TIFF ’10: Darkness Falls in ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’ Trailer Debut!

One of four horror films playing at this years Toronto International Film Festival’s “Midnight Madness” is Brad Anderson’s Vanishing on 7th Street, a new thriller that gained a lot of hype during its script stage. The story begins when a massive power blackout causes the population to inexplicably vanish, a small handful of survivors (Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo) band together inside a desolate tavern struggling to survive as the darkness hones in on them. From director Brad Anderson (Session 9, The Machinist, Transsiberian) comes an apocalyptic thriller with a terrifying vision of our world’s end and a story that wrestles with the nature of existence itself. Check out the trailer debut inside, although it’s a bit murky like the early stills. Hopefully we’ll see a hi-res version soon.
