The Unnamable Reviews
While this movie appears to be a typical creature slasher, it is so much more. There is a lot of Lovecraftian lore here, and it is done quite sincerely.
Definitely to be seen.
overall, don't seek it out, but if u run across it on tv one boring night, give it a shot.
Sure, Oulette includes plenty of references to Lovecraft: the heroes attend Miskatonic University in the hamlet of Arkham, one character is named Randolph Carter (Mark Kinsey Stephenson), the Necronomicon features prominently in the third act (which mentions of Abdul Alhazred and certain lines of text from the fictional tome, naturally), but the similarities more or less end there.
Carter tells school chums Joel (Mark Parra) and Howard (Charles King) about a demon residing in a creepy house not far from Miskatonic. The scientifically minded Joel doesn't believe the story and investigates the house himself. He is soon torn asunder by the demon (Katrin Alexandre), the daughter of local man Joshua Winthrop (Delbert Spain), who attempted to confine his cursed child but ultimately failed.
The house is later visited by two freshman girls desperate to fit in and make it to the top and two lunkhead fratboys hoping to get the ladies in the sack. Carter and Howard later turn up looking for their lost friend and get suckered in by the demon as well.
If you've ever seen a horror movie set in a haunted house, you know what happens. Just throw in some misappropriated material from the 20th century's greatest practitioner of the horror story, and you'll have an idea what "Unnamable" is.
The students start getting killed off in bloody fashion by the monster.
Lots of blood, violence, some nudity and at times cheesy humour.
This one takes a long time to get started but once it does it is not that bad. The old atmospheric, creepy house where most of the film takes place works well for the film, along with a couple satisfying gory death scenes. The best thing this one has going for it is the scary creature design, its pretty convincing.
