When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire citys population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

Vanishing On 7th Street
This review is from: Vanishing on 7th Street (Amazon Instant Video) This movie is a definite must see!! It kept me scared and freaked out throughout the whole movie! Horror/thriller movies are my favorites and this one is sooo awesome! Hayden is my favorite actor and he was amazing in it! As Thandie, John and Jacob were great too!! I can't wait for this movie to come out in the theaters and on DVD...I will definitely be going to see it again and buying it when it comes out!!! HAYDEN ROCKS!!!

A Complete Waste of Time
This movie was an absolute waste of time - People disappearing andleaving no clues, just clothing. Where did they go? No explanations,just hazy shadows out to get you in the dark. What were they? Souls?Demons? Who cares. How did everyone know from the get-go it was thedark that was dangerous ? There was no closure at all. Not frighteningin the least. The continual darkness was sinister at first, but it soonbecame just an irritation to watch. As maddening as the ending to"Picnic At Hanging Rock" was, at least "Picnic..." was well shot indaylight with great scenery. Vanishing on 7th Avenue was just dark anddrab. What a waste of beautiful,talented Thandie Newton and the talentsof John Leguizamo. The ONLY redeeming thing about this experience wasthat I didn't pay money to see it.

I never shut a movie off early or skip scenes but I did skip a few chapters in this one. The movie started out pretty good but then it got so slow and I couldnt wait for it to be over.

Vanishing on 7th Street's trailer looked decent enough. Unfortunately, that's ALL it had going for it. I have stated many times before that the audience in ANY horror/thriller movie sometimes is asked to suspend logic, but I think ANY audience deserves a few answers--even fleeting ones. None exist in this movie.It begins with four different main characters coming to the realization that they may be the only people left in this City because everyone else has vanished. All that is left behind are piles of clothing. That brought me to question one: why did they survive? They then spend a good amount of time stumbling and mumbling through various and sundry situations, which brings me to question 2: was this the ONLY city that had experienced a "vanishing"? You are then treated to more and more scenes of utter stupidity and the constant chanting of "I exist; I exist" until they all start to be picked off by the "shadow people." This led me to my next set of questions: why couldn't they find some generators at a local store and have all the lights they wanted? Why couldn't they light (and keep lit) a fire? Why did they STAY in that City? And last (but certainly not least) WHY DID I WASTE MY TIME?Other reviewers have hinted at this movie's potential. I'm just not sure that it ever HAD any potential. I didn't really care for the majority of the survivors and they all continued to make such stupid, moronic choices I was actually rooting for the shadows!Rated R for, hmmmmm, I don't know what for.

Turn out the lights and fall asleep
Starts quite interesting (a bit like the Langoliers) but gets boringafter about half an hour, and continues in the same way with thecharacters and the plot stumbling around in the dark with no directionat all. The plan was half-baked and anyway how do you escape from "adarkness"? There was no ending and no explanation, a little bit ofcharacter building, but you would have happily sacrificed any of themto find out what was actually going on. Watch the first half hour, andat that point if you start getting bored, don't expect it to get anybetter, because it won't, just turn it off. Shame you can't givenegative votes.

I want my time back
The director/writers/producer of this movie committed the ultimate betrayal to a movie audience. They had no idea of how to explain any of the odd circumstances they created or how to end a story that was in desperate need of a conclusion. Total waste of time and energy. For shame.

Too Often Leaves Us in the Dark
This film starts with an eerie and inventive premise. It leaves a more haunting, memorable trail than most movies in the genre. But in between its first and its lasting impressions, it somewhat loses its way in the dark.Too much goes unexplained. For example, we see John Leguizamo stranded in his darkened movie theater one minute - then we next see him lying battered and bruised in an illuminated bus stop shelter. What happened to get him there? In his commentary, Director Anderson says that there was some scripting that would have explained Leguizamo's trajectory, but a variety of constraints prevented this explanation from becoming part of the film. Actually, Anderson thought this was all to the good though - that some things were best left to the imagination. I'm not so sure about that. It seems Leguizamo's navigation of the engulfing, vanquishing night would have been one of the processes most interesting to watch. Without showing such process, the film too often ends up being just abrupt, choppy, and undeveloped.It also has too many lapses of logic. The creeping darkness doesn't play fair. It shifts its rules of engagement, overwhelming one person, while allowing another similarly situated person to survive, at least for a while. Well, that could be an additional aspect of the evil of the darkness. It toys randomly with its victims, like a cat may or may not toy with a mouse, sheerly on a whim.Then I had one of my common technical complaints about this film. The DVD often projected as an indecipherable smudge on my TV screen. So it ran as murky rather than sinisterly dark. There is something about the final lighting/filtering process that many modern filmmakers use that causes their movies to be a chore to watch on home TV's. I wish filmmakers would get back to whatever technology was used from the 1920's through the 1960's that allows their films to play as appropriately shaded rather than just obscure when run on a TV screen.The Director's commentary doesn't add a lot to a viewer's appreciation of the film. Brad Anderson starts out sounding too much like Ben Stein, making a dreary, nasal drone of his narrative. So unless you have a lot of spare time, you can probably skip the commentary and most of the other extras, except for the interviews.However the Director's commentary does highlight at least one telling aspect of this film and its making. Anderson talks about how apt it was to settle on Detroit as a location for the action. The City itself is perhaps the most fascinating character in the entire movie. It becomes an icon of our crumbling economy, our crumbling culture. Some of the scenes in the movie call for shots of major urban intersections shown desolate, abandoned, post-apocalyptic. Anderson said that he hardly had to clear Detroit's streets and highways of cars and people for these scenes. They are already so often eerily null. So many buildings are already hollow, echoing shells of once vital industries. These shots in and of themselves served as chilling prognostications of what can in reality befall all our cheery, oblivious bustle.So this movie is overall worth watching - for its darkling premise, and for its stunning views of Detroit.

