Product Description

When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city’s population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realise the darkness is out to get them. But as their light fades, how long can they survive before the shadows devour them?

Um, don't really know how I can expand on the title. Four strangers wake up to find the world's population has disappeared and only their clothes remain. If that wasn't spooky enough, those `bad ghosts' from the Patrick Swayze film of the same name have finally got themselves another gig and keep coming out of the dark to make a grab for our dumbfounded heroes. Only staying in the ever diminishing light can save them.

It's a good premise and the cast do well enough with the dialogue that's given to them. Plus there are some moments of genuine creepiness.

It's quite an open-ended story. If you don't mind your films not giving too much away (yes, even after the credits roll) then you won't be too disappointed.

I've read what other people have said on this film and some have read biblical elements into the story. I'm no Christian, so I didn't see that, but, I'm told the signs smack you in the face (I just must have ducked).

It is what it is. There are better films out there, but there are worse too. If you're not expecting too much, this one might be pleasing enough.

We started watching Vanishing on 7th Street with no idea of what to expect. We had seen a single trailer for it and thought it looked pretty good. Mostly we were intrigued as to what was causing the people to vanish. The film starts off really well and jumps straight into the meat of the plot. Within a few minutes most of the people have vanished and you are gradually introduced to the survivors. The back story for most of the people that you are introduced to is delivered by flashback, which is a mechanism that I normally find a bit annoying, however in this case it was ok and served its purpose. You aren't given quite enough information to actually start caring about these people though and this is where it starts to go downhill.

From the promising start you know get to watch the trials of the main characters as they adjust to what is happening around them, however there are a couple of fairly major downsides. Firstly there is no consistancy to the behaviour of the shadows and the precious light that fends them off. There seems to be some kind of advanced entropy going on and all items that generate power seem to be gradually failing, this is fine as a principle, but why in that case isn't it consistant? There is also no consistancy to how the characters escape from the shadows, at one point fairly near the beginning the main character hides from them in a car with no lights on. So whatever these things are seem to be able to get everywhere except inside a locked car? In that case how come all of the other people vanished from their cars?

My second major problem with the film is that you aren't even provided with enough information about what is going on to be able to form your own opinion about the cause of it.

Detroit; the entire city has a split-second black-out, everyone disappears - rapture-style - leaving their clothes behind in a pile on the floor. All electrical systems are down and any electrical light sources rapidly runs down. A group of survivors (who happened to be bathed in some source of natural light when the black out occurs) band together in a downtown bar with a generator. The lights keep the dark at bay but for all they know they could be the last people left in the world. With the fuel running out and the days inexplicably becoming shorter & shorter, how long can they keep the whispering dark out?

SPOILERS follow, so if you don't want to know what is wrong with this film, please don't read on. But let's be honest - there's really nothing to spoil.

This start of this film is amazing - the opening scene where Hayden Christensen (Star Wars - Prequel Trilogy) wakes up to an empty Detroit with nobody on the streets is a straight rip-off of 28 Days Later but that doesn't lessen the chilling effect of seeing an entire city like the Mary Celeste - seconds later, an airliner ploughs into the street about a mile behind him... and that's it, that's the best bit of the film right there - barely 5 minutes in, you've seen all that this film has to offer. It's a great set-up but it's all downhill from here...

Thandie Newton (Rocknrolla) plays a hysterical woman looking for her baby, but she comes over like a mental patient rather than a concerned mother.

The other reviews on her have detailed the problems with this film, and, honestly, I can't disagree with what they have said. Yet, somehow, I really enjoyed this film. Yes, it's full of plot holes. Yes, some of the plot defies explanation or logic and yes, the ending is frustratingly inconclusive; but for all that I found this a genuinely creepy and enjoyable experience. I feel it would have benefitted from at least another hour of footage to fully explore all the plot threads that are introduced and abandoned (see other reviews). Maybe someone could remake this as a TV mini-series?
If you go in with low expectations or have bought this is a bargain bin for a quid, then you may get something out of it. I did.
