Absentia is very creepy, non-formulaic and more grounded in relatable personalities than the usual horror film filled with hottie victims and other stereotypes.
A rare (and total) misfire from Mike Flanagan...
Absentia is an dark urban fairy tale whose inspirations appear to be as wide ranging as Noah Baumbach and Guillermo del Toro.
Absentia is a captivating mystery and, at key moments, a terrifying thriller.
An instant indie horror gem...
don't overlook this hidden gem, elevated by the great subtlety of its writing, the lived-in conviction of its two central performances, and by Flanagan's careful handling of narrative twists and turns that pivot around a gaping chasm of ambiguity.
weighted down with the trappings of microbudget filmmaking
A melancholy tale of loss that's only peripherally a horror flick, but a good one all the same.
Pure filmmaking. Has the atmosphere that is by and large missing from the horror genre, opting for character development, tension, engagement and grounding rather than jump scares and gross-out gore effects. Still a horror movie, to be sure (and therefore not for everybody) but one that stands on its own.
Although it does have its tense moments, this low-budget movie is not only marred by poor narrative choices and a lame cinematography but also leaves a lot unanswered and so many elements underdeveloped, with a frustrating ending that tries too hard to be profound.
Plays on your fears, a great debut from Flanagan who delivered a great horror film for his hollywood debut. A little slow but that seems to be his story building.
