Movie Info

Tricia (Courtney Bell) has waited for nearly seven years to have her missing husband declared legally dead, and just as this ruling is about to be made, her sister Callie (Katie Parker) discovers that an ominous tunnel near Tricia's house might very well be a portal to a supernatural world that might be responsible for the husband's disappearance. Now the sisters must prepare, as they appear to be next in line.

Audience Reviews for Absentia

    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.

    This is a good idea with good intentions but the whole thing is a dread to endure. It's not bad "bad", it's fairly well made but it's just boring and leads us nowhere for the big majority of it's time. Would make a great short movie, as a full-length, there's a lot of scenes trying to be deep and meaningful, that end up adding nothing and wasting our time with it's aimlessness.
