The legendary David Cronenberg steps out from behind the camera to take a lead role in DISAPPEARANCE AT CLIFTON HILL, a hallucinatory thriller that has now landed a release date.

IFC Midnight has announced that DISAPPEARANCE will appear in theaters and on VOD February 28. Directed by Albert Shin from a script he wrote with James Schultz, the movie also stars Tuppence Middleton, Hannah Gross, Eric Johnson and Marie Josée-Croze. The synopsis: “Following the death of her mother, Abby [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 25 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.”
