Writer/director David S. Goyer (writer of The Blade Trilogy and Batman Begins) makes a departure from the "comic book" movies for which he is best known, and instead helms this remake of a Swedish supernatural thriller. The screenplay was co-written by Mick Davis and Christine Roum, and was based in part upon the novel by Mats Wahl.

THE INVISIBLE, based on Mats Wahl's 'Den Osynlige', and as adapted for the screen by Mick Davis and Christine Roum, seems like a teenage horror/scary flick and while watching it the audience may wonder what the purpose of all of this teenage angst and anger and acting out is all about.

The rather pedestrian story …

The movie is a remake of a 2002 Swedish film called Den Osynlige, which was in turn based on Mats Wahl's 2001 young adult novel of the same name. I've never seen that movie nor read the book, but I did read a detailed synopsis of it. Apparently, the theory that the American remake of a foreign film is always worse is not true...when the original is not so great as well.
