New Details: Brad Anderson's The Vanishing on 7th Street





Brad AndersonSome new details today for Brad Anderson's next film guaranteed to screw with your head, The Vanishing on 7th Street. Given Anderson's track record, which includes Session 9 and The Machinist, we'll see pretty much anything the director gets to do. But we have to admit directing chops aside, the flick sounds pretty damned good.

Finally, after some fairly vague details, we have an official plot crunch for the film, which stars Hayden Christensen, John Leguizamo, and Thandie Newton. Dig on that below. No release dates have been issued as of yet, but when we know, you'll know!

For more check out an early title card treatment over at Bloody Disgusting.

Synopsis
A mysterious, 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.

NEXT STORY

SESSION 9 still holds up as one of the few films to genuinely frighten me. However, everything Brad Anderson has done since has been disappointing to say the least.

Sadly, I must agree. The Machinist was overshadowed by Bale's transformation for his part, and Transsiberian was just okay. Hoping for a return to form because Session 9 was, and still is, one of my favorite films ever.

"The Machinist" was an excellent underrated gem about guilt and death very much in the vein of "Tell Tale Heart." I've yet to see Transsiberian.
