To debunk an old wives tale about a haunted house told to him by his friend Carter (Mark Kinsey Stephenson), college student Joel (Mark Parra) decides to spend a night just there, being convinced nothing will happen to him. But of course, something happens, and when the next day he doesn't return home, his friend Howard (Charles Klausmeyer) gets mighty worried - but it takes quite a bit of convincing before Carter even considers accompanying him to the haunted house to check up on Joel. In the meantime, college chicks Tanya (Alexandra Durrell) and Wendy (Laura Albert) have let college jocks Bruce (Eben Ham) and John (Blane Wheatley) persuade them to spend a night in said haunted house, as the jocks naturally expect to get beyond first base with them in the creepy settings - but soon enough, they are attacked by the house's resident creature (Katrin Alexandre), who has been left confined there 50 years ago, and who now picks them off one by one. When Howard and Carter finally arrive, the carnage is already in full swing, and while the normally feeble Howard detects his heroic side, Carter sticks to the place's library to figure what's going on - and finds an issue of the infamous Necronomicon. But will the combined force of these two unlikely heroes be enough to save the survivors - or even themselves?

 

Now The Unnamable is by no means on par with Re-Animator, but as far as H.P. Lovecraft adaptations go, this is for sure one of the more entertaining ones, as it manages to put Lovecraft's story in a contemporary setting and context without losing too much of its impact, doesn't take itself too seriously while doing so without ever becoming just moronic, and it has got its scares in all the right places and is fittingly atmospheric throughout. And Mark Kinsey Stephenson makes quite an amusing slightly arrogant secondary hero.

In all, no masterpiece, but great genre entertainment and a fun trip down memory lane.
