I Have Seen The Unseen!,
This review is from: The Unseen (DVD)
Sorry, Puzzle Box, I watched it!
I did watch the film, The Unseen, and the character referred to as "The Unseen" is indeed seen near the end of the film, so the title is kind of pointless if you know what I mean. This early 80s horror flick has three chicks shacking up at Sydney Lassick's place when they find themselves stranded in a small town. Lassick and his wife have a homicidal mutant man-child living with them that takes a liking to the ladies. While I've definitely seen worse, this one didn't do much for me(though I probably liked it more than Puzzle Box did). I think what I enjoyed most about it was Lassick, who's always a hit if you want someone a bit oddball and creepy. He definitely has a few "I want MY cigarettes!!!" moments here. Otherwise the film is rather goreless and bland, nor is it creepy or atmospheric enough to qualify as psychological horror either. And it's brought to you by director Danny Steinman, who is responsible for the underrated and often trashed Friday the 13th Part 5, the fun and trashy revenge flick, Savage Streets, and my personal fave, the 70s porno flick , High Rise! The Unseen may be of interest to folks who love 80s horror and are trying to see everything they can.

Hmmmm. I think 2 stars says it all for me. This sounds like it should be titled "Best Left Unseen".

Well this one isn't all that good, but I do give it some credit for having Lassick in it! Oh and the ending is classic! lol! Did you know that the person playing "baby Huey" is non other than "Flounder" from Animal House! .......just one of those weird tid bits of trivia rolling around in my skull!
Cool review Stan....I didn't know this was available on DVD.

Exactly right! I've had the great misfortune of seeing that compost heap of a so-called horror movie and another similarly good title for it would be "Should Remain Unseen".
