Leigh Whannell’s Invisible Man reboot won’t be going the PG-13 horror route, earning an R rating from the MPAA. The ratings board has assigned the Elisabeth Moss-starring remake of the 1933 Universal horror classic the rating, listing “some strong bloody violence, and language” as the reason for the rating.

The film is written and directed by Whannell (Upgrade, Saw) and stars Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Harriet Dyer, Storm Reid, and Aldis Hodge. It is set to release on February 28th.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Dyer), their childhood friend (Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Reid).

“But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
