BC-shot ‘arthouse thriller’ screens this Thursday, with cast and crew in attendance

Aden Young and Camille Sullivan come together to help their daughter in the BC-shot family/horror/sci-fi drama The Unseen.

A family drama with horror/sci-fi elements, The Unseen is a B.C.-shot movie that its makers call an “art-house thriller.”

Released on the festival circuit in 2016, the movie is getting a screening this Thursday at the Rio Theatre. Cast and crew will be in attendance at the July 12 screening, which starts at 9:30 p.m. (doors: 9 p.m.) Here’s a closer look at the film and cast.

The Unseen stars Aden Young, Camille Sullivan, and Julia Sarah Stone. Young plays the main character, Bob, who left his family eight years previous due to a condition that is turning him invisible one layer and body part at a time. Now working at a lumber mill and living in a trailer in a B.C. town, dressed from head-to-toe to hide his condition, Bob is called upon by ex-spouse Darlene (Sullivan) to help with their troubled teenaged daughter Eva (Stone).

Young is a Canadian-Australian actor best known for his role as Daniel Holden in the SundanceTV drama Rectify. Sullivan is a Canadian actress who has appeared in the TV series Rookie Blue, Da Vinci’s Inquest, Intelligence and Shattered.

Stone is a Vancouver-born actor who appeared in the 2011 movie The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom. According to Wiki, other credits include the CW series Emily Owens, M.D.; the third season of AMC’s The Killing; and a number of Canadian-produced dramatic films, including Wet Bum.

An invisible dad has to rescue his daughter (Julia Sarah Stone) in BC-shot The Unseen.

Writer-director Geoff Redknap is a special makeup effects veteran whose work has been seen in numerous TV series (The X-Files, Supernatural) as well as features (Deadpool, The Cabin in the Woods). He filmed The Unseen in Vancouver, Langley and Kelowna.

According to variety.com, The Unseen “has authentic grit as a story about one man’s struggle with alcoholism and depression,” and “Young is impressive as a protagonist who might well have been most comfortable as a lumberjack a century ago, when there was less northwestern B.C. society to withdraw from.”
