When the city of Detroit is suddenly plunged into complete darkness, a group of strangers will need to band together in Vanishing On 7th Street, debuting on Blu-ray Disc and DVD May 17 from Magnolia Home Entertainment. Directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Session 9) and starring Golden Globeânominee Hayden Christensen (Takers, Jumper), Emmy winner John Leguizamo (The Lincoln Lawyer, The Happening), Thandie Newton (For Colored Girls, 2012) and young R&B sensation Jacob Latimore, Vanishing On 7th Street taps into one of humankind’s most primal anxieties: fear of the dark. As the survivors gather at an abandoned tavern, they realize they have found their enemy in the darkness itself, with only their limited light sources available to keep them out of harms way. With time running out, they must face the horrific terror hiding in the shadows.
“A nicely calibrated mix of intellectual dread and visceral shock,” (MSN Movies), the Vanishing On 7th Street Blu-ray Disc and DVD includes suspenseful bonus features including a making-of featurette and commentary by Anderson. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 and $26.98, respectively.
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
