A new found footage indie has cropped up in Absence, which now has a pair of video trailers. The film is directed by Jimmy Loweree (Climbing Mt. Evelyn) from a script he wrote with Jake Moreno. The (apparently) alien inspired feature stars Erin Way, Eric Matheny and Ryan Smale.
Way plays “an expectant mother who wakes up to discover that her pregnancy has disappeared overnight. Along with her husband (Eric Matheny) and her brother (Ryan Smale), she travels to the mountains to find out what happened to her unborn baby.”
The film was picked up for worldwide distribution by Cinedigm and will hit theaters in New York on July 5.
“In Jimmy Loweree’s striking horror feature debut Absence, doctors are baffled when a young expectant mother, Liz (Erin Way, “Alphas”), wakes to find her nearly-to-term pregnancy disappear overnight. The police are investigating the situation as a missing child case and only her husband, Rick (Eric Matheny, J. Edgar), and brother, Evan (Ryan Smale, Damage), trust her version of events. Told in the “found footage” style, Evan looks for answers by filming his sister’s experience. The trio embark upon a trip to the mountains to escape the attention of the police and prying neighbors. When the trip spins out of control, they realize that whatever happened with Liz and her baby isn’t over. None of them are safe.”
