    The Unseen is a charming, yet pathetic, film from Danny Steinmann. Starring Barbara Bach and surprisingly Sydney Lassick, The Unseen has some fun horror house kills and a script that functions decently.

    The plot takes a back seat in The Unseen. Clearly Steinmann read a copy of Goosebumps and went with it. Yet, this manufactured horror story is a foundation for a great house of horrors and some wonderfully over the top performances. Namely, Sydney Lassick who tries his very best here, genuinely coming across as creepy at times.

    While a majority of the film isn't lit correctly so it becomes as much fun as shaving in the dark, The Unseen has some enjoyable sequences and the vague semblance of effort from the cast.
