The 1988 UK video was cut by 21 secs and a further 16 secs was removed from the 1992 release with both videos being cut to edit gore from a heart being torn out and a man's head being repeatedly slammed against a floor. The 2004 Anchor Bay DVD is fully uncut. See more »
Many Lovecraft films stray far from the original Lovecraft story. THE UNNAMEABLE is only seven pages long, but the screenwriters crafted their story very well using the source material for the story. As for film gore, that is just "fluff" for modern horror film fans who seldom notice the underlying themes and concepts of the story. This is a good attempt to use original Lovecraft material and update to a modern setting without violating the concept of the original story.
