Storyline

In 1966, somewhere in Russia, a wounded woman drives a truck to an isolated farm with two babies. Forty years later, the film producer Marie Jones leaves her daughter in California and travels back to her home land in the wilderness of Russia. Marie is one of the children and had received a phone call from the notary public Andrei Misharin, who told her where the farm of her family is located. Marie arrives at the abandoned house and meets the stranger Nicolai, who tells her that he had also received a call from Misharin and he is her twin brother. Weird things happen in the house and Marie and Nicolai are haunted by zombie-like ghosts of themselves. Further, they find that they are trapped in the house and can not leave the place. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

the abandoned dolls
16 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

the abandoned is without a doubt one of the most bizarre, beautiful , original and scariest films I have seen in the past few years. I couldn't help but grab onto my seat throughout the entire movie. It's simply unlike anything you have ever seen before. It is a very remarkable film from more than just one viewpoint. In an era where you can only impress young horror fanatics with bucket-loads of blood and gross-out effects, Nacho actually re-teaches his audience that fear is especially caused by suggestion and the absence of explicit images. It is the first intelligent horror film in years, completely relying on atmosphere and eerie set pieces. It's such a relief to finally see a subtle film that is also effective!
