Do you fear the unknown? Do you fear what the darkness hides? Then you need to know what's Vanishing On 7th Street
July 24, 2013
An enjoyable low-budget horror flick, Vanishing on 7th Street has all the thrills and chills you could hope for from a film like this.
January 4, 2012
it's to Anderson's credit that despite a slight script, this film keeps you on your toes almost right to the end.

A creepy, high quality B movie
March 18, 2011
Clothes minus their bodies are strewn around a darkened world in a bizarre wardrobe malfunction, and kind of the opposite of airport body scanning. Though why none of these highly resourceful characters thought night vision goggles, is anybody's guess.

The thrill goes out of writer Anthony Jaswinski's Twilight Zone-style story long before the closing credits.
February 28, 2011
Probably it would have made a much better "Twilight Zone" episode at one-third of the length, but there's enough good, solid genre work here to make it worthwhile.
February 24, 2011
Anderson spends most of his energy creating a mood - making "Vanishing" more cerebral than white-knuckle, though a few more shrieks (mine) might have been nice.
February 19, 2011
A slight yet haunting thriller that replaces easy answers with the pervasive sense of unknowable, evil forces at work.
February 18, 2011
Anderson does a lot with very little - a wavering light, a patch of darkness - and Jaswinski's script tries to break up the stage-bound monotony with a few well-timed (if not particularly informative) flashbacks.
February 18, 2011
Brad Anderson... whips it into something gorgeously terrifying, creating a sense of menace out of shadow and darkness... the likes of which I'm not sure I've ever seen on film before...
February 18, 2011
Brad Anderson's creepily effective low-budget thriller may not have a punch line worthy of your typical "Twilight Zone" episode, but it otherwise gets the job done in under an hour and a half with a good cast.
February 18, 2011
The complete lack of explanation suggests Jaswinski forgot to finish his script. But Anderson tries hard to compensate, distracting us with suitably ghostly atmospherics.
February 17, 2011
Working from a script with diminishing returns by Anthony Jaswinski, Mr. Anderson smartly frontloads the movie, drawing you in with long shots of deserted cityscapes, the quiet punctured by periodic bird calls and dog barks.
February 17, 2011
...will satisfy those looking for a lightweight scare.
February 17, 2011
A little more polish in the writing could have made it a must-see, but as it stands, it's a fairly solid B-movie matinee with a nicely calibrated mix of intellectual dread and visceral shock.
February 15, 2011
It is creepy enough to make you hope the theater parking lot is brightly lit.
February 13, 2011
Clothes minus their bodies are strewn around a darkened world in a bizarre wardrobe malfunction, and kind of the opposite of airport body scanning. Though why none of these highly resourceful characters thought night vision goggles, is anybody's guess.

If Brad Anderson never conjures a truly iconic image, he still delivers a raft of mildly striking ones.
