The Abandoned-2007, Anastasia Hille
Maltin says-American adoptee gets trapped in an endless labyrinth of horror when, after receiving a mysterious invitation, she returns to Russia to learn more about her roots. In her dank, oppressively creepy childhood home, she must confront various evil forces, a murderous clone, and the disturbing secrets of her past. Anybody looking for a coherent narrative will find this throwback to Euro-horror films of the '70s maddening. Fails to build fear and tension, but Cerda fills the screen with enough gorgeous, chilling imagery to satisfy fans of nonlinear horror fare. 2 and a half stars.
I say- I predicted the whole movie within 30 minutes. Good gore scenes save this from being a disaster. In Russia, you haunt ghosts! 2 stars.
