Evil Is Among Us

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.

"The Disappeared" was written by Johnny Kevorkian and Neil Murphy and directed by Kevorkian. Matthew Ryan (Harry Treadaway) is returning home from being in a "looney bin" for some time after the disappearance of his younger brother which he feels responsible for. Matthew hasn't given up trying to find out what happened to his brother and has begun to see and hear the ghost of Tom trying to send him a message about the disappearances that have been going on.

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.

THE DISAPPEARED (writ., prod., dir. Johnny Kevorkian, 2008, 97 minutes) is a silly horror story that somehow kept me watching to the end. It's really because I'm a sucker for cute English actors. Oh ... do not be confused by the dozen other films with this title ... why does that not surprise me?

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ghost Story and Mystery Tale! March 30, 2011
By Ghoulem
Format:DVD
I write very few reviews but this picture is one that I enjoyed so much I needed to write one. For those with little patience the first five or ten minutes are slow and then the story starts to bring you in to this family's tragedy. The story of Matthew and what happened to his younger brother is compelling. You really feel for this kid and most of the people in his life. There is plenty here for a ghost story lover and a mystery buff as well, the cast does a wonderful job and it was a pleasure to watch a movie that didn't rely on a lot of sudden sounds for scare effects. I will be looking for more films by these filmmakers. Top Notch!

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointingly slow April 1, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First let me say that I am a huge fan of both Treadaway brothers. This Treadaway is Harry. I wanted to really like this movie but couldn't. there is a long lead in until anything happens. By that time I didn't care. harry just gets out of a "hospital" he took his little brothers disappearance hard, now he goes home with his angry father blah, blah, blah. Just too little happened and I lost interest. Pacing is a big thing which I think this director forgot. I still think harry is a terrific actor....this just wasn't his moment.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 January 15, 2014
Format:DVD
The Disappeared quite ingeniously tries to blend the Sixth Sense with a murder mystery, but first time Writer/Director, Johnny Kavorkian, takes a big chance by adding a surprise ending, that just destroys anything the film had going for it. When Matt Ryan's (Harry Treadway) little brother disappears, he loses his mind. Upon returning to his home, he starts hearing and seeing his missing brother. Matt feels his brother his trying to tell him something and decides to follow the clues. The story here was actually pretty good, but the film moves at an absolute snails pace, felling well longer than 96 minutes. This is one of those films where they put everything on the surprise ending and save all the good stuff for the lead into it. The problem is that the surprise ending was lame and didn't make a whole lot of sense. There is a lot of symbolism in this film that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but the ending really just brings it all to a head. British actor, Harry Treadway is the lead and he was really amazing. Treadway manages to mix the depression associated with his brother's disappearance, the feeling that he's losing his mind, and the drive of a man on a mission, resulting in a great performance in an otherwise dull film. The Disappeared had a lot of potential and a unique story, but it moves so slowly that most people will lose interest well before it falls apart at the end.
