The folks out at Last Night sent a copy of The Absent out for us to review, and I’ll hand it to them, this is some low budget indie horror done RIGHT. It’s been a while since I last had a taste of the sweet low budget indie, and this is some of the finest kind indeed.
The Absent takes us to a small town where a high school science teacher, Vincent Burton, is in the midst of an illicit affair with one of his Science Olympiad stars, who herself is having a few illicit affairs with some of the boys around. But what he doesn’t know is that his brother, Oscar, has recently been released from a prison term he served following the death of their parents. And Oscar knows what Vincent’s been up to. But Oscar’s a loving brother, and he doesn’t want to see Vincent go to prison for statutory rape, so he launches off on an orgy of homicides leading up to his final battle with his brother, where one of them won’t be getting out alive.
The Absent is a great little film–it has terrifically fast pacing, and watches almost like the parts of Misery where the sheriff is tracking down Paul Sheldon, only without all the crazy Annie Wilkes action. It moves so quickly and so carefully that you can’t help but be immersed. Considering that the movie only lasts an hour and twenty minutes, it’s really not surprising that it moves quickly. When I watched it, I found myself marveling at how quickly the first hour had gone by–I scarcely noticed, I was so busy keeping up with the plot, which moved at such a rapid clip it was impossible not to find yourself immersed in it.
It was also the first time, as far as I could remember, that the high school drama of who’s having sex with who would actually turn out to be a plot point.
