It’s been a while since last we spoke about one of our favorite indie offerings of the year, Absentia (review here), so given that the film will be premiering On Demand this Friday, July 1st, we thought it best to remind you. Well, that and show off this spiffy new one-sheet!
From the Press Release

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.’ Tricia is reluctant, always holding out hope, but Callie is practical and wants her to move on. 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.’ It seems that the ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia … and Tricia’s husband might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.
