There are things on God's Earth that we can't explain and we can't describe. 
From the depths of Hell comes H.P. Lovecraft's
The Unnamable. 

"One kid gets his throat torn out.  Another one gets his head banged on the floor until blood runs out.  The gore is well done." - Glen Coburn, Whacked! Skewed Views of Horror Movies That Simply Refuse to Die


"This movie has enough good points to make it fun.  It's got some interesting eccentric characters, blood, decapitations, a topless starlet, and flashbacks.  A pretty amazing female monster with hooves, wings, horns, and long white hair shows up near the end." - Michael J. Weldon, The Psychotronic Video Guide


"Decent monster, lotza haunted house cliches, fair amount of gore." - Ken Kish, Video Wasteland: Rental, Reference and Review Guide


The time is now.  The setting is Winthrop house, believed to be haunted for the past 300 years.  It is rumored that Joshua Winthrop was horribly murdered and mutilated by the creature borne of his wife.  

Meanwhile, college students at nearby Miskatonic University decide to disprove the rumors by spending the night in the house.  They are later joined by Carter who now takes the legends more seriously when he learns that his buddy has disappeared there.  

Together, they come face to face with the unspeakably horrible creature.  Hearts pound and pulses race as it stalks their every step.  Who will live and who will die?  Don't miss the incredible climax when the nightmare comes to life in... The Unnamable.
