Vanishing on 7th Street Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: VANISHING ON 7TH STREET taps into one of humankind's most primal anxieties: fear of the dark. 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 (Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo and Jacob Latimore) each find their way to a rundown bar. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself.

Review: The Vanishing on 7th Street begins with a lot of promise.  After all, this film has a ton going for it..a great cast and a cool plot.  All of a sudden almost everyone disappears and we get the typical city shots of abandoned cars desolation.  A few people are "left behind" and struggle to figure out what happened.  In the meantime, these shadows are chasing them and unless they stay under bright light they will die.  This film is full of suspense and you hang on really wanting for the explanation in the end..but it doesn't come.  This one is left as a mystery and is as frustrating as a David Lynch film.  Its a fun watch, but no payoff!

Interest Range: Drama, Thriller
