Do you know when you have that good feeling for the film you're about to watch? Yeah, that one. Well, that's exactly the feeling I had when I saw 'The Invisible Man', and I'm glad because the feeling was right. This is one of the best horror films I have ever seen. It really stays true to the genre. The slow introduction to the plot in the film is executed perfectly, and it left me on edge until something scary happened. There are phenomenally times jump scares throughout, with the best element being the whole point of the film - playing on what you can't see. The scariest thing about this film is the harshness of acceptance too. People were quick to judge Elisabeth Moss's character for claiming to be harassed by an invisible man. Even when she was right, people were still reluctant. She even warns that "I wouldn't be able to see him" when talking about the threat from this character. In my opinion, this is one of the best horror films released in the past decade, it is as traditional yet modern as they get. I hope that more films in the genre take notes from this, it is definitely one to watch again. Without spoiling anything, there is certainly more to the film than first anticipated, with subtle references to its history too. This is a horror masterpiece!
