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

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

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.

Stephen Whitty

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I didn't have that high of expectations going in, but I thought I'd give it a shot since Brad Anderson directed it. My low expectations weren't… More
