2019s The Unseen
After making the rounds on the film festival circuit for several years, The Unseen is now on VOD, free on Amazon Prime.
The Unseen stars Aden Young, who you make know from I, Frankenstein, as Bob, a former hockey player turned mill worker estranged from his family. Bob has a strange medical condition, which is partially why he has left his family, but heads home to see his daughter who may be headed down the wrong path. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll leave it there.
I really liked this one. First, it’s Canadian. I love my Canadian horror films, and this one has a strong indie feel but is well made. Aden Young does a great job with his character’s demeanor, and fits the character as I would expect him to be.
Well filmed and scored. As I briefly mentioned, it has an indie feel to it, but has its horror elements due to Bob’s medical condition. The story isn’t all about horror, but about relationships within this family, and I’m a sucker for those kind of stories.
I don’t think this will be for the hardcore horror fans, but it checked quite a few of the right boxes for me. I would have loved some more horror elements to it, but when viewing it more as a relational film, it worked for me.
