From beloved Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Repo! The Genetic Opera, The Devil’s Carnival), comes the new Christopher Monfette-penned horror film Abattoir. If Bousman’s typical fair hasn’t been your speed, the trailer and synopsis for Abattoir might persuade you to actually get out and see this one come December 9th.,
An investigative reporter works to solve the mystery behind a mysterious man who has been buying houses where tragedies have occurred. Set in a world where it always feels like night, even in daylight hours, real estate reporter Julia Talben’s life is turned upside down when her family is brutally murdered. It is believed to be an open and close case, but Julia quickly realizes there is much more to this story when she returns to the crime scene to find the murder room deconstructed and physically removed from her sister’s home. This ignites an investigative pursuit that eventually leads her and ex-lover Detective Declan Grady to the town of New English where they find the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the Abattoir – a monstrous house stitched together with unending rooms of death and the damned. Julia comes to realize that her sister’s soul is trapped inside, but the Abattoir isn’t just a house – it’s a door to something more evil than anyone could have ever imagined. Julia and Grady are ultimately faced with the question: How do you build a haunted house? One room at a time.
Momentum Pictures will release Abattoir in theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on December 9th. The film was the 2016 official selection of the LA Film Festival, Fantasia, Sitges, and numerous other festivals. The film stars Jessica Lowndes, Joe Anderson, Lin Shaye, Dayton Callie, and was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman.
