A more disturbed version of "Psycho"!
8 October 2012 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

If anyone has watched "Psycho" in the past, this movie would be right up your alley. "The Unseen" is like it, only dealing with a child name "Junior"(Stephen Furst, "Animal House", "Silent Rage") who is a result of in-breeding. This movie was well made, and the cast were just perfect. Barbara Bach who was in the 1977 hit, "The Spy Who Loved Me", plays Jennifer Fast, a news reporter who goes out with her friend and sister to do a story on a festival, find this nice home to stay for the period following a mix-up at the hotel. Unknown to them, there is someone living in the house, and it's not very friendly. So when Jennifer went to do the story, her sister Karen(Karen Lamm) and her friend Vicki(Lois Young) are killed by an unknown being. The surviving woman must do protect herself from impending danger. Not only did the "Unseen" loved his mother, he began to resent Ernest Keller (Sydney Lassick) the man who offered and lured the ladies to his old house. For what it's worth, it was a great movie. It has plenty of scare factor, suspenseful, and was surprising as well. I enjoyed it very much. 2.5 out of 5 stars
