Darren Lynn Bousman, the horror director of "Saw II," "Saw III," "Saw IV," and "Repo! The Genetic Opera," helms this low-budget murder-mystery thriller about a reporter (played by 90210's Jessica Lowndes) and a police detective (The Grey's Joe Anderson) who team up to investigate a cold case involving a creepy haunted house and a possible serial killer.
"Abattoir" co-stars Dayton Callie, Lin Shaye, and Bryan Batt. The film, which is based on Bousman's graphic novel of the same name, will be released in theaters and on-demand, beginning December 9th. Watch the trailer, above.
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.
