In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, movie theaters across the globe are closing their doors. While this move is necessary to slow the outbreak of the virus, it spells unfortunate news for new movie releases. 

Everything from the live-action Mulan to the new James Bond thriller No Time to Die have seen their release dates pushed back. Meanwhile, in the realm of horror, the highly-anticipated A Quiet Place Part II, which was originally slated for a March 2020 release, has been shelved.

And yet, there is a silver lining to the scheduling shuffle—and a glimmer of good news amidst the pandemic anxiety. In a move that is incredibly fortunate for horror fans sheltered away in their homes, several brand-new horror and thriller flicks—including the phenomenal new chiller The Invisible Man—are set to hit Video on Demand streaming services months ahead of schedule.

Released in theaters in late February 2020, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss and The Haunting of Hill House's Oliver Jackson-Cohen. It's an adaptation of the H.G. Wells science fiction novel of the same name, albeit an adaptation with a twist. Instead of centering on the vanishing mad scientist, the movie follows Cecilia Kass (Moss). Cecilia receives a hefty fortune following the death of her abusive ex-boyfriend, Dr. Adrian Griffin (Jackson-Cohen). After a series of strange and dangerous events, Cecilia begins to suspect that Adrian faked his own death, acquired the ability to become invisible, and is now stalking her every move. As the danger mounts, Cecilia must prove she's being hunted by someone no one else can see. 

The Invisible Man is a tense and terrifying tale of gas-lighting and abuse. It was also a smash horror hit, grossing over $120 million worldwide with a budget of just $7 million. And starting this Friday, March 20th, The Invisible Man will be available at $19.99 for a 48-hour streaming rental in the comfort of your home.

Needless to say, it makes for the perfect weekend treat as many of us remain indoors. And if you’re looking for another dose of scares once you finish The Invisible Man, the controversial Blumhouse thriller The Hunt will also be available for VOD rental this Friday. The supervillain thriller Birds of Prey will be available on March 24th, while the Jane Austen adaptation Emma. will be available this Friday.

As more 2020 horror movies are sure to follow this trend, there’s at least one bright spot amidst all the anxiety caused by the coronavirus and constant media coverage.
