Vanishing on 7th Street Movie Reviews
User reviews on Vanishing on 7th Street
This is a horror film starring Hayden Christensen and it is directed by Brad Anderson. The film was not good at all and I wish I did not waste my time on seeing it. The film is low budget and it looks and feels that way as well. I have to admit that the “monsters” are kind of cool because we can not really see them and it adds a little bit of tension to the film but on all other accounts this film is a failure. Actually, the cinematograpgy is quite good as well, considering that most of the film is shot in the dark. Overall, the film is not worth seeing in the theaters but if you are bored enough you can check out the DVD.
The movie was alright and it did manage to scare me from time to time. The idea of the film is pretty stupid but I guess i give them some points for coming up with the different way to kill all the people in the world. The creatures that kill everyone are never shown and it adds to the tension and the thrill. There are some religious undertones in the movie and it ends with the religious experience at the church. I do not like when a horror flick has a hidden religious message, so I take out points for that. The film is low-budget but it does not look that way, the cinematography is amazing and it made Detroit look sort of vintage. Overall, i would suggest renting this film and enjoying it at the comfort of your house.
The concept of the film is very very stupid and I do not understand how in the world people come up with stuff like that. Basically, shadow puppets are destroying the world and Hayden Christensen with bunch of random people are trying to survive. There is absolutely no tension in the film because there is no reason or purpose in this film. Shadow puppets have unlimited power and people die just because the filmmakers need them to do so. Hayden Christensen is terrible as always and none of the characters in the film have any depth. Basically, it was a “horror” movie with no horror, no explanation and absolutely no logic. I simply hated the whole thing.
