Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir has its European premiere this Saturday at Frightfest but before then, you can now see the UK trailer for the film.
Abattoir’s unique premise involves a strange loner who sets about making a Frankenstein’s Monster haunted house, tearing rooms from houses where violent deaths have occurred and constructing his from them.
Abattoir centers on a real estate reporter who unearths an urban legend about a house being built from rooms where horrific tragedies have occurred. The investigation ultimately leads to the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the answer to the terrifying question, ‘How do you build a haunted house?’
Bousman, who directed Saws II – IV and 2010’s Mother’s Day, directs from a script by Christopher Monfette. Jessica Lowndes (Autopsy) and Joe Anderson (The Crazies, The Ruins) head the cast, which also features genre veterans Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Dead End, Insidious etc etc.) and Michael Paré (Streets of Fire, Village of the Damned). Sons of Anarchy’s Dayton Callie plays the creepy and mysterious Jebediah Crone.
Abattoir will be available to download from August 29th, and on DVD and blu-ray from September 19th.
