| Film Synopsis |
What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, 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 while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

THE INVISIBLE MAN hits Ultra HD Blu-ray with an HDR transfer and a 2.39:1 aspect ratio. With most of the movie taking place in the dark, the biggest concern was with the black levels. Surprisingly the levels were perfect. The picture is also super clear — from hair, face and when you see the invisible man. Overall its a beautiful looking picture.
| Audio |
THE INVISIBLE MAN hits with a Dolby Atmos and a core 7.1 Dolby TrueHD Master Audio track. With the Atmos version, the dialogue is clear and well defined from its front-center speaker. The overhead effects are primarily used as a source of enveloping the viewer into the intense scene. Universal offers a first-rate audio presentation.
