I've already seen 347 movies from 2006, so the majority of what I have to watch this go around are the bottom of the barrel offerings. This may be the hardest stack of movies to get through out of any year. With that in mind, I start my 2006 stack with...

 

 

The Absence of Light - Extremely low budget action/sci-fi feature about a scientist who discovers "the meaning of life". Two shadow government organizations want his secrets, so another group hires two "burned-out assassins" to protect the scientist. Several B-movie regulars show up, including Tony Todd, David Hess, Tom Savini, Michael Berryman, and Caroline Munro.
