Watch Absentia Online with Director Mike Flanagan Hosting
We've made no bones about the fact that Mike Flanagan's Absentia (review here) was among our favorite films of last year. If you haven't had a chance to check it out for yourself yet, then mark your calendar for February 2nd as Flanagan will be hosting an online screening and Q&A of the film that evening.
Here are the details:
The screening starts at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT on Constellation.tv. Flanagan will be live via webcam and talking with the audience as the film airs.
Absentia stars Katie Parker, Courtney Bell, David Levine, Morgan Brown, Justin Gordon, James Flanagan, and genre favorite Doug Jones.
Tricia's (Bell) husband has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister, Callie (Parker), 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.
Can't make the screening? Absentia has a February 7th Ultra-VOD release planned, and it hits DVD on March 13th.
