Disappearance at Clifton Hill is a superb film, directed by Albert Shin. Shin created a great slow-burn mystery. Some of our readers may be turned off by the pacing of the film and with it not being a full-blown horror film like most of our readers want. It’s still an edge of your seat mystery thriller.
Tuppence Middleton really gives a strong performance as Abby, a troubled woman with a checkered past. The film also works out as a fictional true-crime story which is my bread and butter, it works gorgeously here. David Cronenberg also gives a great supporting turn here and should be recognized for his acting in more films, he was really underrated in Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.
The film never struggles with it’s pacing as it knows through and through it’s a slow-burn film. As I previously said if you hate slow-burn films you should stay away but fans of mystery thrillers should have a thrill with this film.
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
