A complicated family dynamic is the point of departure for The Disappeared, part horror movie, part psychological study.

While it may miss an opportunity here or there, The Disappeared is an eerie, entertaining effort.

The Disappeared makes you jump once or twice, but it's a dubiously overcooked horror-thriller.

Johnny Kervorkian sets up the film nicely, but by the end, your worst fears are realised when it climaxes in the most anodyne way possible.

June 19, 2009
Despite a few cliches and a slightly predictable climax, this is an atmospheric, well-made feature debut for the new filmmaking partnership of Kevorkian and Murphy.

Times (UK)

The film is let down by inauthentic dialogue and plotting that unravels rather embarrassingly in the final reel. But the tension is well sustained and Treadaway's performance is full of pallid intensity.

This feature is a little rough around the edges, but Kevorkian has mobilised a top-notch cast and his story delivers more than a few shivers.

With ambition to spare and a talent for shocks and surprises worthy of seasoned directors, Kevorkian has revived the spirits of those who thought the English ghost story was dead.

While there's a good leading performance, after about half an hour you may notice your ability to give a damn also disappearing.

Treadaway is the only good thing about this film, which dwells on the uncertainty of Matt's mental state for too long before jarring towards an OTT ending.

Johnny Kevorkian makes a promising debut with The Disappeared, a slow-burning tale of the supernatural that makes effective use of some atmospheric London locations and a well cast Harry Treadaway.

Extremely atmospheric and genuinely creepy, this is a well crafted, sharply written British chiller with a terrific central performance from Harry Treadaway.

I found the plot uneven and awkwardly paced but have to admit the scares are solid.

moody transposition of a classic psychological thriller/ghost story to the unlikely but effective setting of a London council estate.
