Just over a year ago, I was bored one evening. I ended up browsing Amazon Prime Video and looked for a horror movie. Now quite often when I do this I will start watching a film and end up giving up in about 5 minutes.
So I loaded up Hell House LLC, the story sounded ok, and I thought I would give it a go. This was a Found Footage film and I am not a fan of the genre. The Blair Witch bored me. In fact as a film style I would typically avoid (though a few other gems stand out – ask me about them on twitter). But on this one occasion I dove in and stuck with it. I am glad I did. It was a solid horror affair, group of people setting up a haunted house attraction in a real haunted house, as a pitch seems a bit tired, but the execution of the premise and the fleshing out of the story REALLY worked.
In fact Hell House LLC is probably my most watched movie of 2018 and 2019. Probably as I have possibly watched the Sequel which followed Halloween of 2018 (After what seemed like a VERY long wait).
The second part propelled the story into definite trilogy mode. Taking and expanding on the events of the original.
And now I have another 3 weeks to wait for the concluding part of the trilogy as Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire will launch exclusively onto SHUDDER (the Horror Streaming Service) on the 19th September 2019 (Shudder USA, Shudder Canada and Shudder UK).
In the final installment, guests both past and present will be forced to battle for their souls in Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire, as all is revealed about the infamous Abaddon Hotel and the evil that dwells there. Set one year after the events of Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel, the hotel is on the verge of being torn down when it is purchased by billionaire Russell Wynn (Gabriel T. Chytry) as the new home for his popular interactive show, “Insomnia.” He invites journalist Venessa Sheppard (Elizabeth Vermilyea) and her crew to record everything happening inside the hotel leading up to the performance, but they soon encounter a more nefarious plot, one that threatens to unleash a veritable hell on earth.
