Format: DVD
Director/Producer/Co-writer, Sage Bannick had to battle studio heads in order to try and get this film made and I suppose after having to endure their lists of excuses for too long he decided to go ahead and make the film on a more limited budget. I am not an expect in the matter but I would think in some ways this turned out to be the better of the two options since this way I think he had a lot more artistic freedom to get the film made the way he visioned it rather than having some studio execs getting their dirty hands on the script and changing things around as they see fit. The film starts off with Vincent and Oscar as kids and Oscar being the target of a sinister plan to collect life insurance. Oscar does a little sneaking around and soon discovers what their parents are up to so he beats them to the punch and in return he spends 25 years in prison. We then jump forward to present day and we see what Vincent is doing and as well as finding out that Oscar is being released from prison. The film stays busy during it's short 80 minute run time, it manages to keep the slasher plot going strong while fitting in the back-story on Oscar and also the suspense on the missing teenagers as well as giving us enough character development so that we can have some sort of connection to these people. The Absent doesn't try and hide the identity of the killer, it also isn't much of a mystery as to what is going on. But it isn't intended to be any of those things either, the film gives you the story right from the start without hiding any facts but the story is gripping and interesting enough to keep you at the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next and ultimately wondering how it is going to end.Read more ›

I rented this from Amazon Instant Video. It seemed low-budget, and the beginning of the movie held some promise, then it just got increasingly confusing. I won't spoil any of it for anyone who wants to watch it but I was slightly disappointed in the plot. I give 3 stars because of some of the unexpected twists and turns, but it wasn't enough to make me happy I rented it. The editing could have been done better, too, as that added to my confusion.

We went and saw this movie at a special showing at the theatre and i have to say it was not that great. i feel it was way to predictable. for a low budhet movie it was not horrible could have spent a little more time on it.

Stars: Jennifer Blanc and Kelly B. Eviston.
This is a really good drama and then evolves into a very evil horror.
Makes twins seem justified,Then totally uncalled for actions to keep a secret.
To see the acting chops of ladies listed and Sam Ball as the sheriff was a joy,And even bigger surprise in what was assumed in Indy Horror.
Congrats to director Sage Bannick, You pulled off a good scare.
