Horror: A woman tries to escape from her abusive tech-mogul boyfriend, only to discover he's haunting her as an invisible man.

Cecilia Kass (ELISABETH MOSS) has had enough of her abusive and uber-controlling optics-tech mogul boyfriend, Adrian Griffin (OLIVER JACKSON-COHEN), and thus drugs him, sneaks out in the middle of the night, and gets a ride to safety from her sister, Emily (HARRIET DYER). She ends up staying with her longtime cop friend, James Lanier (ALDIS HODGE), a single dad to teenager Sydney (STORM REID).

Suffering from PTSD and worrying that Adrian will somehow find her, Cecilia is relieved when she learns that he committed suicide. Not only that, but she also learns from his brother, Tom (MICHAEL DORMAN), that Adrian left her $5 million in his will to be paid in large monthly installments. Even so, he got so deep into her head that she can't shake him, and thus occasionally has sensations that he's still around.

And that only gets worse when she begins to experience weird physical things that not only make her question her sanity, but also whether he might still be alive and using some sort of invention to make him invisible to the naked eye. As that progressively gets worse, everyone close to Cecilia think she might be losing it, all while she tries to prove that Adrian is somehow haunting her as an invisible man.

Those into horror movies probably will.
For some strong bloody violence, and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
