Absentia is an independent horror movie about a pregnant woman whose husband, Daniel, suddenly reappears after a seven year absence. In the process of helping him come to terms with returning to his life, the film explors the horrors he faced during his disappearance. Rather than relying on large special effects, the director plays with shadows and music to build the suspense to several peaks throughout the 90 minute story. Many of the most intense scenes come from simply walking through a tunnel or hearing a noise from the other room.

The actors sometimes falter in their delivery during the story-building scenes. However, they all give stellar performances in the horror scenes, making you feel the terror that their characters face. In particular, Doug Jones stands out from the rest in his appearance as another victim of the horror that Daniel had faced.

Absentia is an Mystery, Horror, Thriller movie that was released in 2012 and has a run time of 1 hr 31 min. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8.

Absentia is available to watch free on Tubi TV, Hoopla and stream, download, buy on demand at Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, Amazon, iTunes online. Some platforms allow you to rent Absentia for a limited time or purchase the movie and download it to your device.
