If any mention of strange goings on at Niagara Falls mostly brings to mind weirdos in barrels and a Marilyn Monroe thriller, prepare yourself for some eerie shocks with Disappearance At Clifton Hill.
Abby (Tuppence Middleton) is just a child when she sees a boy with one eye gouged out, hiding in a wood near her home. He’s grabbed by a couple and taken away in a car, and she never tells her parents.
As a young woman she returns to her home town, Niagara Falls, after her mother’s death – and staying alone in her mum’s dilapidated motel starts to investigate the boy’s disappearance.
It co-stars David Cronenberg AND is apparently based on an experience from director and co-writer Albert Shin’s own childhood, which means my expectations for Disappearance at Clifton Hill are higher than the Falls themselves.
It’s released on digital on 20 July and on DVD on 3 August in the UK. My review is coming next week!
