Horror in Absentia

We in The Basement love us our underground cinema. And no genre of underground cinema turns our collective cranks like horror does. Hatchet. Behind the Mask. Session 9. Trick r Treat. The Loved Ones. Dog Soldiers. Gems all!

And along comes Absentia, a creepy looking flick earning vast praise on the festival circuit. And, judging from the trailer below, it looks like a winner . . . at least as far as previews go.

The story is as follows: “Tricia’s husband has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him “dead in absentia.” As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that his presumed death might be anything but “natural.”

No word yet on when or if this will hit a wide release, but you know we'll be reviewing it down the pipe. We'll keep you posted, as always. Check out the official site for more on Absentia.
