A long abandoned slaughterhouse is transformed into modern lofts in a re-gentrified urban neighborhood. Soon after tenants move in they are tormented by a dark secret that has been trapped in the building for over 30 years.
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.

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 »
"Abattoir" is a film with a promising supernatural story and good cinematography that is wasted by a disconnected screenplay that do not develop the characters and situations well. The original idea of an evil man that buys houses to take the rooms where tragedies happened is an unintelligible mess and hard to be understood by the viewer. The motivation of the snoopy Julia Talben is also confused after learning the truth about Jebediah Crone. She knew her family was murdered and in hell (why?) and she insists in entering the house. There is many lack of explanation along the story and in the end, watching "Abattoir" is a complete waste of time. My vote is one (awful).
Title (Brazil): "O Matadouro" ("The Slaughterhouse")
