The new horror film “Abattoir” takes the concept of a haunted house to its conceptual limit. The film follows investigative reporter Julia Talben (Jessica Lowndes) whose life is turned upside when her family is brutally murdered. Though believed to be an open-and-shut case, she quickly realizes there’s more to the story. Soon she and her ex-lover Declan Grady (Joe Anderson) are drawn to the town of New English where they find Jebediah Crone and the Abattoir – a monstrous house stitched together with unending rooms of death and the damned. Now Julia must solve the case before it’s too late. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who was one of the writers of the “Abattoir” graphic novel series. He has previously directed “Saw II” through “Saw IV,” “Mother’s Day” and “The Devil’s Carnival.” It’s co-written by horror novelist and screenwriter David J. Schow, who previously wrote Alex Proyas’ cult film “The Crow,” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.”
“Abattoir” had its world premiere at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival. It also screened at Fantasia Fest and Stiges Fest as well. It is now available on VOD, Digital HD as well as in select theaters, courtesy of Momentum Pictures.
