The Unseen comes to Screamfest, perfectly timed for Halloween. After a world premiere at Fantasia 2016 in Montreal and a wave of critical acclaim (Screen Anarchy, Variety, Hollywood Reporter), Geoff Redknap’s debut feature will have its US premiere at The 16th Annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival, in Hollywood, October 25 at 9:30pm at the world famous TCL Chinese 6 Theatre.
In a modern retelling of the classic The Invisible Man, The Unseen is the story of Bob Langmore (Aden Young) a former hockey player, now a struggling mill worker who years earlier mysteriously abandoned his family and isolated himself in a small northern town. He returns for one last chance to reconnect with his troubled daughter Eva (Julia Sarah Stone), but must partner with Crisby (Ben Cotton), a strung-out animal trafficker, to finance the trip. When he discovers Eva is missing, Bob will risk everything to find her including exposing the secret that he is becoming invisible. The film combines the drama of a family disintegrating both figuratively and literally, in this gritty action science fiction thriller.
“Exceptional… The best of its kind to come along since Unbreakable… When you look at the debut films of currently top-of-their game filmmakers like Rian Johnson and Gareth Edwards (at the moment, hard at work on sizably budgeted Star Wars films), who made technically ambitious but softly empathic films right out of the gate it is not hard to see the potential on display here. The Unseen is a gift to those who value character and a more tender kind of storytelling; undoubtedly it is a sure sign of many more great things to come.” -Screen Anarchy
