Modern Ghost Town

Vanishing on 7th Street

One metaphoric minute the citizens of Detroit were there, the next all their clothes and valuables were all that remained on the dirty ground. Cool special effect – I bet it cost them hundreds to pull off.

A few survivors band together and discover that the shadows are really shadow creature things that swallow you whole/you hole. This is indicated by whispering and eerie hand shadow puppets. Again, I’m wondering how they were able to afford that special effect.

The trick to surviving is to stay in the light. Not easy to do when the power is dwindling. The plan is to get out of the city where hopefully the sun shines 24 hours a day.

That’s about it. Vanishing on 7th Street (2011) has no free-range blood, a few curse words (and not very colorful ones), some screaming, and those budget-busting special effects.

I bet everyone is over on 8th Street having a wild party.
