1572 California Street
San Francisco, California

From director Brad Anderson (Session 9, Transsiberian, The Machinist) comes VANISHING ON 7TH STREET, a terrifying, apocalyptic thriller that 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 newcomer Jacob Latimore) each find their way to a rundown bar, whose gasoline-powered generator and stockpile of food and drink make it the last refuge in a deserted city. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself, and only the few remaining light sources can keep them safe. As time begins to run out for them, darkness closes in and they must face the ultimate terror.

“Wonderfully shot in deep, bleak shadows. Anderson starts Vanishing as an apocalypse thriller and moves on to a surprisingly poignant character piece. The cast is uniformly excellent.”— Scott Weinberg, FearNet.com

“An enjoyably unsettling thriller. VANISHING ON 7TH STREET re-imagines the apocalypse as an encroaching darkness that evaporates people in its path… it bears a striking resemblance to Romero’s original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD but prefers creeping unease to outright horror.”— Tim Grierson, Screen International

“A good, classic horror-thriller throwback. If you're a horror-thriller fan, you definitely need to check out the film no matter what.”— Alex Billington, FirstShowing.net

The film’s running time is 90 minutes; it is rated R.
