Danny Steinmann's THE UNSEEN (1980) from Scorpion Releasing 8/20

Out of Print through prior distributor Code Red, Scorpion Releasing give Danny Steinmann's perverse sorta-slasher THE UNSEEN (1980) a hi-def upgrade! When a group of sexy news-gals arrive in a small California town to cover a regional Danish Festival, the hotels have all been booked up and they're forced to stay at a local museum curator's mansion. Of course, not all is as it seems, and it becomes clear "The Unseen" may have plans of its own...

Emphasizing mood and atmosphere over graphic bloodshed, THE UNSEEN may seem a disappointment if you come in expecting a sleazy gorefest, but stick with it, as it builds a mounting sense of dread with several suspenseful set-pieces capped off with a completely gonzo climax that'll have you scraping your jaw off the floor. Bond gal Barbara Bach is always great to look at, but it's the unforgettable performance by Stephen Furst that you'll truly remember. "You worry too much, Virginia."

Amazon Preorders (WEA/Ryko/ADA is Scorpion's distributor):
DVD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DELKA66/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957& creativeASIN=B00DELKA66&linkCode=as2&tag=horrdigi-20

Each link has a different price, but they both state DVD as the format.

That's why I stated above, "(The blu is currently listed as DVD, but the price difference makes it obvious which one is which.)" New listings at Amazon can get a little wonky, but they usually get fixed in a few days.

Been a long time since I've seen this but I'll be picking it up. Barbara Bach is such a beautiful woman.

Nice set Russ!

Been interesting to watch this title be listed on ebay in recent weeks. They figure they're better off listing it now rather than selling it for $10 when this new release hits stores. (It's still selling though, that's the surprising bit!)

Are Scorpion A locked? Damn Panasonic...

I have the dvd. Really is a strange little movie and a curious one. The performance are all good though and it has some heart to it.

The ending is so wrong. I felt bad for laughing hysterically.
Other than that The Unseen is not popular amongst feminists, but I love the film anyway.

Going through my old folders I came across this double billing when the film played in San Diego.

Another review for the new DVD: http://10kbullets.com/reviews/u/unse...ion-releasing/

Apparently this version is 2 minutes longer than the version on the old Code Red DVD.

I hope some reviews for the Blu-ray show up soon...

So does the new Blu-ray include all the extras from the Code Red DVD?
