The Vanishing ★★★★½

Hooptober 5 (2018) - #9

I was not prepared for this, and it left a mark.

A uniquely poignant foray into the nature of human psychosis and evil that feels fresh even all these years later in an era enamored with true crime stories.

If a sociopathic monster can look normal and act normal, can lead a seemingly normal life and go home to normal family, how faint is the line between good and evil? How can you know when you slip over it? How much darkness exists deeply and quietly within us all and what keeps it buried? If we don’t face it, can it ever really die?
