January brings several horror selections to the screen – both theatrically and home video and IFC Midnight’s The Abandoned appears to be one you might want to give a chance.  If you have yet to hear what this one is about then I’ve got your fix – a trailer just came out over the Holiday, lets have a look – shall we?

Jason Patric (yes, that Jason Patric)  and Louisa Krause star in the tale which goes like this:

“Take a terrifying plunge into the warped mind of a disturbed young woman. Desperate to get her life back on track, the unstable Streak (Martha Marcy May Marlene’s Louisa Krause) takes a job as a security guard, working the graveyard shift at a once upscale, now abandoned apartment complex. But on her first night on duty, she discovers a horrifying presence lurking deep within the bowels of the decaying building. With her nerves already on edge, Streak must confront demons both real and imagined as she struggles to keep a grip on her sanity. Jason Patric (The Lost Boys) co-stars in this harrowing thrill ride.”

Eytan Rockaway directs.

Hitting both theaters and VOD on Jan. 8th – there’s no excuse to not give this one a look!
