Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian) returns to the big screen with his latest, Vanishing on 7th Street, about a man (Hayden Christensen) who walks out into the city only to realize that everyone has disappeared. What has become of them?
They were attacked by shadows, of course.
An interesting concept, and one that might feel right at home on an episode of “Doctor Who,” but the trailer here doesn’t sell me on it (though, the plane falling from the sky is a nice touch). The idea here is that, in order to avoid being snuffed out, you have to hide in the light from the shadows. My suggestion: Find a fluorescent lit Cumberland Farms and hide out.
How the hell do you kill a shadow, anyway?
