Universal Pictures

Elisabeth Moss stars in the new thriller “The Invisible Man.”

This week, “The Invisible Man,” a contemporary adaptation of the famed H.G. Wells novel and reboot of the film series, hits theaters. Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, the horror film stars Elisabeth Moss, Addis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriett Dyer and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the title character.

According to the synopsis, Cecilia Kass, played by Moss, escapes from a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist literally in the dead of night and disappears with the aid of her sister (Dyer), a childhood friend (Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Reid). However, when Cecilia’s ex commits suicide, he leaves a generous portion of his fortune to her, prompting Cecilia to question whether he is really dead. As a series of coincidences turns deadly, putting in danger all the people she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she seeks to prove she is being hunted by someone no one can see.
