On the third day of darkness, Paul appears in the street, suffering from a severe concussion.
Pic’s equivocal ending is totally unsatisfying, and it begs a sequel. God is dead. This movie slapped me from a direction I did not expect.
It could of been a horrible ending, they could of Tried to explain what was going on, and it would of been sooo thin and over-used it would of Totally ruined the movie. James cowers in the church under the glow of candles which slowly start to burn out. I liked the reference to the "lost colony"-case, a historical oddity concerning the unresolved vanishing of a group of early settlers in America. Pic is scheduled to go direct to video on demand on 7 January 2011, where unsuspecting, bleary-eyed people who might otherwise be tempted by a shopping channel will order it only to fall asleep or regret staying awake until the end. It’s clear from the conspicuous reversal of the titular names that Gretel & Hansel hopes to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack right from the get-go, but does it actually do the job, or are you better off spending 90 minutes of your time on some other film? Vanishing on 7th Street is based on a screenplay by Anthony Jaswinski and is produced from Herrick Entertainment. It could be because the script is no t the best part of the movie.
Then he walks on the mall and finds only empty clothing on the alleys. I understood everything in the movie except these 2 things.

OK - let me start by saying this isn't a BAD film. Paul tells them about the mystery of the Roanoke Colony, where over a hundred settlers disappeared overnight, and they seem to be experiencing the same thing. It’s a classic formula for a horror movie that’s no doubt familiar for many genre fans. The special effects were pretty good - not supreme top-notch, but perfect for the atmosphere this movie invokes. Paul tells them about the mystery of the Roanoke Colony, where over a hundred settlers disappeared overnight, and they seem to be experiencing the same thing.
That part is left to the viewers imagination. While i'm sure the the writers wanted to leave an air of mystery at the end, there was just too little build up in between. Unexplained disappearance left Unexplained, A really creepy idea and scary movie, for about ten minutes, then drags and gets repetitive.

And, I agree.
It's the same old story, only put out in a different way. While The New York Times, for instance, praised Anderson's direction, it faulted the story for having a promising start only to stumble later, finally culminating with a disappointing ending. © 2020 The Hollywood Reporter This article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License.

Effects are close to amateur in their execution and incredibly repetitive.
I couldn't really see any point that was supposed to be made. One by one, in increasingly unbelievable situations — such has getting a truck started by hooking it’s DC battery to an AC generator, which in the real world would cause an explosion (heck, while it lasts at least there would be plenty of light) — the protagonists vanish, until there are two (guess who) left. ***SLIGHT SPOILERS**** This review may have a few things from the movie, but nothing that gives the whole story away.

He and Rosemary go into the street to retrieve one of the abandoned trucks. From director Brad Anderson comes Vanishing on 7th Street, a terrifying, apocalyptic thriller that taps into one of humankind’s most primal anxieties: fear of the dark. Do we hear nothing as yet of the noise of the gravediggers who are burying God? The film, directed by Brad Anderson, proudly proclaims it was shot entirely in Detroit, presumably because that’s one major American city center that can look depressed and deserted without much effort by a film crew.
We would not know that most of pic is set in Detroit except for the press materials. Vanishing on 7th Street is yet another film by Brad Anderson which made me actually think about the premise and appreciate the storytelling represented within the film itself. Eventually Rosemary, projectionist Paul, and a little girl (Briana, played by Taylor Groothuis) who is either very lucky with light sources or has some kind of mystical power, also find their way to the bar — just ahead of the shadows.
| James, wearing a glow-stick necklace, is safe, but Paul vanishes. It comes on like some steady fever dream horror from a child's nightmare. As Paul investigates, his headlamp goes out as well. Strangely these, things, can turn off any light they want apart from when it deviates from the ridiculous storyline (what there was of it), and the addition of momentary dogma from one character, which was quickly forgotten, is a tragic if not rife Hollywood device which never goes anywhere. Horror icons like Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael Myers (Halloween), or Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th) are so highly recognizable, that they’re pretty much synonymous with the mere concept of a horror movie. Shown in only six theaters across the United States, Vanishing on 7th Street was a total theatrical flop.

About Our Ads An unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain—surrounded by heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows.
Indeed if this is the Rapture, shouldn’t their disappearance be cause for celebration?
The film is designed more to tease audiences as the edges of darkness creep ever more closely to its few characters. The idea was pretty creepy, and it is tons better then "The Happening", although the story line was pretty similar.  The shooting began on October 12, 2009 in Detroit. Only heaps of empty clothing remain where the people had been. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself, and only the few remaining light sources can keep them safe.
After waking up to an empty city Luke (Christensen) and a small group of survivors try to find a way to escape.
, The score is composed by Spanish song writer and composer Lucas Vidal and is his first theatrical feature film soundtrack, with songs written and executively produced by Howard Herrick.

Still, as it the movie itself was OK(I guess) and is deserving of its 6 rating. All successful stories have a start, a middle and an end. Ironic; film about absence of meaning gets bashed for lack of meaning. (Note to VOD auds: Leave a nightlight on while watching.) Personally i don't see this as poor writing, but intentional. All the trappings of a horror film without any real horror or jolts.
Vanishing on 7th Street is missing the 'end'. He reveals that he had been taken by the darkness, but his headlamp had re-activated and he reappeared. Luke explains that it is eleven in the morning, implying that the sun is no longer providing light.
By the time Vanishing reaches cinema theaters, its already small audience may have vanished as well since the Magnet release will be available On Demand six weeks prior. Pretty good effort, much better than 5/10 stars!!! Just wait for the ending. Too bad they failed.
