Horror movies have a tendency to become extremely redundant, especially when you take into account the number of remakes and regurgitated characters that come around every few years. From endless tales of vampires and the people that love them to the post-apocalyptic world of the war between zombies and humanity there will never be a shortage of different ways to tell these stories. However, one story that's getting a face lift looks quite promising. And one reason for this is phenomenal actress Elisabeth Moss.

Many will recall Moss has been a prolific actor for many years, and her resume is quite impressive. Two of her most iconic roles though have to be her time as Peggy Olson on the critically acclaimed series Mad Men and June in The Handmaid's Tale. Moss' portrayal on Mad Men, which garnered many awards and nominations, has long been touted as one of the best performances from the series. It's also one of Moss' most beloved characters. Though, she has admitted in the past to having a very different approach to acting.

The Guardian reports;

“I wish I was super-serious, anguished,” she adds. “I see those actors and I am like, oh God, they are so cool and they seem so interesting. I don’t take acting that seriously. I love my work, but I do not think that I am saving the world, and I do not think that I am doing anything brave by accessing emotions that I might have for roles.

No one would ever suspect Moss as not taking her craft super seriously, especially when it comes to her role as June in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.

Moss has even commented on how important it was to her as the lead actress and one of its producers to remain true to the source material, with just a few concessions. The Guardian reports;

We were faithful to the idea and the tone and the messages of the book,” she says, “but we kept characters alive that died and we did things that were never in the book, so we’re not afraid of that.”

Moss will be bringing even more of her tactical approach to acting with the re-telling of The Invisible Man, a long running standard villain in the horror genre.

Given Moss' penchant for putting on dynamic performances The Invisible Man should give her a great opportunity to showcase her acting chops. Especially since most of her scenes involve her having to react to something that's not even there. Director Leigh Whannell also commented on how challenging this made filming as well in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“The interesting thing was that I was constantly shooting these empty rooms, and empty corridors, and there’s something a bit uncinematic about that,” Whannell told EW last year. “I mean, when you make a movie, the idea is that you put people in the frame — you put something in the frame. When you’re shooting nothing, it goes against the grain of every cinematic instinct you have!”

The Invisible Man premieres February 28. Check out a clip below.
