|THE HAPPY (CLOUD) HOOKERS!
MIKE WATT and company
Happy Cloud Pictures' third feature is a vampire fable for the modern horror fan. Abattoir is about an unusual truce between two unusual groups of adversaries. Terri Miller (Stacy Bartlebaugh-Gmys) is rescued from a vicious mugging and rape by a mysterious woman who arrives unannounced to her aid. She takes her back to the Bathory House, rumored to be a high-class brothel. There, she meets the house's Madame, Elizabet Le Fanau (Severe Injuries director Amy Lynn Best), who takes Terri under her wing and instructs her in the ways of the new house. Eager for a new life, Terri accepts. Her former boyfriend, Seth (Aaron Bernard), was never ready to let her go. When his friend, John (Steve Foland, Project: Valkyrie), sees Terri at the House, he rushes to tell Seth the bad news, in the hopes that the heartbroken man will move on. Quite the opposite-Seth vows to go up to the House and "rescue her" from this life of ill-repute. Their drunken arguing is overheard by Tom Reagan (Bill Homan, The Resurrection Game), who fears that the pair will not come back from the House alive.

sacked, and is being replaced by an on-camera host, Slutpira,

with the producer. One of the many highlights of this packed DVD
are the various "Is the camera on?" visual gags that
pop up. Congrats to Henrique Couto (whose comedy timing is, as
usual, fantastic), Andrew Shearer, Chris LaMartina and the cast
and crew for a laugh-out-loud trilogy! Click on the box for more
