 Ever since first seeing ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST I've been a huge fan of character actor Sydney Lassick.  The man just always brings a smile to my face.  When I heard there was a horror flick starring my man Syd as a creepy old fellow with scary secrets I knew I had to check it out.  THE UNSEEN is pretty much everything I hoped it would be.  OK maybe it coulda used a little gore, cuz that's always icing on the cake, but even without it you get a really crazy tale full of incest, murder and general insanity.  Sydney, as usual, is amazing in the role he was born to play as a tubby lecherous fellow that Barbara Bach and her friends somehow trust enough to spend the night in his place when they get stuck in a little town.  This just shows Sydney's vast range in acting styles to go from a kindly old gent to a raving, lady-slapping nut-bag from scene to scene.  I've seen this lumped in with slasher flicks and I can see why cuz there is killing going on but I think there's enough oddball elements to put this in it's own category.  
 The last half hour of this really needs to be seen to be believed when a character who reminded me of Sloth from THE GOONIES mixed with Curly from THE 3 STOOGES mixed with Leatherface shows up and all hell breaks loose.  I would recommend this movie just for that if nothing else.
 The movie was directed by Danny Steinmann who also did FRIDAY THE 13th PART 5 and SAVAGE STREETS so he's alright in my book.


  1. I love this movie enough to eat a womans hair and drive nails through my skull. To bad we couldn't see it in the theater the way Lassick would have wanted it.

    1. It only took 6 years to finally get to see this one on the big screen!!
