Critic Reviews of "Abattoir"RogerEbert.comDecember 09, 2016
If you operate under the belief that you can learn as much, maybe even more, from bad movies as you can from good ones, this one is a master class in what not to do.Los Angeles TimesDecember 08, 2016
The inexplicability of "Abattoir" keeps it engaging for a while, but by the time it hits the one-hour mark without anything even remotely exciting happening, even a horror connoisseur's patience will run thin.Hollywood ReporterDecember 08, 2016
While Bousman's climax is a not terribly original effects-laden haunted house, the house's builder, and his motives, have enough of their own flavor to please a hardened horror fan.VarietyDecember 05, 2016
A franchise-aspirational horror opus that takes too long establishing its premise, then peters out in a climactic jumble of scare-free digital effects.Under the RadarDecember 16, 2016
Abattoir has some interesting, albeit perhaps unwieldy ideas that never quite congeal into a gripping screamer.The Film StageDecember 09, 2016
Ambition is laudable, but sometimes the end result falls short of expectation.Film RacketDecember 08, 2016
suffers from the whole "first chapter in a franchise no one is asking for" syndromePopMattersDecember 08, 2016
There's a reach on the part of Abattoir's makers that exceeds their grasp.Film Journal InternationalDecember 08, 2016
[I]n the end, the screenplay doesn't equal the sum of its parts and the film is unsatisfying.We Got This CoveredDecember 06, 2016
Abattoir feels like it should still have an "Under Construction" sign warning viewers of the unfinished business to come.Movie NationDecember 06, 2016
Interesting concept, interesting supporting players, dreadful leads.
