Give it this: The scuzz-bucket decor looks…rotten. A woman (Anastasia Hille) inherits a Russian mansion that turns out to be a Blair Witch/Saw hellhole of slimy black sinks, corroded walls, and general patchy decomposing grossness. It’s also haunted by spirits, but you don’t want to call a ghostbuster — you want to get our heroine over to IKEA for fresh cabinets. The gimmick in The Abandoned is that people battle their zombie doubles, whom they can’t kill, since they’d be killing themselves. But the movie sinks so deep into deathly atmosphere that there’s no life to it. D-</p
