5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Monster Lovecraft Adaption Nov. 30 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of my favorite Lovecraft adaptions of all time and I have all of them. A sorcerer turns his daughter into a hideous monster 300 years ago. In the present (er...80s) a group of college kids investigate the legend by going into the house of The Unnamable. Can the kids survive? Boobs, hot chicks, gore galore, a hideous monster and the Necronomicon make this a flick you will never forget. Though obviously not at the level of Reanimator or From Beyond, this is a worthwhile purchase for Lovecraft devotees.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Third Best H.P. Lovecraft Film June 28 2002
By Guido
Format:VHS Tape
Prior to watching The Unnamable I had seen Two other Lovecraft Masterpieces (From Beyond, Re-Animator), while The Unnamable doesn't get under your skin as much as the other two it's well worth a look.
The setting is perfect as it takes place in an old big house which has supposedly been haunted for years by the most terrifying creature. The creature is so terrifying it doesn't even have a name, hence, The Unnamable. A few college students, from nearby Miskatonic University decide to go and explore the big, creepy house. They soon will find out that would be the biggest mistake of their lives. As with all Lovecraftian films there is some nice gorey scenes and some startling moments. Also The Unnamable is one of the most frightening creatures you'll ever see.
I feel, however, The Unnamable is lacking compared to the other Lovecraft movies I've seen (mentioned up above). The acting in The Unnamable is really pretty poor, the picture is very dark and is hard to see exactly what is going on in some places (I only saw the VHS version) , and we only get to see the creature for about the last 10-15 minutes of the movie. All and all The Unnamable is a good movie and if you're a fan of Lovecraft films I don't think you'll be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars into the dark vaults we look... March 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
it seems i had been swimming in the rivers of shmutz for so long, i'd forgotten what a good horror film was..enter THE UNNAMBLE. They do not make them like this anymore. This film tells the sordid tale of a house that is inhabited by a wraith who doesn't take kindly to trespassers. Of course, local university students decide to spend some time in the home. Their visit is naturally cut short as the wraith seeks to punish the unwanted guests. The acting is above average. There is some real suspense here. And the gore! theres a throat ripping scene here second to none and its timing is perfect. The effects are solid. The plot is good. I have no clue whether the film was true to the lovecraft story it was supposedly based on but who really cares? If you have the chance to own this, buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Close, but no banana. (Miskatonic UCLA!) June 8 2000
Format:VHS Tape
It has more Lovecraftian overtones than actual basis in one of HPL's stories and, in truth, these overtones, along with a pretty cool demon at the end, work best in the movie.
It is kind of a hoot to see the University of California Los Angeles' own sunny quad pass for the miasmic, claustrophobic campus of Lovecraft's Miskataonic University, but even so this is pretty standard kids-trapped-in-haunted-house-fare.
The sequel (with Maria Ford and Julie Strain as the demon) is considerably better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for Lovecraft and Horror Fans April 29 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The Unnameable and its sequel are two of my favorite horror flicks. This one has some scares and in jokes for Lovecraft fans. One of the characters is named Randolph Carter! Folklore majors! Its a must
