After a world premiere at Fantasia 2016 in Montreal, Geoff Redknap’s debut feature, The Unseen, will have its US premiere at the 16th 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.
