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.
