    16 "The Invisible Man" Twitter Reactions That Prove It's One Of The Most Disturbing Movies Of The Year

    "It kept me on the edge of my seat."

    Ever since The Invisible Man hit theaters on Feb. 28, fans of the film have not been able to keep quiet about it. That includes me!

    Universal Pictures

    The film is a contemporary adaptation of H.G. Wells' book of the same name and a reboot of The Invisible Man film franchise from the 1930s.

    The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, and Harriet Dyer. Here's a quick rundown of what the film's about:

    After staging his own suicide, Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), who just so happens to be a ridiculously rich optics scientist, creates an invisibility suit to terrorize Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss). When the police (Aldis Hodge) refuse to believe that an invisible man is torturing her, she decides to take matters into her own hands and fight back.

    Psychological thrillers sit at the top of the list of my favorite movie genres as well as book genres — plus, Elisabeth has YET to disappoint me in any of her performances — so let's just say my expectations were high.

    Well, one uncontrollable gasp and four jumps later, I can proudly say this movie ticked all the right sinister boxes. This face alone made my skin crawl.

    Actually, that entire restaurant scene had the whole audience on edge, because from that moment on, ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE!

    From Elisabeth's chilling performance to the hidden subliminal messages, The Invisible Man deserves all the praise.

    But I'm not the only one feeling this way. Here's what some people on Twitter had to say:

    THE INVISIBLE MAN is suspenseful and smart, tackling timely themes with genre ingenuity. Whannell cleverly updates Wells' original for #MeToo; nothing is more dangerous, or scary, to a woman than a white man whose power is implicit & unchallenged. Elizabeth Moss is AMAZING.

    The Invisible Man is awesome. Elizabeth Moss destroyed. Bravo @LWhannell 👌🏾

    Me throughout watching The invisible man

    The Invisible Man was the most fun I’ve had watching a horror film in some time. Precision, intense filmmaking from @LWhannell anchored by an incredible performance from Elisabeth Moss.

    I thought #TheInvisibleMan was tremendous! Every step of the way, I was more & more impressed. Loved what caused invisibility but the reinvention of the story was a so damn smart across the boards. Give awards to #ElisabethMoss now for what’s largely a one woman show. Go see it!

    THE INVISIBLE MAN. MY REACTION TO THAT RESTAURANT SCENE!!!!

    The Invisible Man does what today’s best thrillers must. It takes the genre’s scaffolding and builds social commentary around it. Get Out. Parasite. Here, Leigh Whannell provides some of the most gripping, metaphorical story on the way domestic violence survivors are haunted.

    Saw THE INVISIBLE MAN last night in a theater filled with people who would NOT shut the fuck up as the flick started. 90 seconds later you could hear a pin drop, the audience invested in the INSTANT CINEMATIC SUSPENSE unfolding that did NOT let up. SEE IT BIG, AND LOUD.

    The Invisible Man was so good, it had my ass like this the whole time

    The Invisible Man (2020) 9.5/10 I screamed a lot and I don't usually scream when watching movies. Kept me on the edge of my seat, excellent cast, brilliant acting, jaw-dropping plot twists, Elisabeth Moss is captivating as usual. A must watch. Trigger warning: domestic abuse.

    @ScottWamplerBMD #TheInvisibleMan is scary in a way no other horror movie in recent memory is scary. The super long-held shots of empty space were so nerve-wracking, and constantly assuming he could be in the room just bothered me. A+++ suspense. I was jumpy all night after seeing it.

    Me looking for the invisible man in every shot even though he’s INVISIBLE

    So I went to see The Invisible Man today and all I can say is Elisabeth Moss is so fucking talented. I don’t usually like movies like this & I only went because I love her so much in Mad Men, but wow...what a powerhouse performance. Give her all the awards please and thank you.

    the invisible man isn’t just a great horror film but one of the most viscerally upsetting, cathartic depictions of domestic abuse and the gaslighting and alienation survivors experience i’ve ever seen.elisabeth’s one of our best living actors but can she PLEASE do a romcom or s/t

    Many have called THE INVISIBLE MAN intense, unsettling, and nerve-racking. And that Elisabeth Moss is incredible. And all of THOSE people... are 100% correct.

    There's a reason why The Invisible Man is the number one movie in the country right now. So if you haven't already, run to the nearest movie theater to see it.
