Here is the trailer for The Machinist director Brad Anderson’s upcoming horror movie Vanishing on 7th Street, which seems pretty interesting and looks like it could be able to offer us a bit of nail-biting suspense.
The movie follows a small group of strangers, played by Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo, as they wake up one morning in Detroit, after a night filled with unexplained blackouts.
As they go out, they discover that the once so populated streets are empty and filled with heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and strange lengthening shadows. As they each find a refugee at a rundown bar, they notice that the very daylight seems to be disappearing and that they’re being surrounded by uncanny shadows.
Soon they realize that the enemy is in fact the darkness itself and that the only thing that keeps them alive are the few remaining light sources. As time begins to run out and the darkness closes in, they must face the ultimate terror.
Both the plot and the trailer remind me of a TV-movie from the mid 90’s – The Langoliers – based on a story by Stephen King. A movie that I found, even if it felt too prolonged, to be pretty decent and suspenseful nonetheless.
We will be able to see what really lurks in the darkness on the 7th street and if it’s similar to King’s story, as it hits the theaters and the VOD market on February 18, next year.
