When people ask me what horror film to recommend that they haven’t seen before, and probably have never even heard of, I tell them, “Watch Brad Anderson’s ‘Session 9.’” So yeah, I’m kinda of a big fan of the guy. So when I heard he was moving back into the psychological horror arena with “Vanishing on 7th Street”, I was very pleased. Via Bloody-Disgusting, here’s the first synopsis of the movie, and it certainly sounds like a doozy, if by doozy you mean friggin’ great time:
“In the film a mysterious and seemingly global blackout causes countless populations to simply vanish, leaving only their clothes and possessions behind. A small handful of survivors band together in a dimly-lit tavern on 7th Street, struggling to combat the apocalyptic horror. Realizing they may in fact be the last people on earth, the darkness hones in on them alone.”
The film will star Hayden Christensen, John Leguizamo and Thandie Newton. Check out a title logo below.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of Christensen on set as a reporter. Luckily they shot the sequence on a real news station, and the station got a front row seat.
