This Friday, Indie Cinema Lives in Hamilton! ABSENTIA
Horror in the Hammer is proud to present ABSENTIA. Fright Night Theater only $5!!
25 Dundurn St N. BESIDE the Staircase Theater Friday December 2nd. Come down to the Indie Theater to see this genuinely creepy thriller .
Synopsis: Tricia's husband has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him 'dead in absentia.' As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that his presumed death might be anything but 'natural.' Soon it becomes clear that the ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia ... and that Tricia's husband might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.
Production: "Absentia" is the inaugural feature film of Fallback Plan Productions, co-founded by Morgan Peter Brown and Justin Gordon. Initial funding for the project was achieved through an ambitious (and hugely popular) Kickstarter.com campaign, in which the film raised 156% of its stated $15,000 goal in 30 days.
After private investors stepped in to fully fund the project, the film went into production in June, 2010 and shot for 15 days in Glendale, Los Angeles, and Orange County, CA.
Principal photography was conducted with the Canon 5d Mii, and the movie was edited on Final Cut Pro 7.
