The Abandoned (2006), directed by Nacho Cerdà
I enjoyed this movie very much. I thought it was really well done. It had great set design, great special effects (that didn’t look too cgi), and it didn’t center around beautiful, oversexed teens.
Although it relies heavily on traditional horror themes (but they all do, of course), such as horrible events that are reenacted on their anniversary, and unexplainable time shifts, it was not contrived, boring, or ridiculous. It was just a good, old-fashioned mysterious haunting.
Of all the horror movies I’ve seen in the last few years, this was by far one of the best produced and directed.
From Amazon.com: An American woman searching for her birth parents learns she has inherited a house in the middle of a forest in a remote area of Russia. It is the house where she was born. Abandoned and uninhabited for 40 years, it stands in total disrepair and neglect. What she finds is more than an old house. She meets a mysterious man claiming to be her twin brother and together they find the house holds dangerous secrets to a past they don't even remember. They are forced to relive a series of horrifying events and shocking murders that occurred just after they were born, and in the place where they were supposed to die.
Here is a teaser trailer, but don’t go watch the full trailer. It reveals too much.
