Overview

An adopted girl returns to her homeland of Russia to explore the dilapidated mountain farm she has recently inherited, only to discover that it harbors a deadly secret in the feature debut from Aftermath director Nacho Cerdà. Shortly after the mysterious death of her birth mother, young Marie was adopted and brought to live in the United States. When Marie receives word that she has inherited an isolated farm in her native Russia, she soon sets out to explore the vast estate and peel away the thick gauze obscuring her secret-shrouded past. Confounded by the local's refusal to show her to the "damned" locale and determined not to give up after coming this far, Marie convinces a man to take her there only to discover that he has inexplicably vanished shortly after arrival. As Marie sets out to explore the ominous and expansive property alone, a surprise encounter with a man named Boris, who claims to have been lured to the house under similar circumstances, sets into motion a chilling series of events in which the ghosts of the past -- as well as deceased doppelgangers of both Marie and Boris -- prevent the frightened pair from leaving. In the terrifying hours that follow, both of these tormented lost souls will find that sometimes the past is best left forgotten.

Well I assume I wasn't the only one who was looking forward to watching the final 8th of movie of the horrorfest. I'm just glad that it was worth the wait. Definitely one of the better of the group and some unique qualities in story and effects I thought. Grab it if you have the others thats for sure.

I really enjoyed this movie..The storyline kept me at the edge of my seat at times. I seemed to really pull for the characters in this movie, so I was somewhat disappointed with the ending. I do recommend watching it though.

I saw this movie in the theaters when it came out in March a few years ago. Let's just say I'm glad that I saw this movie during the day...and I was on the back row against the wall so no one could come up behind me...and my friend and I were the only people in the theater...Did I mention I saw this movie during the day? I have never described a movie as deliciously horrifying until now. "Horror" movies usually have me laughing or bored, as I have guessed the end. The Abandoned, however, is a very good addition to anyone's horror movie collection. It will have you on the edge of your seat until the end.
