The Vanishing on 7th Street is a new horror film making the rounds of the festival circuit (starting with Toronto in September) from director Brad Anderson, whose resume includes the creepfests Session 9 (2001) and The Machinist (2004). Starring Hayden Christensen—when was the last time he headlined anything?—the film is like a mashup of the current post-apocalypse genre; think Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later meets I Am Legend and you’ll have the general idea. Other cast includes Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo (of the also post-apocalyptic “The Happening).

Mark this down as one to catch, because even if it turns out to be terrible it looks like a good time.
