First look at the shrieking shadow monsters from The Vanishing on 7th Street

We've got an exclusive clip from Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo's new movie The Vanishing on 7th Street. The rules are: Stay in the light or these creepy shrieking beasts will grab you in the dark. Watch!

Any movie that plays like the childhood game of hot lava is awesome in our books. Basically we love all movies that deal with odd rules, don't let your adrenaline run out, shock your heart every so minutes to keep it working, don't go to sleep, don't go below 50 mph (can you name all those films) and especially stay in the light. Here's the official synopsis:

"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. A small handful of strangers that have survived the night (Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo and newcomer Jacob Latimore) each find their way to a rundown bar, whose gasoline-powered generator and stockpile of food and drink make it the last refuge in a deserted city. 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. As time begins to run out for them, darkness closes in and they must face the ultimate terror."


And here is another (and pretty horrific) clip from Bloody Disgusting.

The Vanishing on 7th Street is directed by Brad Anderson. The film will be available on Amazon, in Demand, and on iTunes February February 18th. It will also have a limited theatrical release.

This premise is so f'king stupid it boggles the mind. Think about it...between your clothes and your skin is darkness. Inside your bowels...darkness. Under your armpits....darkness.

You can't escape the absence of the visual spectrum. Besides...why wouldn't these darkness things also come out in UV or IR wavelengths?

I know, I'm no fun.
