Official Synopsis for Blumhouse’s INVISIBLE MAN Remake Reveals Ghostly Twists

When plot details began to emerge for Blumhouse’s Invisible Man remake (directed by Leigh Whannell) last May, it sounded to me like they would be employing some supernatural horror tropes. Here’s what we already knew about the film:

“The film follows Cecilia (Elizabeth Moss), who receives the news of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s suicide. She begins to rebuild her life for the better. However, her sense of reality is put into question when she begins to suspect her deceased lover is not actually dead.”

To be clear, it doesn’t sound like a supernatural horror movie, but it does sound like Cecilia will suspect ghostly encounters before learning of her ex-boyfriend’s scientific invisibility. Today, we’ve finally got an official synopsis for Blumhouse’s Invisible Man, one that helps paint a more complete picture of what’s in store.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Look for The Invisible Man to materialize in US theaters beginning March 13th, 2020.
