 Absentia

Here’s the incredibly creepy trailer for Absentia, from the Director of Oculus Mike Flanagan. This is one of my favourite stories from HeyUGuys history – where an email from a new director comes in asking us to check out a trailer leads to us discovering a huge talent.

It was great to see Flanagan upping his game with Oculus this year as in Absentia you can see roots of the horror the director unleashed on us with a bigger budget. Absentia tells the horrifying fallout of a missing person’s mystery with some very nice visual scares and a deep sense of foreboding.

Check out the trailer, then do see the film.

 

Why so scary?

The encounter in the basement, and the unseen figure in the background. So simple, so effective.

Bonus: Oculus trailer

Here’s what the director got up to next. Not as creepy, but certainly has its moments.
