It centers on a young woman whose husband disappered seven years earlier. She is pregnant and is finalising the process to have him declared legally dead. Her sister arrives in town to help her in the coming months when strange things start happening in and around the freeway underpass at the end of the street.
I cannot recommend this film highly enough, it is a superb story, well acted and directed and has an atmosphere of impending doom that is palpable. I liked it so much I've been chatting to the director via email in recent times, great bloke. He has been given some big dollars to make his next film and Absentia did well in some of the horror festivals from what I've heard. Check it out, you won't regret it.
I can also recommend a film called "KILL LIST" that I caught in recent times. Although it's dressed up as a ganster-type film it's a horror movie through and through.. you have to watch it to understand what I mean. It's gaining a cult-following very quickly.
Right on about Absentia, Chris, it truly was an awesome movie!
