Must admit, this is the first we're hearing about ABSENCE, but now that the poster has premiered (via The Hollywood Reporter), and a release date has been announced, we'll be keeping tabs on the disappearing fetus thriller. That's right: a disappearing fetus!

The film is the directorial debut of Jimmy Loweree. Here's the plot:

ABSENCE stars Erin Way (Alphas) as an expectant mother who wakes up to discover that her pregnancy has disappeared overnight. Along with her husband (Eric Matheny) and her brother (Ryan Smale), she travels to the mountains to find out what happened to her unborn baby.

Doncha hate it when that happens?!

Co-written by Loweree and Jake Moreno, ABSENCE will be distributed by Cinedigm; it hits theaters in New York on July 5; additional theaters should be announced soon.

I like the premise. It is somewhat original. It places a question in the potential viewer's mind. What has occurred? A person has to see Absence to find out. How could a fetus disappear? A person must see Absence to find out. Did aliens take the baby? was the baby a spirit in the material world? was it a miscarriage about which the mother is in denial? was the mother never pregnant in the first place? should the mother keep looking for the lost fetus because it didn't just get up and walk away?

A person must see Absence to find out.

So, Absence does have a promising premise. Now, the film-makers just need to do everything that fulfills the premise and script's promise. Otherwise, Absence might be just a piece of shit with a good initial idea and a suggestive poster.

I won't hog the Spitting Bullets section. But, look at the poster. Doesn't the mama look like she's doing a facepalm: "Oh shit! Where did I misplace the fetus?!" That's kinda funny.
