that* great. Incredible script, direction and Moss is

THE INVISIBLE MAN was fricking unreal. I loved every god damn second of that film even when it had me breathless at the edge of my seat. Leigh Whannell also came by afterwards to chat about the movie and left this lovely message on my poster

#TheInvisibleMan is a truly sinister, refreshingly modern take on H.G. Wells’ story! Grounded by horrific reality, I loved every minute @LWhannell got under our skin. From his incredible directing/writing + haunting performance by Moss, this is a prime example of elevated horror.


quote:

Jonathan J Spiroff
@jonjspiroff

With #TheInvisibleMan @LWhannell has crafted the most suspenseful horror film since #GetOut in 2017.

Brilliantly staged, with a constant sense of anxiety and paranoia.

This is the definitive version of The Invisible Man story, and one you do not want spoiled. See it ASAP.


quote:

?Grant Hermanns
@grantheftautho

#TheInvisibleMan is one of the best horror films in years and @LWhannell has set the bar high for the rest of the year. It’s tense from start to finish in the same vein as a Hitchcock masterpiece. I seriously can’t recommend this movie enough, I plan to see it multiple times!



quote:

?Rosie Knight
@RosieMarx

#TheInvisibleMan worked for me on a very visceral level. It's weird, sparse, and really fricking scary. As a survivor of abuse it was a new kind of horrifying that felt relatable to my experiences but ultimately cathartic.

Friends. Acquaintances. Strangers of the Twitterverse. PLEASE go see this movie when it comes out. I am embargoed, I can’t say much. It is patient & purposeful in its storytelling, REALLY earns all of its big moments, Elizabeth Moss is incredible. #TheInvisibleMan



I hope this film is great. I'm pulling for the dark universe to succeed.

Hmm. I can't say the previews blew me away, but movies that rely on suspense usually don't have crazy gripping trailers.

What’s suspenseful when there’s no mystery? They gave away everything in the trailer. It’s have been better had they not and then gone with the crazy angle.

I really liked the first trailer released. Psychological horror and supernatural horror films are both undergoing a renaissance of sorts.

I thought dark universe is dead and they just finished this because it was already in production?

The studio is now pushing forward with a series of director-driven - and more cost efficient - reboots instead, beginning with Blumhouse and Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man later this month. Among the other Universal monster projects currently in development are a film about Dracula's henchman R.M. Renfield from Rocketmanhelmsman Dexter Fletcher and Paul Feig's mysterious Dark Army movie. In the past, however, it's been indicated the studio is still willing to revisit the movies they had planned for the Dark Universe. Matter of fact, they're working on getting Bride of Frankenstein up and going right now.

You can see some of that Upgrade style camera movement in the trailer for this.

No doubt, this has potential.

Could be awesome in theaters if done right.

The commercial I just saw for it made me audibly laugh at how lame and cheesy it looked.

i don't know what the backstory is between the invisible dude and Elizabeth Moss. Seems like he is tormenting and harassing her. Were they a couple?

She seems like a whole lot of PLAIN for an invisible dude to be going through all that trouble.

Pretty sure shes his wife, but hes crazy so she leaves him.

He fakes his death and leaves his wealth to her as long as she passes a psych eval, and he fricks with her so she wont pass.

The first reactions give me some hope that there's a deeper level the movie gets to than what you see in the trailer.

That's what didn't really grip me with the trailer. You see what seems to be the whole plot and it sort of looks by the numbers. Maybe it actually goes deeper or gives you a better psychological buildup than it seems like it would.

Think Sleeping With The Enemy but the dude's invisible.

It's gonna be a shitty Lifetime movie.

Watch Grace Randolph go and say that this movie is terrible, and you people go and say that it is Oscar worthy, just to spite her, despite the fact that yeah, it’s probably terrible
