Storyline

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 ...

Goofs

When Julia first gets the knife from the chair, it has a chrome-like finish and a plain spine. Just after passing the spectres that jump from the balcony, it changes to a knife with a matte edge and a saw on the spine. The knife then changes back to its original style afterward. See more »

Very well made film
15 October 2016 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

My quick rating 6,9/10. If you are a fan of quality camera-work, editing and an array of interesting characters, this one will do well for you. In a strange film noir mix with modern times (which sometimes works and other times just seems out of place) a couple, one who conveniently is a cop, are attempting to sell a house where a brutal massacre occurs. Jessica Lowndes plays a real estate agent who conveniently is married to Joe Anderson as they start to realize that this murder was not just a one time thing when the house sells almost immediately and upon inspection, the entire crime scene has been removed, literally. Upon this strange occurrence they soon find that this has been happened before, numerous times. What befalls them is a strange tale that draws the viewer in to see who or what is taking physical murder scenes and collecting them. Behind it all is Dayton Callie, playing Jebediah Crone brilliantly, who seems to have a hold of a small town in a rather unsettling way. As the movie plays out, you start to really understand the small town mentality, and realize that you are being drawn into a much larger mystery that culminates into a wonderful ending. I won't say much more on that, just a very well made movie that aside from the strange 50s meets today style hits the mark on many levels. Kudos for a creative and original idea that really is done well. Much attention to details that visually are stunning, especially the last half hour of the film. Definitely a treat for horror and movie fans alike.
