Based on your recommendation, I caught it tonight via DVR & The Movie Channel! OMFG! My review...

ABSENTIA (2011) Directed by Mike Flanagan. Innovative, intelligent, baffling little indie psychothriller centering around a seemingly widowed pregnant Los Angeles suburbanite (Courtney Bell) who reconnects with her troubled younger sister (Katie Parker in a star-making role) as she legally declares her long-missing husband deceased (hence the title) while embarking on a new relationship with the missing persons detective (and father of her unborn child) assigned to said dead spouse’s cold case. Supernatural events, most prominently the specter and “resurrection” of the departed title character, plague the estranged siblings who discover that his vanishing act is linked to a neighborhood tunnel that holds a historical significance to several other lost souls connected to the movie's central mystery. Downbeat, challenging, mind-bending horror movie that leaves the viewer wanting more as there are no easy answers in the bewildering finale! Katie Parker’s superb performance as the younger sister who investigates the mysterious goings-on ranks right up there with similar female siblings in the genre who “take over” the film like Vera Miles in PSYCHO and Rose McIver in THE LOVELY BONES! She’s that good! Watch your back, Jennifer Lawrence! This chick’s a keeper! My grade: an A for ABSENTIA!

So glad that I could share this find with another horror fan, it was my favorite horror film of 2011 and ranks right up there with some of the best horror I've even seen. The director made the film on around $70,000 bucks on a digital still camera.. I can't wait to see what he could do with a bigger budget.

BEST
01. Drive
02. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
03. Attack the Block
04. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
05. Source Code

WORST
01. Red State
02. Transformers: Dark of the Moon
03. Sucker Punch
04. I Am Number Four
05. Scream 4

This is based on all of the films Arrow In The Head reviewed last year, so it's their criteria determining what I put on my list.

This is the kind of originality that most horror films are lacking!!! Loved it! Can't wait for his next film!
