The Invisible Man (2020)

dir. Leigh Whannell. Some genuinely scary moments, cheapened slightly by the jump-scare sound cues. The extended moments of silence build real suspense, and the movie is best when it lingers, and lets your eyes search the screen for hints of movement. Some annoying frustrating pot-holes and turns. Elisabeth Moss does sane woman in a mad world very well. It never gets to the imaginative heights or psychology of the 1933 Claude Rains film, and becomes more action than thriller.
