January 12, 2011 - Hayden's Vanishing on 7th Street Still On Demand. - Indie movies tend to get a broad variety of opinions and Vanishing on 7th Street is no different. Some people like their stories explained with endings that tie up all the details. Others find those neat and explained movies too cliche and just wish that sometimes someone wouldn't leave things so tidy. Some may have a hard time with the category of Vanishing on 7th Street. Is it horror, a thriller, an arthouse think piece?
Sometimes atmosphere is a co-star and while lacking in huge special effects, Vanishing is definitely a film that sets a mood and makes it contend with the small ensemble cast. Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo, Jacob Latimore and Taylor Groothuis complement the mood each with their own energy. Subtle. Impactful. Watch this movie in the dark. I dare you.Still available On Demand at iTunes and Amazon.com

The story centers around a group of friends heading into the wilderness for their annual hunting trip only to confront their war torn past and a devilish secret. (Hayden Christensen plays Sean Kotz.)
It looks as if the producers are looking at possible locations in Utah and had a temporarily public Facebook page chronicling the pre-production. From the pictures, it looks like cast and crew will be roughing it but maybe not all the time. Be careful though, there be bears around. (...but I thought it was supposed to be a Wendigo.)
