Entertainment Weekly has released three new photos from the Invisible Man reboot that offer fans a hint at the terror Elisabeth Moss will face when she suspects her abusive ex-husband faked his death and continues to haunt her.

“Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.
“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.
Written and directed by Leigh Whannell, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Storm Reid, Aldis Hodge, and Harriet Dyer. Leigh Whannell will also co-produce the film alongside Jason Blum, who is producing the reboot under his Blumhouse Productions banner.
