A Frankenstein's monster of a home, Jebediah Crone's house of horrors is comprised of murder sites uprooted from their original locations. Based on his unsettling comic book series of the same name, Darren Lynn Bousman's Abattoir is teased in its official trailer and poster ahead of its December 9th release.

Synopsis: "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 are ultimately faced with the question: How do you build a haunted house? One room at a time."

Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman from a screenplay by Christopher Monfette, Abattoir stars Jessica Lowndes, Joe Anderson, Lin Shaye, and Dayton Callie. Momentum Pictures will release Abattoir in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on December 9th. In case you missed it, check out Daily Dead's Los Angeles Film Festival interview with Bousman.
