Unfortunately, as a whole, the film does not quite succeed. This is disappointing, as Anderson has proved in his previous work how original he can be.

Overall, Vanishing on 7th Street was just randomly ridiculous and utterly asinine.

Can't make heads or tails of its own ideas.

The film has a few eerie chills, but they're chills in anticipation of a payoff. There is no payoff.

The film borrows from too many sources, and almost always comes up short, lacking depth, character or reason.
March 11, 2011
The movie plays like an Off-Broadway theatrical production still going through rehearsals, the cast and crew trying to wring the kinks out of the material in lieu of opening night.

It doesn't really progress beyond what happens in the first forty minutes.

Prediction: Vanishing on 7th St. will vanish from theaters very quickly.

Brad Anderson's supernatural thriller is stacked to keep us guessing. Initially, this makes it watchably atmospheric. But the inconclusive hints lead to the sense that he's withholding too much.

This is The Twilight Zone as written by Jean Paul Sartre. What audacity! What vision! And, alas, what a failure.

Vanishing on 7th Street feels like a classic in the making until we get to know the main characters.
February 20, 2011
It's a stylish thriller that falls apart under any serious scrutiny, the lack of explanation equally frustrating and compelling at the same time

The promise of its opening wears off as the film wears on.

'I exist!' is the clarion call of the characters in Vanishing on 7th Street, just before they're vanquished into a deadly netherworld of shadows. After you've seen this tedious thriller you may wish the film didn't exist at all.
February 18, 2011
Those streets full of empty clothes hold a special kind of terror. More's the pity that the film can't do anything with them.

...the shadow-puppet apocalypse exists outside of explanations, or indeed logic of any kind. So does Vanishing on 7th Street.
February 18, 2011
There are a few moments in the film that suggest just how a subtle, creepy version of that film might play. This is not that version.
February 17, 2011
provides little raw material for the performers to work with

After a promising start with a nearly wordless opening 15 minutes, Vanishing becomes awfully talky, with far more time spent on the characters' bickering than on them racing to escape the encroaching darkness.
