The Abandoned (2007)

Directed by Nacho Cerda.  Written by Cerda, Karim Hussain and Richard Stanley.

Plot: A woman goes to Russia to learn about her past.  She meets a twin brother and some creepy apparitions that look just like them.


So, DJ didn’t score this one.  Why?  Because we watched it once before we started this scoring system and we hated it.  So, when I decided to give it another chance, DJ wanted no part of it.  He was the smart one in all this.

This movie makes little to no sense.  It was pointless.  I mean, what was the reasoning here?  Why was that one chick naked all the time?  And I believe that the message was that sometimes it’s better to be abandoned.  What the hell kind of message is that??!!  

Good points: it was creepy.  Also, the effects were pretty good.  But creepy effects can not save a movie by themselves.

My score is 23/100.  Watch it if you want, but don’t blame me when you’re angry after it’s over.


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
