Before directing SAVAGE STREETS featuring Linda Blair, and the fourth FRIDAY THE 13TH sequel, Danny Steinmann cut his teeth as a Horror director with 1980's THE UNSEEN. I never even knew this film existed until three years ago, when I saw it in 35mm during one of Exhumed Films' 24-Hour Horrorthons. And though I haven't seen it since I would gladly give it another look, so I'm stoked that it is once again readily available on Blu-ray disc! Never heard of it? Well then keep reading Vault Dwellers to see if this might become a new addition to your Blu-ray collection!
Synopsis: A TV reporter (Barbara Bach - THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, FORCE 10 FROM NAVARONE) and two friends head to Solvang, California, to cover a Danish festival. When a mix-up at the hotel leaves them stranded without rooms, the girls accept the invitation of a friendly museum owner to board at his farmhouse. But what the women don’t know is that something is living in the basement – something unspeakable. Their stay soon becomes a horrific nightmare when they encounter THE UNSEEN!
The film stars Stephen Furst (NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE, MIDNIGHT MADNESS), Sydney Lassick (CARRIE, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST), Lelia Goldoni (FACES, BLOOD BROTHERS), Douglas Barr (TV’s The Fall Guy, DEADLY BLESSING), and Karen Lamm (TRACKDOWN). Herbert R. Steinmann (DAWN OF THE DEAD) presents this original story by makeup legends Stan Winston (PUMPKINHEAD) & Thomas R. Burman. Co-written by Kim Henkel (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and directed by Danny Steinmann, witness the horror with a brand new 2K scan of the original negatives!
