Absentia, a feature-length film that was funded in part by Kickstarter, was recently picked up by Phase 4 Films for stateside distribution. Its VOD premiere is set for this Friday, July 1, with a DVD release to follow later in the year. David Harley chimes in with his thoughts:
“ ‘Absentia,’ Mike Flanagan’s Kickstarter-funded horror flick, takes its time setting up a scary and somewhat realistic scenario dealing with uncertainty, loss and the psychological implications of being overwhelmed by both at the same time. And yet, it still finds room to competently squeeze in a supernatural element.”
You’ll find the full review by clicking the title above, or check inside for the trailer and official VOD poster.
“Tricia’s husband has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him ‘dead in absentia.’ Tricia is reluctant, always holding out hope, but Callie is practical and wants her to move on. As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that his presumed death might be anything but ‘natural.’ It seems that the ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia … and Tricia’s husband might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.”
