Storyline

A group of hikers led by a college professor are searching the woods for an ancient Indian burial mound. When they discover a likely site, three members of the group reveal themselves to be grave looters, and tie up the others so they can keep the valuable artefacts for themselves. In the course of ransacking the mound, one of them stumbles across a cursed crown that unleashes the mound's guardian: an invisible monster that begins attacking everyone it finds. Will anyone make it back to civilization alive? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

I'll tell you why it is I had to see this one...
9 February 2009 | by Vomitron_GSee all my reviews

Okay, I simply had to see this since I saw it's "sequel" first (about two years ago), UNSEEN EVIL 2 (aka ALIEN 3000), and I immensely enjoyed it because it was truly one of the worst movies I had seen in a very long time. From it, I also learned that Tim Thomerson apparently starred in the "original". All this was reason enough for me to sit my a§§ down with this "original" epic tale of Alien Terror & Indian Mysticism.

So how did it go down this time? On a bad movie-scale, this "original" is about twice less fun than the "sequel". Does that actually make it a better movie...? I have absolutely no idea...

It's not even fun writing a user-comment for it (while the sequel was). We got annoying people running around in some woods, being chased and ripped to shreds by crappy CGI (make no mistake; it's not as fun as it sounds). But if that's your thing, then sure, go ahead and watch it. I'll always be willing to give retarded rubbish like this a peek, but I can only take so much of it.

I'll be generous and give it one point for what happens to Tim Thomerson. Didn't see that one coming. I guess the producers realized they were spending too much money hiring him, so they just decided on the spot to write him out of the script.

By the way, if you happen to love UNSEEN EVIL, then go watch DEMONICUS (2001). You'll have a blast. It's even from the same director (Jay Woelfel) and its more or less the same movie, only this time with a possessed idiot running around in a plastic Roman-times inspired body-armour, slashing people in the woods. Have fun.
