Critic Reviews for The Unseen

All Critics (2)

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.

About as frightening as a fly on your drinking glass.

Audience Reviews for The Unseen

Another horror film in which city folk find themselves out of their element when presented with a small town and a lack of lodgings, putting them in the creepy house of one of the locals for the night and leaving us to wonder why the hell they wouldn't just leave. This was one of those Code Red DVD films that I was trying to chase down forever, so I'm happy to have finally gotten a chance to check it out. Rental!
