Rediscover H. G. Wells’ classic novel and inspiration for the terrifying new film starring Emmy® winner Elisabeth Moss and written and directed by Leigh Whannell.
Wells’ novel, The Invisible Man (1897), blends horror and tragedy in its story of a scientist who discovers a way to make himself invisible. His inability to reverse the process leads to a radical disconnection from society–and eventually from his own sanity.
