With everyone being at home trying not to figuratively murder their family, there are a few first-run movies on VOD today, The Invisible Man and The Hunt, that can help take the pressure off with their own depictions of socio-violence.
These are two great movies from House of Blum and if you didn’t catch them in the theater you may as well pop some popcorn, make a box of nachos grab a Fanta and settle in for an evening of top-notch filmmaking.
If you choose to make this a double-feature, get ready for two stellar female performances by Elisabeth Moss and Betty Gilpin for The Invisible Man and The Hunt respectively.
Here are places to rent them both:
Apple TV (Sign-in required)
Or check out your cable providers On Demand section
Both films (including Emma) are available to rent for $19.99 each.
If you think $20 is too expensive, consider this: You can bring your own snacks, more than one person can watch with you so if there are four people that’s $5 per person, and you don’t have to leave the house.
And these are A-List critically acclaimed movies just weeks from their theatrical releases.
About The Invisible Man:
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, 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 as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
About The Hunt
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose … The Hunt.
In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.
