Next to THE HAMILTONS and UNREST, this is the best of the "Eight Films to Die For" released by Lion's Gate this past year. The premise is that a forty-something woman goes back to her Russian birthplace in search of answers about her birth parents - and uncovers a murder. In fact, she also discovers that she has a twin brother. Things start to get creepy when they start seeing these dead looking doppelgangers of themselves, which may be a sign of what will happen to them in the near future. THE ABANDONED is a solid ghost story, highly recommended.
