I'm actually really excited about seeing this movie Vanishing on 7th Street. Brad Anderson is an awesome director who has made some great films such as Session 9, The Machinist, and Transsiberian. The guy has yet to make a movie I don't like. The dark thriller also stars Hayden Christensen, John Leguizamo, and Thandie Newton. Say what you will about Christensen, I think he's an OK actor. You can't blame him for his bad acting in the Star Wars film. Lucas managed to make Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson look like bad actors as well.
An unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain -- surrounded by heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. A small handful of strangers that have survived the night each find their way to a rundown bar, whose gasoline-powered generator and stockpile of food and drink make it the last refuge in a deserted city. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself, and only the few remaining light sources can keep them safe. As time begins to run out for them, darkness closes in and they must face the ultimate terror.
The film is going to be released on VOD on January 7th 2011 and will get a limited theatrical release on February 18th 2011. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
