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.

Review: Darren Lynn Bousman’s ‘Abattoir’ Falls Short of Its Ambitions

You have to admire Darren Lynn Bousman‘s ambition because he could have just kept going with the Saw franchise after taking over the reins from James Wan. Instead he jumped ship to work on a passion project developed with Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith entitled Repo! The Genetic Opera. Here was a science fiction horror musical based upon a short produced two years previously with enough character and originality to become a cult favorite. Since then he wrote a couple films that didn’t go over well and reunited with Zdunich on another musical before delving into a comic book universe entitled Abattoir with writers Rob Levin and Troy Peteri about a mysterious man who collects rooms where tragedies occurred and fashions them together into a nightmarish ghost-filled mansion.

Begun as a six-issue series, the property gained steam with its multimedia publisher Radical Studios to go one step further into creating a feature film.

The Lrm Interview with Abattoir Director Darren Lynn Bousman

About 11 years ago, Darren Lynn Bousman first got attention for directing not just Saw II, but it’s two sequels as well, and those being the three most successful movies in the franchise, he was able to go off and do his own thing, which was the horror musical, Repo! The Genetic Opera. In the time since then, Bousman has kept with a number of more personal projects, and one of them that’s finally seeing the light of day is one called Abattoir.

Bousman came up with the idea for Abattoir as a horror comic series published through Radical Publishing before adapting it into a movie starring Jessica Lowndes (90210) as reporter Julia Talben, whose sister is killed in a violent home invasion, which leads to her investigating a strange house buyer who bought the house and removed the murder room, something he’s been doing for other scenes of violent crimes.

'Abattoir': Film Review

'Abattoir': Film Review
Viewers shouldn't get too excited, or too dismissive, when the opening scenes of Darren Lynn Bousman's Abattoir suggest it may intend to dress its swampy ghost story up in the clothing of a '30s screwball comedy. Though its plucky reporter heroine (Jessica Lowndes) displays a love for all things retro throughout, the film drops its newsroom-banter conceit early on to focus on a less familiar angle. Horror buffs may warm to the moody film, especially with few thrillers currently competing in the market; more important, journalists working the real-estate beat will have the rare thrill of seeing their career glamorized.

Abattoir Review

Abattoir poses such a savage, provocative haunted house concept, but much like Brad Peyton’s Incarnate, this re-modeled genre construct is wasted on plodding execution that squanders any inherent excitement. Darren Lynn Bousman erects his very own funhouse amusement out of bloody murder locations, building a true-to-form haunted house without the haunts. Dead souls inhabit the very rooms they were slain in, all so an old, vengeful creep can make peace with his own family’s passing. It’s an architect’s dream hobby mixed with Satan’s own interior decorating, yet we’re never granted access to the horrors that pulsate from room to room. Tonal airlessness, momentum-halting CGI, disconnected storytelling – these are just a few of the code violations that stack against 2016’s most daunting renovation nightmare.

New English resident Jebediah Crone (Dayton Callie) acts as Bousman’s head designer, a cult leader who strengthens his connection to

Film Review: ‘Abattoir’

Film Review: ‘Abattoir’
Not quite the bloody mess its title would suggest, but a bit of a mess nonetheless, Darren Lynn Bousman’s “Abattoir” is a franchise-aspirational horror opus that takes too long establishing its premise, then peters out in a climactic jumble of scare-free digital effects. Some weak key performances and an uncertain tone further dim the appeal of this latest from the director of several “Saw” sequels and “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” Shot in late 2014, it’s finally arriving on 10 AMC screens nationwide after a tour of genre fests, simultaneous with streaming release.

Newspaper reporter Julia Talben (Jessica Lowndes from the “90210” reboot) panics when she gets a call at work from someone who identifies himself simply as “The man who just killed your sister.” Rushing to the latter’s house with police detective friend/suitor Grady (Joe Anderson), she discovers that indeed Amanda (Jackie Tuttle), as well as Amanda’s husband and small child,

Coming Distractions: It’s the eerie Abbatoir trailer, from the director of Saw II and The Devil’s Carnival

Darren Lynn Bousman, it’s fair to say, has a spotty track record in horror cinema. The man who made the superlative remake of Mother’s Day is also responsible for the okay Saw II, the not-so-okay Saw III, and the “Oh God, we’re only barely over halfway done?” Saw IV. More recently, he’s been turning to more operatic types of horror, fusing them to his intentionally over-the-top and hammy shtick in The Devil’s Carnival, which is sort of like a Juggalo version of The Twilight Zone. Nonetheless, his heart is clearly in the horror of yesteryear, in classic ghost stories and things that go bump in the night, which has led to Abbatoir, his homage to noir, haunted houses, and Southern gothic spooks, all put in a Cuisinart and blended together.
