From its realistic emotional trauma to its cutting-edge technology, we take a close look at The Invisible Man (2020) on a new episode of Corpse Club!
On this episode of Corpse Club, we focus on the latest entry to the classic world of Universal Monsters with a spoiler-filled discussion of Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man. Listen as co-hosts Scott Drebit, Tamika Jones, Bryan Christopher, and Derek Anderson discuss the latest adaptation of H.G. Wells' 1897 novel, from its harrowing reflections of real-world gaslighting and its unsettling depiction of an abusive relationship to its masterful direction by Whannell and powerful, empathetic lead performance by Elisabeth Moss.
The co-hosts also discuss James Whale's The Invisible Man (1933) and how it differs from the latest adaptation of Wells' novel, and they talk about the potential cinematic future of the Universal Monsters and what they'd like to see next from Whannell, who has signed a first-look deal with Blumhouse. So, after you check the attic and make sure no one is sitting in the empty chair next to you, sit back, relax, and enjoy another episode of Corpse Club!
