The Absence of Light  (2006)

Horror heavyweights Tom Savini, David Hess, Tony Todd, Caroline Munro, and Michael Berryman headline director Patrick Desmond's supernatural shocker about a pair of agents (Richard Conant and Eric Thornsberry) on a mission to prevent the apocalypse. A respected researcher is on the verge of engineering the perfect soldier - a synthetic humanoid with superhuman strength - but there are forces at work that would use his scientific breakthrough for the powers of darkness. Should agents "Puritan" and "Sultan" fail to restore the balance between good and evil, a new era of darkness will soon be ushered in.

This isn’t storytelling for the meek, this is hardcore thought provoking and complex. The world that Desmond creates has murky dangerous corners and bad things can hide in those corners, things we all know exist and just don’t want to talk about.    So, what’s the bottom line on The Absence Of Light? It is a well crafted, well paced freshman effort from a man who we are all going to be talking about for years to come. The Absence Of Light shines brightly as does the future for Patrick Desmond and New Illusion Pictures.

“One of the most ambitious independent films I’ve seen in a long time.”
