Movie Info

After terminating her pregnancy against the advice of her doctor, a woman is tormented by the ghost of her aborted daughter in director Biray Dalkiran's controversial horror shocker. Months after receiving the procedure, would-be mother Eda is beset by a disturbing otherworldly visitor wherever she goes. Eda's unborn daughter craves the love that only a mother can provide, and cannot depart from this realm until she is unconditionally embraced. Of course Eda's friends all think that she is crazy, and after she locked away in a mental hospital the situation gets even worse. Now that Eda is trapped in a confined space, her ghostly daughter can visit her more frequently than ever before.

For Ustaoglu's young leads at least, there's more to come: each, after portraying a lifetime's worth of grief, turned 20 last year.

...the handheld camera rarely stops bobbing around like a ship on choppy seas.

Audience Reviews for The Abortion


Whew, hold your nose because here is a stinker. I could call this slow paced (when people do stuff like walk to the car, drive in the car, type on the computer, etc, it seems to be in real time)bu that would imply that it was paced. I really enjoyed d@bbe and a couple other Turkish horrors I've seen (whose names escape me) but this seems like it was made to bore you. Also, by watching this, you can see how jump scares definitely do not work, in wide shots and masters. Terrible.
