Default The Unseen (1980)



From a premise standpoint it's definitely not re-inventing the wheel. This film is a product of its time when the home video boom was just starting to happen and slashers were being churned out on a seemingly endless trashy, exploitative conveyor belt. But even with its formulaic premise "The Unseen" is elevated above the standard 80's slasher fare due to its offbeat tone and genuinely quality suspenseful pacing. It also has a couple memorable villains. Now don't get the wrong idea; this is not filmmaking on the level of "Psycho" or anything. There are things in this film that will appeal to fans of 80's cheese to be sure. (& fans of short-haired blondes) But there is real good work here from a cinematography, score, pacing & acting standpoint. A veritable mish-mash of styles; very unique in that regard. See "The Unseen"!

I don't know, man. Yes, this was suspenseful up 'til a certain point but then...........

Spoiler Below
Junior is revealed and not only does he look like Sloth from Goonies; the make-up does little to conceal the fact that he is Flounder from Animal House. Everything was somewhat redeemed by Ernest being the real creep and how that was revealed.


Cheese is about right. Well, at least this guy was a blast as always.

Definitely a notch above the standard, carbon copy slasher-fare of the time.

7/10
