If you haven’t seen Mike Flanagan’s superb horror film, Absentia, then you are truly missing out. With his new and highly praised Oculus due to scare the living daylights out of UK cinema goers from 13th June, if you are not already aware of the directors work, then Abesentia is your starting point.
The classic 2011 horror film is finally getting a well deserved Blu-ray release here in the UK on July 7th, and my advice is if you are a horror fan, then your add this to your wishlist right now!
The Press Release:
One of the most frightening films of recent years, Mike Flanagan’s critically acclaimed Absentia makes its UK Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films. A new DVD release is on its way as well, with both hitting stores on 7 July.
Tricia’s (Courtney Bell) husband, Daniel, has been missing for seven years, and with the help of her sister, Callie (Katie Parker), she finally declares him legally dead ‘in absentia.’ As Tricia tries to move on with her life, she becomes haunted by terrifying visions, while Callie is strangely drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house with links to other unexplained disappearances.
Does the key to Daniel’s fate lie in the cold darkness of the tunnel, and could the truth be something far worse than death?
