Abandoned Set for Toronto


The Abandoned to premiere at Tornoto International Film FestivalGood news came down yesterday for people like me who think Nacho Cerda’s upcoming feature debut, The Abandoned, has the potential to be one of the best films released next year. review) on the bill.

Damn, I gotta get my ass to Toronto.

Abandoned was written by Subconscious Cruelty director Karim Hussain and Dust Devil helmer Richard Stanley. The tale is that of a woman who goes back to her family home in Russia to finally get some answers to life-long questions, only to meet a man who claims to be her brother and to be haunted by doppelgangers who depict how the duo are going to die.

For more on the film, be sure to read my interview with Hussain right here, and hit Filmax’s page for it here. The Abandoned will be released in Spain before the end of the year, but no details were given as to its North American plans. Oddly enough, the film will additionally play in competition at Sitges, where it will go up against (among other films), Hussain’s return to directing, The Beautiful Beast. Should make for some interesting stories!
