An electrifying new poster for Abattoir has been released and it warns that “He’s Been Expecting You”. Who, exactly? Jebediah Crone, that’s who. Jebediah seeks to create the ultimate haunted house by building it from rooms that have experienced various deaths, pain and terrifying incidences.
Abattoir centres 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?’
Abattoir comes from director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV) and has been written by Christopher Monfette (12 Monkeys – TV series). It stars Jessica Lowndes, Joe Anderson, Lin Shaye, Michael Pare and Dayton Callie. Check out a fascinating and creepy clip for the film below; it looks extremely atmospheric and confident in its execution of such a unique idea.
Check out the poster for Abattoir and be sure to catch the film when it screens at this year’s Horror Channel FrightFest on Saturday 27th August.
