Believe it or not, fetal abduction is a real and pretty horrifying crime, but what happens if an unborn baby goes missing for causes that are perhaps otherworldy? That's the question co-writer and director Jimmy Loweree asks with his debut found footage horror "Absence." And with the movie on its way to theaters we've got an exclusive teaser and clip from the movie to take you into its chilling premise.

Believe it or not, fetal abduction is a real and pretty horrifying crime, but what happens if an unborn baby goes missing for causes that are perhaps otherworldy? That's the question co-writer and director Jimmy Loweree asks with his debut found footage horror "Absence." With the movie on its way to theaters, we've got an exclusive teaser and clip to introduce you to its chilling premise.

Starring Erin Way, Eric Matheny, Ryan Smale and Stephanie Scholz, the film tells the story of Liz, who one day wakes to find her nearly-to-term pregnancy disappear overnight. While the police are investigate the incident as a missing child case and only her husband, Liz's husband Rick and her brother, Evan listen to her version of what happened, and start looking for answers of their own, leading to an unforgettable trip where none of them are safe. Below you'll see Liz talking about her missing child, followed by a scene where she's mysteriously found alone in the midst of a forest.

"Absence" opens at the Quad Cinema in New York, and the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, OH on Friday, July 5th.
