2016’s Hell House LLC was a sleeper discovery here at Nightmare on Film Street. After countless hours touring the been-there-seen-that horror section on Netflix, we opted for a blind choice from ye olde VOD shop. That blind choice happened to be the paranormal, haunted house, found footage spookshow of Hell House LLC. With well-crafted scares, an eerie setting, and a few well-placed clowns, the movie quickly made its way to the top of our year-end lists. And too, for the rest of the horror community, where it silently picked up steam on ‘Most Underrated‘ lists, forums, and Facebook Groups.
It’s no surprise now, only two years later, the haunt opens its doors again with Hell House LLC II – The Abaddon Hotel. And, not only will the film be hitting VOD platforms this September, but we’ve also a taste of the upcoming sequel with the first trailer (above), and poster (below)!
