It was better than I would have thought. It tries to be both a kids movie and a Bad Santa type flick, but you have to just pick one and run with it.
It's a few fun parts if you need time to waste. Overall it's just too campy and doesn't pay enough attention to detail. Random people appear on the stranded school bus for just one scene. Other more important characters appear for one scene, other more important characters are gone with no resolution. Just not well done.
To take a concept as trite as the Invisible Man and turn out a movie that's still terrifying and suspenseful at times is an achievement. Towards the end it pivots to more of the law enforcement side of drama, which isn't as interesting, but Elizabeth Moss does such a great job that it's still worth seeing through the end.
It's a little sentimental in that it's a last hurrah for the Jim Henson monster like muppets. Should have been more of that. It's just too boring watching a movie about witches that never leaves a hotel.
There's some positives about this movie. It jumps straight to the action without any unnecessary build up. It's provides a new take on the horror/slasher genre. It's just that payoff isn't worth the torturous scenes you have to squeamishly sit through.
