THE EMPTY MAN is a supernatural horror film filled with action, suspense and sheer terror! After teenagers from a small Midwestern town begin to mysteriously vanish, the locals begin to suspect that their disappearances may somehow be tied to a terrifying local legend. Thrust out of retirement, James Lasombra (James Badge Dale), a troubled former cop still reeling from the deaths of his own wife and son, begins to investigate the events that have shaken this community. Things take a bizarre turn when Lasombra discovers a secretive group of occultists who seem to be attempting to bring forth a horrific, mystical entity. Before long, Lasombra realizes that his life — and the lives of those close to him — are in terrible danger in this white-knuckle chiller. THE EMPTY MAN also stars Marin Ireland, Stephen Root, Ron Canada, Robert Aramayo, Joel Courtney and Sasha Frolova. Directed by David Prior from his screen story and screenplay based on Cullen Bunn’s novel.

Bloody violence, some sex in disappointing sci-fi chiller.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Empty Man is a sci-fi/horror movie about a former cop who's investigating the disappearance of a teen girl who took part in an urban legend ritual. Expect plenty of bloody scenes, with stabbing and slicing, punching, and a character getting shot in the head. There's also a dog corpse covered in maggots, characters going over a cliff to their deaths, a scary monster, many creepy moments, and more. There's some nudity in the form of the breasts and bottom of a woman in a steam bath. And there's a sex scene in which a man nuzzles a woman from behind, caresses and kisses her, and then thrusts once from behind (no explicit nudity). Language includes "f--k," "s--t," and more. Characters, including teens, smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol (sometimes lots of it) in more than one scene.
