The Abandoned Film Poster


Horror in which an American film producer named Marie (Anastasia Hille) returns to her homeland, Russia, after being summoned by a mysterious lawyer. Marie never knew her mother or father, having been adopted and brought to America as a baby. The only clue to what might have happened is an isolated, abandoned farm in the mountains that supposedly belonged to her natural parents. Being the only next of kin, she inherits the farm, but no one will take her there as local superstitions state that the area is 'damned'. Only one man will embark on such a dangerous and long journey but once they arrive, the guide mysteriously disappears, forcing Marie to explore the place alone. She discovers someone else on the property, a man named Nikolai (Karel Roden), who claims to have been lured there in exactly the same manner. They become stranded in the compound, plagued by terrifying, ghostly visions. Most troubling of all is the fact that the ghosts that wander around are their own. Time begins to move in reverse as history re-lives itself in front of their very eyes, while both their ghosts, illustrating exactly how they will die, patiently wait for their living counterparts to expire. A cycle of horror comes full circle as the reason they have been summoned for this perverse reunion is finally revealed.
