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 ...Written by
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 »
Interesting concept in a disappointing exploration. Jessica Lowndes lips are luscious n voluptuous.
Some films by Bousman r really good while some r awfully bad. This falls in between because of the interesting concept. This film has elements of film noir, murder mystery, horror, supernatural, etc. but the finished product was kinda meh. Ther r various sub plots narrated very hastily with bad editing. Viewers may find it a bit hard to follow but not interesting to pause or rewind. There was no tension or shocking twist. Kinda predictable. When a journalist, (Jessica Lowndes) sister is brutally killed alongside her husband and son, she joins forces with local cop to find out what really went down. Lin Shaye is totally wasted. Jessica Lowndes lips r voluptuous n luscious. There is an Indian actress, Nargis Fakhri, almost resembling her with those luscious lips. Coming back to the movie, it was a disappointing exploration of a somewhat interesting concept. I don't know y i still want to check out its sequel. Fans of Night flier, Collector, Hellraiser may like this.