So Very Average!
Right, I love all the actors in this movie and i love the principal andthe suggestion of this movie BUT and a really big but!!! the movie isawful, the acting is of a decent standard but the special effects areterrible, the main story line is hollow and of no real substance! thedark was simply that, it took me three days to re-adjust to the light!The Ending was incredible, well incredibly climatic Not! I would notrecommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies, however the Bmovie lover would be right at home! just thinking of the specialeffects again! deplorable, a first year IT designer could do better,damn my grandmother could do better!

horror horrible movie it sux
Ok all of us have seen our share of yet another done to death story about what goes on in the dark when the lights go out .Poor attempt at horror and actors who really try and work with the storys that goes no-were.Dialog .whats that ? This film is far worse than the all time stinker "Robot Monster ' a Guy in an ape suit with a space helmet on .Again nothing here to see and its never going to be a cult film Perhaps lining for a bird cage .Im the little ole lady thats seen just about everything and thats the game .Im outta here

Slow moving, decent acting, but no resolution in the end. I would put it in the B-rating for horror/sci-fi movies.

A plea for chain-smoking and the art of cinema
The Dark comes to claim life. Almost everybody disappears; only thosewith a source of light on or just around them escape that fate, and wehave four or five, depending on your view, people that escape thatfate, that is a projection supervisor in a cinema (a fine and promisingbeginning, for all those who like self-reflexivity in the cinematicmedium) with a light-band on his head, a man surrounded by candlesafter a failed romantic evening, a boy with a toy-car with its lightson, and a woman who went outside to have a smoke.The film has its moments but in such a premise it is difficult not tohave some holes that have escaped script and premise supervision - thatis the obvious ones: is this a loveless city without any other havingamorous candles lit around him or her during the night? Was this womanthe only one having a cigarette? This ironically makes the film a pleafor chain-smoking in disguise, a plea for candle companies and lovelyevenings around the world, if not just plain incendiary. It surely hassome kind of prehistoric feel, in just this aspect, maybe: as if nobodyin the film (except towards the end) has invented fire (I will pass thesuper-underdeveloped diminishing of the sun's path).Which anyway is extinguished the moment the little girl talks in thevery end: she is obviously an hysterically pro child actor for anyeerie effect to take hold, so the last shot which obviously aims forb-movie cult status, has only some Charlton Heston badness in it.

Deserves More Credit
***SLIGHT SPOILERS**** This review may have a few things from themovie, but nothing that gives the whole story away. ****SLIGHTSPOILERS***** Some people here need an explanation for everything thathappens in every movie, all nicely laid out for them in a bullet pointplot summary so they can wax intellectual about it with their friendsdown at the coffee shops. This movie left a lot to the imagination, anddidn't give an explanation at the end. Well boo-hoo if that's not goodenough for you, but I, on the other hand, love a good mystery or astory about unexplained events. This movie was pretty intense all theway through, grabs you quickly in the start and pulls you in. Whereasthe special effects were nothing spectacular, it really doesn't takemuch to make moving darkness look good. It did what they needed it todo, and it works. If you don't like it, go watch Avatar again, get yourfx fix there. This movie flowed well, the actors did a good job,especially the kids, and the ending was good. It could of been ahorrible ending, they could of Tried to explain what was going on, andit would of been sooo thin and over-used it would of Totally ruined themovie. Imagine Hayden finding out that it's Another top secretgovernment experiment gone horribly wrong. OMG that would of beenhorrible, and would of made me hate this movie.**SLIGHT SPOILER**** - Plus, it is Supposed to be unexplained, as JohnL.'s character explains from the story in his book. Why would it of notbeen explained back then but all of a sudden be explained now? Noteverything in life makes sense, not everything is Explained. It JustHappens, deal with it.The most unbelievable part of this movie was the girl working behindthe popcorn stand at the movie theater in the beginning. When was thelast time you saw a girl even remotely that hot working a popcornstand? That's what I thought. =P

