Lionsgate and After Dark Films has picked up the horror, The Abandoned.
Shot in Bulgaria but set in Russia, the bleak but polished ghoul thriller follows a Hollywood producer to the deep forest of Russia where she takes ownership of her crumbling family homestead, notes Variety. There she encounters her brother and, more unsettlingly, her own ghost.
Made in English, the film is the feature debut of Nacho Cerda, a Spanish cult short film director, working from a screenplay by Cerda with Karim Hussain and Richard Stanley, both fantasy horror cult directors.
Lionsgate will release The Abandoned on 1,250 screens in the U.S. on February 23rd.
