It’s no secret that the We Are Indie Horror Team has a strange fascination with the curious works of Darren Lynn Bousman. From the Saw franchise to Repo! and The Devils Carnival, he seems to systematically drift farther away from mainstream horror to work on projects he is truly passionate about. Now he is getting ready to release his newest creation, which also happens to be one of the coolest stories he’s come up with; Abattoir
Abattoir centers on a real estate reporter who unearths an urban legend about a house being built from rooms where horrific tragedies have occurred. The investigation ultimately leads to the enigmatic Jebediah Crone and the answer to the terrifying question, ‘How do you build a haunted house?’
The story is massive, so much so that it was originally told as a comic book, due to it’s complex story line. A psychological twist to the H.H. Holmes Murder Hotel, Abattoir looks to be quite the thrill ride. Add in Bousman’s incredibly stylized look, and this has cult hit written all over it.
Bousman, who will appear in the second season of WAIH TV’s It Came From Candi’s Lab on YouTube, has consistently surprised fans by steering away from mainstream stories and creating worlds that he himself would want to see. This method no doubt alienate some fans, but the ones who appreciate his style will fall even deeper into his grasp. It is truly inspiring to see a filmmaker who got his start in the studio model break out and create real art that he wants to make.
We love his work, and cannot wait to see what Abattoir is all about. If the synopsis doesn’t do it for you, then the poster certainly will. It was officially released on Bloody-Disgusting, which we once again shamelessly taken to share with all of you. There is no news of a release as of yet, but we will do our best to keep you in the loop.
