And that was that… until the director decided to criticise Limmy a total of 28 months later.
Australian Whannell, who also co-created the Saw franchise with James Wan and wrote horror film Insidious, wrote seemingly out of nowhere: “One of my followers just reminded me of the time this guy started critiquing Invisible Man and I was wondering if any of my UK friends could review his work for me.”

That was strange enough, but he then followed it up by calling the comedian a "c***snot".
After one of his followers replied saying “who is he?” Whannell added: “I don’t know but he started shitting on the film and I was like ‘hey there, filmmaker here’ and he got a bit sheepish and was like ‘sorry, I didn’t think you’d see that’ and I was like ‘it’s the Internet c***snot, everyone can see it’.”

The Invisible Man starring Elisabeth Moss currently holds an 88 per cent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Cult comedian Limmy is the creator of Limmy’s Show, which ran for three series on the BBC from 2010-2013. He also previously turned a Leave voter breaking down and apologising for Brexit into an annoyingly catchy song.
