Saw writer Leigh Whannell stepped out of his friend James Wan’s shadow and into genre-movie glory with 2018's Upgrade, a film whose low-budget ingenuity left The A.V. Club wondering—what would happen if Whannell got some blockbuster cash? With a reported budget of $9 million, The Invisible Man is hardly a tentpole release, but it does launch Whannell into the major-studio realm by reinventing James Whale’s 1933 Universal Horror classic for our age. And we can’t wait to check it out.
If you’re similarly stoked to see Elisabeth Moss tortured by her abusive mad-scientist ex—and you live in Chicago—then you’re in luck: We’re sponsoring an advance screening of The Invisible Man on Tuesday, February 25 at 7:30 PM at our usual haunt (no pun intended) of the AMC River East.
