The Unseen

( 1 )

Overview

In this taut horror outing, three female journalists head out for isolated Soveg, California to cover a popular Danish festival. Unfortunately, they can't find a motel and end up staying at a strange old mansion owned by a mysterious fellow who is far worse than he seems. He has not only committed patricide, he is also incestuously involved with his own sister who gave birth to their deformed son, whom he has chained in their basement. The three spend a terrifying night, and in ...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This lesser-known shocker from the early 1980's is often lumped in with the slasher films of that era but it is a different beast altogether. The Unseen actually has more in common with the post-Psycho wave of shockers from the mid-1960's: the plot is driven by a creepy old house, a mysterious killer who lurks in the shadows and nasty family secrets that threaten the lives of the film's unsuspecting protagonists. The film's setup is a little creaky and romance-subplot diversions involving the heroine reek of t.v. drama but the film takes flight when the Keller family and their country home are allowed to take center stage. In terms of acting, Barbara Bach offers a solid if not terribly interesting performance as the reporter heroine but that is okay because the film really belongs to the troubled 'family' at its core. Sydney Lassick is pitiful and monstrous by turns as the family's wicked patriarch, Lelia Goldoni offers a richly expressive performance as his long-suffering wife and Stephen Furst offers a stunning, dialogue-free performance as the mysterious figure who holds the secret to the house's killings. Behind the camera, director Danny Steinmann (using the pseudonym Peter Foleg) achieves a genuinely creepy atmosphere that slowly sneaks up on the audience. More importantly, he shows a real flair for suspense setpieces, paying the film off via an intense final half-hour that works the viewer over with white-knuckle suspense. In short, The Unseen is a nice surprise for horror fans and well worth rediscovering.

    Awesome early 80's scare!

    This is by far one of the best 80's slasher/horror films ever made!! Everything about this little gem is spooky, the plot, the setting, the mood, and the characters. Barbara Bach, Lois Young, and Karen Lamm are perfect for the three young, nubile reporters that each fall victim to the insanely, chilling Sydney Lassick's deformed son, Junior. Lelia Goldini also gives one of the best twisted, heart-broken performances of all time, she was sooooooooooo good at being crazy and depressing! I definately reccommend this to anyone who loves horror movies, even though the body count isn't that high, it's still one of the best movies ever made!
