“January is traditionally a crummy time for new releases. Coming off a banner year at the movies, a la 2015, this crusty old truism isn’t a big deal; there remain many worthy films running at your local art house or at the closest multiplex, and now, as we close in on the AMPAS nominations announcement, is the perfect time to catch up. Consider this a warning more than a recommendation, because the alternative is watching stuff like Eytan Rockaway’s The Abandoned. If you’ve ever wondered why studios treat this month like a celluloid landfill, The Abandoned presents a compelling case study on its own lack of merit.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
