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 »

A Ruined House
29 September 2016 | by kupukupumuSee all my reviews

I like the idea of this movie which I considered quite original. Also the story has the potential to make this as a very good movie. But unfortunately, it the journey is ruined by the execution.

The Good The idea is quite good. Not some haunted family or teenagers running around.

The Bad Casting of the main protagonists: no chemistry and (sorry) the main actor's acting is not convincing at all. She looks blank when presented with an ultra scenic ghost house in the middle of no where, in which normal people will be amazed, fearful, run away or anything. Maybe the green screen is a just a big green screen so she cannot imagine what she should see. The scenes are also boring and at many times feels too slow. Some dialogs are too wordy trying to be poetic, but in the end only confuse audience. This is not Penny Dreadful series conversations.

Summary Hope they can remake this movie into a better one.
