Should have vanished before release

So we watched A Vanishing on 7th Street last night. Talk about your strangely weird flicks. We were seriously creeped out by it initially, to the point where I didn't want to go out and pull my car (left in the driveway earlier due to Haste to Open the Wine) into the garage because I was afraid of the dark. Thank goodness for motion-sensitive spotlights. The shadow-beings, the constantly shrinking hours of daylight, the flickering lights and the tension of WHEN WILL THEY GO OUT AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!! were all very well done.

Then we got to the ending and were left all WTF-y. NO resolution at all, vast numbers of questions left unanswered, loose ends raveling everywhere, logic holes abounding. Most vexing. Not surprised it grossed a laughable $22K. What's really sad is that it had great potential -- the shadow-creatures, the creepy soundtrack, etc. -- but it was really poorly executed (and marketed, I guess, since I never heard of it when it came out).

If only Hayden Christiansen had Vanished before he played Anakin Skywalker...
