Abattoir

Set for a 2010 debut, Abattoir chronicles real estate agent Richard Ashwalt, assigned the impossible task of cleaning up after a brutal massacre 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 Richard is drawn into a web of shadows, murders and massacres that will shatter him to his very core…and make him run for his life.

[AFM '13] Sales Art Constructed For 'Saw II-IV' Director's 'Abattoir'

Updated with the official AFM sales art!

Darren Lynn Bousman, director of Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV, is still set to direct Abattoir, which will be produced by Radical Studios, and brought onto the market at AFM by Paris-based sales company Versatile Films, Variety reports.

Abattoir will answer the genre’s most terrifying question: How do you build a haunted house?

Bousman will work from a screenplay by Christopher Monfette, who adapts the Radical Publishing comicbook miniseries created by Bousman.

Somebody has spent decades purchasing the sites of horrific tragedies, removing the bloodied rooms and piecing them together. When a Boston real-estate reporter unearths this urban legend, the story will lead her the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and his impossible construction — the Abattoir.READ MORE

Darren Lynn Bousman Talks 'The Devil's Carnival 2', Taking A Break And 'Abattoir'

I caught up with Darren Bousman last night on the red carpet for the Eyegore Awards (which kicked off this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood). He’s had a busy year what with The Devil’s Carnival, Mother’s Day and the upcominng release of The Barrens. So he’s probably taking a little break pretty soon – but not until after The Devil’s Carnival 2.

He told us, “We’re starting pre-production right now. It takes place in Heaven and it’s a lot more dark and f*cked up than the first one that takes place in Hell. So Heaven is a lot darker than Hell in our case. Everyone [from the original] is back and we have a whole new cast of misfits as well.

Is he keeping up the breakneck pace after that? “No. I’m taking a break. I’m ready to die.” After the break? “The only thing I can talk about is Abattoir. I had a comic book series called ‘Abattoir’ and I’m writing the script [for the film] right now. That’s in the very early stages of pre-production. That would probably be my next movie.

This year’s Halloween Horror Nights dates are September 21, 22, 28, 29 and October 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28 and 31.

The 6 issue mini-series is now well into the duration of its’ run as the publisher is gearing up to release the fourth issue on April 20th, and beyond the break you can check out a violent 7 page preview and get all the details.
