Eerie low budget project ...
- Abandoned Dead review by NP
I rather enjoyed this independent film concerning an over-worked Security Guard’s night spent in an inner-city medical clinic. Rachel, very well played by Sarah Nicklin, has an aversion to darkness (and therefore the night), so her enforced nightshift already sets her nerves on edge.
Director and writer Robert Adams, ubiquitous behind the scenes, supplies a very effective, minimalist electronic music score which adds greatly to the low-key atmosphere of murky horror.
I like this because it attempts something a little different and for the most part succeeds. While the idea of a young woman spending the night in a creepy building (seemingly) alone isn’t exactly new, this is a story atmospherically told, and not one that relies on ‘jump scares’, which has become a rather monotonous staple of many modern films. My score is 7 out of 10.
