Movie Info

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 the morning only

Definitely has moments of tension, but there's also plenty of dead space littering the feature, reducing conflict and indulging oddity to a point of tiresome repetition.

A terrible movie when it came out in the '80s, "The Unseen" hasn't aged well, even in terms of camp value.

Audience Reviews for The Unseen

A fairly dull horror flick about three female guests lodging at an odd couples large house who start to fall prey to an unseen killer lurking beneath the floor boards. Were it not for the last 25 minutes this would have been a dire forgettable waste of time. It lacks thrills early on with pointless scenes and only a couple of tame kills. But things liven up during the last third with the appearance of the mongloid killer and his hilarious imbecilic antics who you'll actually start to root for come the end! The fun starts far too late though sadly, but for fans of 80s horror who are immune to bad low budget productions this may be worth a look.
