Who doesn’t love a good thriller?
Sometimes, we watch, and it’s okay, and other times, we catch a good one, and we’re tense and terrified the entire time!
That’s the effect The Invisible Man had on everyone.
There were many moments in this film that left us on the edge of our seats with our hands buried in our hair—just stressed out. We desperately wanted to figure out how Cecilia was going to beat something she couldn’t see!
With that in mind, let’s get into the four most terrifying moments that left us cringing in suspense.
[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT!]
Cecilia Trying to Escape From Her Home
The movie starts with Cecilia trying to leave her husband and the extravagant fortress of a home they shared. We can tell she’s already planned this “escape”, but watching her try to get out of the house is enough to make the hair stand up on your body.
Perhaps, the tensest moment in this scene is when she accidentally kicks the dog bowl and makes a lot of noise. Still, then as a viewer, you were probably annoyed that she almost got caught up trying to take the dog along with her.
Leave the dog—save yourself!
Her attempt to save the dog allowed the husband (Adrian) to nearly catch up with her. Right as she hops in the car with her sister, he smashes his hand in the window as they drive off.
She Finds Adrian’s Phone in the Attic with Recent Pics
If you think your husband’s dead but you find his phone in the attic buzzing, it’s only natural to be a little creeped out!
There were already some strange occurrences that she didn’t pick up on like the handprint on the shower door, or his breath behind her when she was standing outdoors.
When she locates the phone, she notices that it’s Adrian’s phone with a text message that reads “surprise.” This is a pivotal moment in the film because it’s the moment that she realizes that he’s around in some capacity.
Then, it only gets more insane when she ends up pouring the can of paint and sees the outline of a man!
The Infamous Restaurant Scene with Her Sister
At this point in the film, her sister has had it with her because she believes that Cecilia sent her a nasty email, but it was Adrian (of course).
Suddenly, when she’s sitting at the table with her sister at the dinner table, a knife rises in mid-air and quickly slices her sister’s throat! Of course, Cecilia is terrified, shocked, and in a state of paralysis. There’s no way she can prove her innocence at this moment.
The audience feels more for her because it seems like Adrian has won with all of his carefully pre-meditated antics.
The Final Revenge
When Cecilia’s in the mental hospital because everyone thinks she’s completely lost her mind, she gets a visit from Adrian’s brother, who drops a bomb on her. He tells her that Adrian switched her placebo birth control pills and she could be pregnant!
At this point, could you imagine being pregnant with the seed of a psychotic, abusive man?
His brother tells her that she should consider going back to Adrian because he’s not dead! Ultimately, she agrees to meet with him, only to give him a taste of his own medicine!
She plays the victim and cries a bit to excuse herself to the restroom where she secretly puts on the invisible suit. Can you believe she comes back out and slices his throat, goes back to take the suit off, and then perfectly positions herself to scream in disbelief in front of the cameras?
Oh, and the police were outside.
She got the money and her freedom, even though she lost her sister.
Love Thrillers, But Hate the Anxiety It Brings?
Some of us love scary movies of all sorts. However, the intense emotions that some films bestow is a little much for some people.
Besides, who says your stomach has to be tied in knots the entire time?
Some people want to watch thrillers without the added anxiety that the jump scares bring to the table.
We bet you didn’t know that CBD pairs exceptionally well with scary movies and thrillers because the compound encourages full-body relaxation—making it the perfect product that’ll lighten the mood when needed.
Sure, specific product selection is up for debate because there are so many amazing products on the market, but CBD capsules give you all the CBD you need to kick back and enjoy whatever comes your way.
Even if it’s a psycho, abusive husband who created an invisible suit to torture his wife!
