  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
    • Excerpt: The newest adaptation of the H.G. Wells’ novel works on nearly all levels but does not quite land the ending.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Leigh Whannell aces adapting H.G. Wells’ nineteenth century novel for the modern #MeToo age as a paranoid thriller, low budget effects à la “Paranormal Activity” effecting big chills, Elizabeth Moss excelling as a woman with only herself to turn to.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Even when the film reaches certian places that feels contrived or silly, you’re still invested in the characters, you’re still compelled by the narrative, and you’re still thrilled by the set pieces. It’s thoughtful, slick, fun, and delivers everything you’d want in a crowd-pleaser horror film.
  • James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘The Invisible Man’ is a terrifying update to the classic Universal horror narrative, creating an intense atmosphere that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as they search for what can’t be seen.
  • [New] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: It has been a while since such a well crafted crafted opening scene grabbed my attention so quickly.
  • Brent McKnight @ Giant Freakin’ Robot
    • Excerpt: Harrowing and resourceful, using ingenuity and imagination rather than unlimited funds, Leigh Whannell skillfully constructs a tight, terrifying horror film.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: Wanna see a magic trick? Because writer-director Leigh Whannell, screenwriter of Saw, has evolved into a proper illusionist with his old school yet radical retelling of The Invisible Man.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The fight choreography and special effects are flawless, but they’re nothing but aesthetic bells and whistles without Moss giving them substantive purpose via her performance.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: The Invisible Man has done well to reveal some positive light on this dark universe.
