The thriller ‘The Invisible Man’ explores the terror of domestic violence

The cast of the new horror movie “The Invisible Man” talk about the hidden message of domestic abuse. Elisabeth Moss plays Cecilia Kass a woman who is being hunted by her abusive ex that no one can see. The actress tells Yahoo Entertainment, “The idea of a woman not being believed is very relevant right now.” She goes on to say, “There’s emotional abuse, psychological abuse, gaslighting, bullying … that can be incredibly damaging to people.”

Director and writer Leigh Whannell says Moss contributed a lot from a story perspective. When he was developing the character Whannell says, “I unraveled that she’s escaping this toxic relationship. You find out how scary and prevalent that is.”

“The Invisible Man” is in theaters Friday.
