The Abyss is a realm that exists somewhere outside the human dimension. It is the home and prison to The Corrupted. Sometime in The Abyss, there was a war between The Corrupted and their slaves. It's assumed that the Corrupted won this war. During this war, a weakened spirit managed to escape The Abyss and entered the human world.

Doorways into the the Abyss can be opened through human sacrifices. One such example is when the Terror Mask used it's host to sacrifice ten thousand lives in order to open a portal.

In the works of H.P. Lovecraft, he uses the word "abyss" multiple times. This could be where the writers of Splatterhouse (2010) got the name from, as they took several Lovecraft inspired themes.
