Horror genre icons and fan favourites Tom Savini (Machete; Grindhouse), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Tony Todd (Candyman), David Hess (The Last House On The Left), and Caroline Munro (Maniac; Dracula AD 1972) line up alongside Robyn Griggs (Zombiegeddon), make up and visual effects artist Tom Sullivan (The Evil Dead; Army Of Darkness) and newcomers Richard Conant (Panic Room) and Eric Thornsberry to star in The Absence Of Light, released by MVM on 7th February 2011, the impressive debut feature written, directed, produced and edited by filmmaker-to-watch Patrick Desmond.

Combining elements of sci-fi and horror with the conventions of the conspiracy thriller, The Absence Of Light is a genre-busting trip into a world where unscrupulous political cover-ups, inexplicable 'accidents' and high-tech experiments collide in an apocalyptic showdown on what could prove to be mankind's darkest day.

When covert intelligence agents and assassins-for-hire Puritan (Conant) and Sultan (Thornsberry) become involved in the tangled web of intrigue and blackmail being spun around a corrupt politician vying for re-election to the US Senate, they also find themselves caught in the crossfire between two powerful villains known only as The Higher Power (Savini) and Whiplash (Hess).

At the heart of the conflict is the breakthrough scientific research of a benevolent scientist (Todd), who has developed a method for bioengineering inhuman super-beings that could lead to previously unimaginable medical benefits for the human race. But, realising the value of the project's military potential, The Higher Power and Whiplash are each determined to possess the information with a view to creating their own armies of super-soldiers that will ultimately bring them world domination.

Precariously balanced between good and evil, Puritan and Sultan must choose sides as they become the only ones who can prevent events that could throw the world back to the Stone Age as a new era of darkness is ushered in.
