The Invisible Man

Release date: February 24, 2020, now streaming

Starring: Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, Oliver Jackson-Cohen

Why it’s a big deal: There have been some bad versions of The Invisible Man (Kevin Bacon, I love you, but NO). Unlike many of them, this film only pulls its concept from H.G. Wells’ novels, but it gives it a modern punch…pun intended. A woman flees her abusive husband, who’s an expert in optics. He seemingly kills himself…or is he somehow stalking her, invisible? I mean, you may know the answer already, judging by the trailer. But seriously: You should watch this. It’s so harrowing—I was screaming into a pillow for a good chunk of it—and it has a lot of relevant stuff to say about gaslighting and trauma. The creators actually won’t say how they did some of the special effects, so (like Moss) we can never totally be sure what’s happening. It makes it a unique and terrifying watch.