The Ultimate Movie Review! - httptss5078.blogspot.com
Vanishing On 7th Street had a lot of possibilities, but it was done sonarrow-mindedly, that the film just becomes a complete waste of time.First, we are rushed into the heart of the story, without anybackground or character development. Then, within twenty minutes, we'rethrown ahead three days, leaving us with many questions that are neveranswered. Finally, after an hour of typical frantic people stuck in animpossible situation, we get an ending that just doesn't fit. I wasattracted to this film by its clever title and by Hayden Christensen,who I believe to be a very underrated actor, but I was highlydisappointed. Vanishing On 7th Street is rushed, sloppy, predictable,and full of plot holes. To me this seemed more like a rough draft thana full length feature film, it really just wasn't very good.

While parts of the movie peaked my interest, overall, it was verydisappointing. A vague plot, poor script, weak effects and actorstrying their best to make it work. Too bad they failed. A movie withthis premise has great potential, it can lead the viewer down a pathand let the audience intellectually fill in the blanks. In order forthat to occur, the movie itself must provide the plot points, thematerial that that allows, and draws the viewer to want to connect thedots and create, so to speak, their own movie within a movie. I justgave up, and so, apparently, did the filmmakers. I won't gave awayanything, because there really isn't anything to tell.

Run! From the theater that is
I got a sneak peak at this before it hits theaters. I am so glad I did not pay money for this. I wouldn't go see it if it were free. I cannot believe Hayden and Thandie made this horrid movie. No plot really and nothing ever happens...not even at the end. You walk away going what was it about and what did it mean? You never get an answer and nothing in the end helps you figure it out. I was bored the entire time WAITING for something to actually happen.

Perhaps if the movie had bigger names??
I just finished watching this unknown movie in my world, quite Pleased w/Vanishing on 7th St. ... Obviously, this movie has plenty of Mixed Reviews. I personally thought it was quite well done. Perhaps if bigger names had been attached; the reviews would have been less mixed.

Interesting but feels unfinished
This movie is really mysterious and starts with great promise - peopledisappearing in the darkness - well, this is frightening. It is not toological - some things do happen but somehow contradicts the story logic(ie. small girl with solar powered flashlight somehow survives even ifthere is mentioned that the Sun rises only for a few hours, hardly torecharge the flashlight).All right. I'm willing to accept even less logical movies like Japanesehorror movies which often do not respect time or actual causality.However these movies usually do try to explain what his happening andwhy it is happening (with several theories how to resolve thesituation, often wrong).But there is hardly any explanation here, only "signs" which may beinterpreted in many ways. The ending is sudden, hardly explainsanything and left me unsatisfied. Is the happening local or global? Isit transitory or final? Is it demonic or end of the world caused byGod? The movie focuses on (not too successful) attempts to survive butprovides way too few answers. The feeling is depressing, which is good,but I really lack the climax. The ending was somehow abrupt andunsatisfactory. I like it, but it is only "good", not "great".

I Wish The Darkness Would Have Consumed Me After 5 Mins!
Well there is 92 minutes i will never get back, even accounting for theobvious biblical references thrown in to the story of which unless youra true religious nut (am not), you would need to check up on to makethis film even remotely plausible this is one of the worst non storiesi have ever watched. It starts with the mysterious disappearance ofmovie theatre goers after a black out revealing just the clothes of thenow departed souls and to be honest doesn't get much better from there.Thandie Newton does her best to drag it along but in all honesty shemust have been on something to sign up for this. You end up almosthating a teen boy (although not the actors fault as he acts it well) ashe causes 2 deaths through complete stupidity. I don't know what thewriter and director were thinking but please make it stop, my head ishurting with this utter garbage

91 minutes of boredom
Watch this movie if you have 91 minutes of your life to throw away. Otherwise, give this one a miss.Imagine an hour and a half of shadows that are supposed to be terrifying; unexplainable "vanishings" of characters into those shadows; inconsistent protection by light and ability of the spooky, bad and nasty shadows to shut out the lights; and a whole host of tedious characters. That, in essence, is this film. If that sounds thrilling to you, well then, you may enjoy this film. If that sounds like a nap inducer, then you'll be bored stiff at this snoozer.When the world is hit with an unknown force that sucks everyone without a light source (flashlight, headlamp, candle, etc.) into an unknown shadow world, a handful of survivors meet at a bar. They whine, freak out, plot their escape, and get sucked into shadow world, one by one, until only two kids and a horse remain. The two kids ride off into the sunset on their plodding pony, heading for another enclave of survivors. Whether the shadow world is actually bad or not; why the shadows didn't blow out the candles for one of the main characters when they can easily do it later on; why so much that happens does happen, we never know. That, you understand, is spooky. And frightening. And really scary.Yeah, I don't think so either.1/5 stars, for a boring waste of time.
