The Vanishing On 7th Street trailer online
Set to appear at this year’s Toronot film festival, we can now reveal the first trailer for upcoming spook-fest The Vanishing On 7th Street. And, well, we’re not really sure what to make of it.
Directed by Brad Anderson (the sometime director of Fringe) and starring Hayden Christensen, this looks like a mashup of 28 Days Later and, well, How To Look Good Naked. It’s nice to see the usually flawless Thandi Newton looking a bit disheveled and mucky, and there are certainly some great effects (read Massive Plane Explosion) to get our teeth into. It’s just, hasn’t this premise been done to death? Sudden horrifying disappearance of human life, rallying together of mutually untrustworthy remaining few and lots of scary dark bits… the jury’s out on this one so far. But we’ll keep you posted if we get our hands on any more footage. Check out the trailer below:
