Following up on the announcement of Darren Bousman signing at the Radical Publishing booth for the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con, Radical Publishing is proud to announce that Bousman, the acclaimed director of Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV, is attached to write and direct Abattoir as a feature film, based on the upcoming comic miniseries developed by Bousman and writing-producing partner Michael Peterson. Abattoir will be produced by Radical’s President and Publisher, Barry Levine and executive produced by Radical’s executive Vice President, Jesse Berger and Darren Bousman.
Abattoir chronicles real estate agent Richard Ashwalt who is assigned the impossible task of cleaning up after a brutal massacre that takes place at a mansion. As he cleans the blood-soaked grounds, a twisted old man journeys to the house with a sinister and terrifying purpose, and draws Richard into a web of shadows, murders and massacres that will shatter him to his very core…and make him run for his life.
“I am addicted to haunted house stories.” stated Bousman “I love them… My addiction to this genre became an obsession to create one of my own. Abattoir is my spin on a haunted house story.
“Darren has crafted a thrilling horror story and we are excited to have him both debut a preview of the cover art at San Diego Comic-Con and have him adapt the film.”said Radical Publishing’s President and Publisher Barry Levine.
