Another Day, Another Trailer For A Horror Movie

But this one actually looks good!

If you aren't familiar with the name Brad Anderson and you consider yourself a horror film, well, shame on you. Anderson made the exception Session 9, the effective The Machinist and the so-so-but-still-worth-seeing Transsiberian. Now he's about to unleash his latest effort, Vanishing on 7th Street, and it looks creepy cool.

The film features Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo as a disparate group brought together by the fact that darkness itself seems to be making people disappear into thin air. Soon, the survivors are clinging to what light sources they can find, spurred on by ominous warnings to avoid the dark at any cost and to only trust the light they carry themselves.

Sound good? Just forget Christensen is in it and give it a try.

The film doesn't have a release date, but premiers at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.


  1. Does sound interesting... and Christensen's acting MIGHT improve a bit since he's not surrounded by nothing but green screens- unlike the CGI obsessed world of George Lucas's revisionist Star Wars franchise... but the key word is, "MIGHT".

    After all, who would think that Daniel Radcliffe (aka- Harry Potter) would possibly be able to act in a serious Hammer Films remake of a ghost movie, eh?

  2. Exactly. And a film with Anderson at the helm always makes me excited!
