One night in a London housing project playground, 8-year-old Tom Ryan vanished without a trace. He was never found. But for his guilt-ridden older brother Matthew (a startling performance by Harry Treadaway of CONTROL), the terror has just begun: He has started seeing and hearing what may be the ghost of the missing boy, who is now trying to lead him to the shocking truth behind his disappearance. You can hide a secret, but can you ever bury the horrors of the past? Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in the HARRY POTTER films) co-stars in this disturbing debut chiller from co-writer/director Johnny Kervorkian that Electric Sheep Magazine calls a tense and absorbing experience...Kervorkian shows plenty of talent for building a creeping sense of terror and delivering genuinely heart-in-your-mouth shocks.

This was a very thrilling psychological horror story that unfolds very gradually and picks up momentum as it progresses. Some twists are decipherable from the beginning but one in particular is very surprising. What is fascinating is that the older brother keeps hearing and seeing things that the camera shows aren't there for others to see so throughout it begs the question whether the ghost is real or if it is all in Matthew's head.
Harry Treadaway as Matthew has to bounce back and forth from being somewhat numb as an after effect of the drugs he has been on to a determination to solve this mystery once and for all. He doesn't know how to trust with what he has been hearing and seeing because everything still thinks he is crazy. Treadaway is deep in the throes of anguish over the loss of his sibling and captures the mental instability mixed with fear well while on this journey.
Matthew befriends a girl next door, Amy (Ros Leeming) who has her own problems but believes his story and tries to help him out. This is Leeming's debut film performance which is a surprise because not only does she master the role well, but she is pretty in a captivating way with cascades of super long light blond hair. Amy brings a dash of hope and potential for romance.Read more ›
Poor young Matt Ryan (Harry Treadaway, City of Ember, see my review) and his father Jake (Greg Wise) are suffering badly from the disappearance of Matt's little brother Tom (Lewis Palmer). Matt's best friend Simon (Tom Felton) is something of a minor comfort but then his sister is abducted. It is feared Tom has also been abducted.
Since doing too many drugs and losing his little brother landed Matt in the nut house, he is obligated to do follow-up visits at the hospital and is pestered by his care worker Adrian Ballan (Alex Jennings). However, it seems all this is a build-up to the obvious: Matt sees and hears dead people.
There are too many pointless, frankly stupid horror films like this with the kidnapping-serial killer-psychic routine, and I do not think England is the place for them to be trying at this waste of a genre. Unlike the beautiful novel Vintage: A Ghost Story (by my friend Steve Berman, see my review, and I think THE DISAPPEARED is a rip-off of that by the way) this story has nothing to offer, no lesson, not even decent entertainment. Oh, it made me jump once and I take my hat off to them for that.Read more ›
