The Unseen is less about an invisible curse, and more about a family-man whose broken heart beats for the wife and daughter he left behind. You’ll sample grotesque glimpses into man’s usually-covered inner workings, but writer/director Geoff Redknap’s feature debut isn’t about horrors or scares. Instead, the veteran makeup artist/special effects guru parlays his prosthetic talents into an unnerving quest for one unlucky father, ripe with emotion and angst. You’ll get your Frankenstein-like reveals that make you gasp in astonishment, along with actual story constructs deeper than a few Hollow Man homages. This is genre work that offers something a little more than cheap thrills.
Aden Young stars as Bob Langmore, a former NHL prospect who fled from his family to become a mill worker. It sounds harsh, until we learn something special about Bob – he’s slowly turning invisible. There’s no explanation, »

“The Unseen” follows Bob Longmore (Aden Young), a man who abruptly left his wife Darlene (Camille Sullivan) and daughter Eva (Julia Sarah Stone) and isolated himself in a small Northern town. He works at a saw mill and mostly keeps to himself, avoiding human interaction if at all possible. Bob abandons his family because of his unique condition: He’s slowly going invisible, in an irregular and shocking way. When Darlene reaches out to him, Bob returns home to reconnect with Eva, but as soon as he returns, Eva mysteriously goes missing. Now, it’s up to Bob to risk discovery and the life he’s created for himself in order to find the daughter he loves. Watch a trailer for the film below.

Ten days out from its anticipated premiere, we have a host of exclusive – and darn well stylish – character posters to share for Crackle’s flesh-munching sequel, Dead Rising: Endgame.
Due to make its bow via the streaming service on June 20, the horror actioner largely takes place in East Mission City, an area irrefutably crippled by the zombie outbreak. In a bid to quell that devastating pandemic, the government hatches a plan to send the undead packing, but it’s one that will also entail massive collateral damage – the death of millions of innocent people.
Taking a stand against that scorched earth tactic are your new favorite band of zombie hunters, with today’s exclusive batch of posters spotlighting Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe), General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert), Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) and wacky scientist Rand (Billy Zane). Following up on the largely successful Watchtower, it is Pat Williams »

East Mission City beckons, and there’s a government conspiracy to uncover in the latest trailer for Dead Rising: Endgame, the video game movie sequel that’s due to shuffle onto Crackle later this month.
With the majority of the urban landscape now under quarantine, Endgame picks up at a time when Chase Carter – played once again by Jesse Metcalfe, who reprises his lead role from Watchtower – begins to unearth disconcerting details relating to a massive cover-up that could go a ways to explaining the origins of the zombie virus running rampant in the city.
The truth, however, is far worse, when our chainsaw-wielding hero uncovers the government’s scorched earth approach to dealing with the zombie epidemic – one that will seemingly bring an end to the mutated infection at the cost of millions of innocent lives. On board to postpone the apocalypse are Billy Zane, Dennis Haysbert, Marie Avgeropoulos, »
