Albert Shin’s ‘Disappearance at Clifton Hill’ plays out like an immersive experience come to life on screen as a complicated and intriguing mystery. With strong performances from Tuppence Middleton and a great cameo from David Cronenberg it keeps you engaged the whole way through.
So what the hell is this film all about? Following the death of her mother, Abby (Tuppence Middleton), a troubled young woman with a checkered past, returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls and the dilapidated motel her family used to run. While there, she finds herself drawn once again into a mystery that has haunted her since childhood: what happened to the young boy she saw being violently abducted in the woods twenty-five years ago?
As Abby sets out to find out the truth, she must confront both a shocking, long-buried conspiracy that runs as deep as the falls themselves as well as her own inner demons. Bristling with an air of surreal menace, this mood-drenched thriller is a tantalizing psychological puzzle box that unfolds in the hallucinatory realm between reality and perception.
