What you can’t see can still kill you. Some diseases are virtually imperceptible. But what if there was a disease that was not only undetectable, but made you invisible as well? This is the main idea behind Geoff Redknap’s The Unseen (2018).
In the movie, Bob Langmore is a man with many troubles. He abandoned his family long ago, but now he has to find his missing daughter. Bob is also suffering from a strange disorder. Parts of his body are turning invisible and he doesn’t know why…
The movie is very dramatic in nature, much more so than a typical horror movie. In fact, there are some elements here that bring it into the genre, but the focus is really on relationships. This creates a strong blend that makes the film all the more interesting and accessible.
Redknap deals with Bob’s issues in a very realistic manner. This is probably one of the most thoughtful depictions of the concept of invisibility out there. There’s also a growing mystery, and more than a few surprises. This all helps to make The Unseen a solid thriller…
Aden Young from I, Frankenstein (2014) is fantastic in the lead role. He’s very genuine and likeable in the role of Bob, despite the characters obvious flaws and weaknesses. Camille Sullivan from Dead Rising: Endgame (2016) is multi-dimensional as his former wife.
Julia Sarah Stone from Vampire Dog (2012) is simply wonderful as Bob’s daughter. Their interactions really make the movie. The movie also features Ben Cotton from Slither (2006), Eugene Lipinski from The Risen (2003) and Alison Araya from The Killer Downstairs (2019).
The special effects will really grab your attention! This isn’t you’re traditional invisible man flick. It goes well beyond the typical green screen effects. Bob’s not completely invisible. Bits and pieces of him are unseen which makes for a startling new look.
The Unseen will make you believe in what you can’t see. Keep your eyes open for it…
