IMO if Universal wants to revive their classic 'Universal Monsters' characters, this is a _MUCH_ better way to go than that Tom Cruise THE MUMMY debacle.  I'd be 100% fine with Blumhouse continuing with the Universal Monsters characters for more revisits.  These classics, IMO, are ripe for reimaginings

100% agree with you thoughts about INVISIBLE MAN.  Gosh, I'd almost forgotten about GONE GIRL and the Neil Patrick Harris nude scene.

Yes, marcia29.  Do give this one another chance.

Chris:
Just saw this too.  Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this movie as I am too high string for jump scares.  Random thoughts:

--Elizabeth Moss is great
--I'm man enough to admit that I wet myself when she threw the paint when he was on the ladder.  ::Shivers::
--I want that house
--It felt like a live action remake of See No Evil from Batman The Animated Series minus Batman.  If you haven't seen it, I shall stare at you judgingly until you do.
