The invisible man, the new version of the classic horror movie monster, differs from the story that H.G. Wells wrote in the year 1933 in a key aspect: the method in which the invisible man becomes, that same, invisible. In the pages of the English writer, he does this through a series of chemical substances. In the film directed by Leigh Whannell (Upgrade), on the other hand, the character played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Curse of Hill House) acquires this ability through technology.
Undoubtedly, this change brings the viewer of the 21st century to a mechanism of invisibility that does not seem quite crazy and quite plausible, right? Well, that is precisely what some scientists told Whannell about his version.
“I talked to some scientists and they told me it was plausible and possible,” begins the director at ReelBlend. “It’s amazing what cameras can do and, to be honest, I don’t think they’re so far apart. I don’t think there’s a big gap between an application on your phone that can change your appearance, face or age or remove objects from a room and to be able to do that. I felt very liberating to make this film, to use technology to make it more real. I wanted to make it more realistic. I wanted to get away from the idea that it was a serum or potion, from those more retro or gothic ideas. “, he added.
Do you agree with what Whannell says? The invisible man has raised more than 50 million dollars worldwide. The film has in its cast Elisabeth Moss (The Maid’s Tale), Storm Reid (Euphoria), Aldis Hodge (Clemency) and Michael Dorman (Patriot); among others. On these lines, do not miss the trailer.
The main character this time was Cecilia Kass (in this role Elisabeth Moss known for, among others, “The Handmaid’s Tale”), who lives with a very aggressive man. One day she receives a message that Adrian committed suicide and a woman is scooping up a large inheritance. There is only one condition – Kass cannot be considered insane.
