If you didn’t watch the stellar series “Rectify” when it aired on SundanceTV, then you might not be familiar with actor Aden Young; but this writer was a big fan of the show – and Young’s performance in it – so when a press release for his new film The Unseen landed in my inbox, of course I had to share the news with our Brainwaves family!
The Unseen is an upcoming “invisible man” story from writer/director Geoff Redknap, best known for his work as a special makeup effects artist in movies like The Cabin in the Woods and The Predator and TV shows “Supernatural” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” Redknap says that his influences include H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man. “I did take some ideas from…H.G. Wells’…work,” he said; and a few of those influences can be seen in the official release trailer, which you can watch below.
The Unseen stars Aden Young (I, Frankenstein; Don’t Tell) as Bob Langmore, who has a strange condition: His body is slowly disappearing. Dissolving away, Bob reaches out to his family with time running out. However, his former wife, Darlene (Camille Sullivan), tells him that their daughter, Eva (Julia Sarah Stone), is missing, leading to Bob’s desperate search for a reunion. Ben Cotton, Max Chadburn, and Alison Araya co-star.
The film had its World Premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival this past summer and is now set to debut on DVD and Digital on February 26th through US distributor Monarch Home Entertainment. Click here to pre-order.
A man who years earlier mysteriously abandoned his family and isolated himself in a small Northern town returns for one last chance to reconnect with his troubled daughter. When she goes missing, he risks everything to find her, including exposing the fact that he is becoming invisible.
