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.

Audience Reviews for The Unseen

½

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.
