A few years back I wanted to do some coverage of the L.A. Screamfest, but was unable to fly out west to attend the outpouring of genre goodness ... so one of the (very cool) festival reps sent me a handful of screener discs! It worked out great: the festival got a little extra coverage, and I got to see some pretty cool horror-type flicks. The best of the batch was easily Den Osynlige (aka The Invisible), a Swedish thriller about a young man who gets killed, but comes back as a ghost (the very next morning) and tries to determine who murdered him.

As with many fine genre films from around the world, Den Osynlige was quickly commissioned for an American remake. David S. Goyer (Blade: Trinity) is the man behind the camera this time out. The new version was written by Christine Roum and Mick Davis, the guy who wrote the original flick. (And to be fair, both movies are actually based on a novel by Mats Wahl, so I'll let you argue as to what a "remake" truly is.)

The new Invisible comes baring a lot of newcomer-type faces, although I did notice a few names like Marcia Gay Harden, Callum Keith Rennie and Chris Marquette in the cast list. Disney's Touchstone is planning to unveil The Invisible on January 26th. Oh, and here's that trailer I promised you.
