The setting is the creepiest house you've ever seen. I was scared as soon as the main character arrives on the grounds of the old family house she has inherited. This was one of the few movies that actually had me hiding under the covers as I watched.
The story was unsettling, the direction and cinematography were excellent. I loved it.
The gloomy, yet sharply rendered imagery from cinematographer Xavi Gimenezs (The Machinist) adds to grim terror experienced by our protagonists, as does the jangling dissonance of the original score by Alfons Conde.
While I will admit I was pretty bored during the middle of the movie (I don't mind when things get talky, but nothing new was added to the suspense via the dialogue), it rallies in the end and has a satisfying, fittingly unsettling conclusion.

So these facts tell you that this movie will put you off guard which is one mark of a great film. I was at times saying WTF (in a good way) trying to figure out the mystery. When the reveal happens its outright acid flash back. The Abandoned is more conceptual than anything so of coarse there are a few whom won't get it and there are some unbelieveable parts but I suggest go with it you will have more fun. If you believe in the concept this movie works on all levels. Few films are perfect and when you rent this realize your RENTING a movie and not bought stock in the company thus having unrealistic expectations. I personally will buy this, a movie I feel is a modern horror masterpiece.
As for as the 8 Movies To Die for series, I have seen Dark Ride (which was Ok), Penny Dreadful (amazingly dreadful but somehow entertaining) and The Abandoned which is so much more superior than those movies its no question.
Overall 5 high stars, with a recommendation to buy. When watching, turn the lights off, turn your speakers up and hunker down and fall into this creepy world
as they spend time in the house, things slowly escalate out of control. as time goes on you learn more and more about that house, which was the house they were born in. the house they were supposed to die in.
sort of "Final Destinationish" in theory. this movie is a tale of fate and death. as time goes on you learn about their parents, and how their father tried to kill them.
outside of what i already said there really isnt much to say. theres a very good, creepy atmosphere abound through most of the movie. this one probably has the best effects of any in the set with some very good gore, as brief as it was. a paper thin story was the only thing holding this one back.
