Vanishing on 7th Street

(2011)

When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals (Christensen, Leguizamo, Newton) 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 realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

EXCLUSIVE: Brad Anderson Talks ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’

Director Brad Anderson may not be a name you're familiar with, but if you're a fan of cinema that cuts against the grain, you will have likely come across his work. Brad Anderson broke onto the scene with the 2001 thriller Session 9. He followed that up in wonderful fashion with 2004's The Machinist and the tragically underrated 2008 masterpiece Transsiberian. In between films, the director keeps busy on the small screen, directing episodes of shows such as The Shield, The Wire, Fringe, Treme, and Boardwalk Empire.

Brad Anderson's latest big screen project is Vanishing on 7th Street, which will be released in theaters on February 18. This thriller takes place in Detroit and follows a group of survivors who realize that a widespread power outage is really something much more sinister. I recently had the chance to speak with this talented director over the phone. Here's what he had to say.

Starring Hayden Christensen, John Leguizamo, Thandie Newton and young R&B sensation Jacob Latimore, Vanishing on 7th Street is a scary, character driven horror film that taps into one of humankind's most basic and universal anxieties: fear of the dark. The film, which premiered at this year's Toronto Film Festival, was produced by Norton Herrick, Tove Christensen and Mandalay Vision's Celine Rattray, and is yet another smart and unconventional genre entry from Anderson (Session 9, The Machinist, The Machinist), one of the most talented independent filmmakers working today.
