In the new neo-noir horror film “Abattoir,” Julia (Jessica Lowndes), an investigative reporter, discovers a series of gruesome murders tied to real estate mysteries, where entire rooms have been dismantled and pulled from their foundations. Now, Julia and hardboiled cop Grady (Joe Anderson) embark on a search for the answer to why these rooms were the exact settings for heinous crimes. In this exclusive clip above, Julia and Grady enter one of these house and discover a destroyed room upstairs.
“Abattoir” is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, whose previous directorial credits include “Saw II, “Saw III,” “Saw IV,” “Mother’s Day” (the horror film, not the Garry Marshall film) and “The Devil’s Carnival.” It’s co-written by horror novelist and screenplay writer David J. Schow, who previously wrote Alex Proyas’ cult film “The Crow,” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning,” the prequel to the remake of Tobe Hunter’s classic 1974 film. Jessica Lowndes is best known for playing Adrianna Tate-Duncan on the teen drama series “90210”; she’s also known for her singing career, including two EP’s and a host of singles, and for appearing in “A Deadly Adoption,” a Lifetime drama parody film starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. Joe Anderson played Peter Hook in the Ian Curtis biopic “Control,” Max Carrigan in “Across the Universe,” and Mason Verger in four episodes of “Hannibal.”
“Abattoir” will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Tuesday June 7 at 8:55pm at the Arclight Culver City theater. Check out some exclusive photos from the film below.
