Editorial Reviews

VANISHING ON 7TH STREET taps into one of humankind's most primal anxieties: fear of the dark. An unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain surrounded by heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. A small handful of strangers that have survived the night (Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo and Jacob Latimore) each find their way to a rundown bar. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself.

Format:DVD
This movie starts with an interesting premise which is immediately engaging. Unfortunately, very little happens over the next hour to draw you in. The plot and character development stall quite quickly, and the film drags. I kept watching nonetheless, expecting a big pay-off at the end, which, sadly, never came. The movie ends abruptly with a range of Christian imagery and all major questions unanswered. Frustrating all around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Often Leaves Us in the Dark June 18, 2011
Format:DVD
This film starts with an eerie and inventive premise. It leaves a more haunting, memorable trail than most movies in the genre. But in between its first and its lasting impressions, it somewhat loses its way in the dark.

Too much goes unexplained. For example, we see John Leguizamo stranded in his darkened movie theater one minute - then we next see him lying battered and bruised in an illuminated bus stop shelter. What happened to get him there? In his commentary, Director Anderson says that there was some scripting that would have explained Leguizamo's trajectory, but a variety of constraints prevented this explanation from becoming part of the film. Actually, Anderson thought this was all to the good though - that some things were best left to the imagination. I'm not so sure about that. It seems Leguizamo's navigation of the engulfing, vanquishing night would have been one of the processes most interesting to watch. Without showing such process, the film too often ends up being just abrupt, choppy, and undeveloped.

It also has too many lapses of logic. The creeping darkness doesn't play fair. It shifts its rules of engagement, overwhelming one person, while allowing another similarly situated person to survive, at least for a while. Well, that could be an additional aspect of the evil of the darkness. It toys randomly with its victims, like a cat may or may not toy with a mouse, sheerly on a whim.

Then I had one of my common technical complaints about this film. The DVD often projected as an indecipherable smudge on my TV screen. So it ran as murky rather than sinisterly dark. There is something about the final lighting/filtering process that many modern filmmakers use that causes their movies to be a chore to watch on home TV's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall disappointing film & BD production May 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Putting aside that this was another film with unlikeable characters doing dumb things in an unexplained end-of-humanity non-plot, I was still hoping the Blu would have some stellar extras and picture quality (with all of the darks and shadows). Unfortunately, the special features are some of the worst inclusions I have seen on a film like this, and the only thing giving this some higher marks was the 7.1 DTS.

The story follows four people wallowing through their idiocies in trying to survive some unknown catastrophe that leaves a city (played by Detroit - which was a better character than everyone here) devoid of people. Some bad CGI shadows follow them around trying to gobble them up sans their clothing. I would have to say some typecasting has to occur here when you have Hayden Christiansen walking around with a hood barely showing his face for several sequences, followed by someone holding a long green glow stick baring resemblance to a certain weapon Hayden might be carrying in some other franchise. But anyway, the supplements are all in lodef and I listed all of the bad ones first:

* Alternate endings, 3 or 4 at 8:20 minutes. Please take my advice and skip these. They are no different except for one alternate camera angle and a different sunset - nothing changes from the film.
* Revealing 7th Street (making of), 7:04 minutes. Talking heads & really bad insight by the cast on the film and story.
* Creating the Mood of 7th, 7:04 minutes. They essentially took the cuts from the first one and made this longer one, but with reasons for why they chose Detroit. Which I have to say I am not sure if all of the reasoning made Detroit seem worse ("gothic", "Dead" etc.), or they just didn't realize they were saying it.
* Behind the scenes montage, 2:11 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vanishing good movie November 9, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a good creepy movie. If you like a movie with a happy ending, and answers all the questions do not view this movie. It moves along at good pace but not like an action thriller, there is also no gore. This movie to me was asking us as viewers to pay attention, like the male lead at the beginning is oblivious until he gets out into the street and finally realizes that something is wrong. We have in the movie four people,three adults one boy all wind up at a bar with the lights still on having worked out that the light keeps the things in the dark away. The characters realize that they have to get out of the city but have they left it too late. There appear to be several themes operating in this movie such as; pay attention, inaction is worse that no action, something that appears too good to be true is, know thyself, do not get caught in the past you won't move forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Effective Horror Film January 10, 2011
By Ami
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Vampires. Werewolves. Psycho killers. Clowns. It's all been done. I consider myself a connoisseur of fine horror and this, ladies and gentlemen, is fine horror. If you're expecting to jump out of your seat over cheap scares--this isn't a movie for you. Vanishing on 7th Street is something entirely different, yet moves at a fast pace and doesn't leave you wishing it would get to the point. All the actors are superb and it's refreshing to see something set in Detroit. I was thrilled as can be with this little gem and will be buying it the second it hits dvd. Until then, the rent might seem high, but if you've got the cash and a couple hours alone late at night...you should really indulge.
