Abandoned dead is a story of a police officer being assigned on a haunted drug clinic, no one knows what awaits her there.
Abandoned dead is a horror story about a newly vested guard on a psychiatric facility. This setup of the movie would give you the same feeling when you played "Five nights at Freddy's", the fear that you know there is something to fear but at the same time does not know what would happen next. The story would really get into turns and twists that would take different routes in the story. It does not even give you hints what would happen next. The story can truly be said to be unforeseeable and deceptive. The suspense in the movie is straight out killing it. It hooks well in the start of the suspense and thrill and it is carefully placed and triggered that you would not anticipate it nor prepare yourself. The suspense also does not hung you up with the previous scene but continually builds up until the next suspense scene. It does not leave you comfortable and relaxed about what will happen in the story. The props used in the film were also great, they were both icky and creepy at the same time. Cinematography was the key to every horror suspense movie because if the cinematography does not go well, it may not scare so much even if the story is scary. Cinematography may break the films potential to success. This story however had great cinematography, they used the color palettes well. They have used different camera angles that you would not have watched from previous horror film before. You could see an example of this new angle and panning on the scene when the guard was on the guard house right before the pizza delivery guy knocks which you would have forgotten and would have thought that another scary scene taking place. Mostly, the story line in horror films would have been disregarded and that most would focus on the cinematography and suspense for the part of the viewer. This movie however, did not throw this over board and continually built up on the story which may also be the cause of the viewer's being surprised on what would happen next. There will be also sketchy characters being introduced in the middle of the story. The story also was very misleading, the writers would drop now and then out of the blue suspense parts that would shock the viewer even more finding it is connected to the story after all. Sound effects and background music was also great in this movie. The sound used when the suspense part is starting was not that that would make you guess when it would peak. They also made a truly eerie background music that takes effect in the dark parts of the movie. The cliché part like the radio also made an effect that contributes to the eerie background. The movie does follow the standard up and down peaks of a story that makes it interesting and effective. It was very misleading and that it would not prepare you what happens next. Let me say finally, that if you want to be puzzled and scared, you should definitely watch this movie for it would really give you both.
