Whether you are an adrenaline junky or just want a pretty girl to grab onto your arm in fear, humanity is drawn to horror films. The twisted stories keep us guessing while the sick situations entertain our darker sides. We enjoy watching every day, normal individuals unexpectedly be forced into a terrifying predicament as they fight for their survival. However, horror movies as of recent have become a bit stale, at least in my opinion. Nowadays we have a lot of mockumentary-style films with over exaggerated paranormal phenomenon, overused zombie plots, and generic hack ‘n’ slash gore feasts. The films keep you occupied but leave you feeling a bit unsatisfied at the end almost like there is an empty hole in your heart that is still waiting to be filled by a riveting experience.
Entertainment One and Hidden Agenda have recently released a new sci-fi/horror movie that is grotesque and disturbing in all the right ways. Abducted original appeared as an XBox exclusive independent film on September 3rd but has made its way to DVD format just in time for Halloween. Written, directed, and produced by Glen Scantlebury and Lucy Phillips (My Tiny Universe and Steal America), Abducted tells a story about physiological and psychological torture that is guaranteed to get under your skin – literally.
