Hell House LLC
Directed by Stephen Cognetti
In this found-footage gem, a documentary crew visit the site of a haunted house attraction whose opening night ended with 15 unexplained deaths. Eventually the crew come across a surviving employee who has footage that shines a scary light on what really went down that night. As we watch those ill-fated thrillseekers shuffling through the horror house, the knowledge of what’s about to happen makes for a squirm-and-scream-inducing good time. Dread Central called it “a perfect fright flick for the Halloween season” which features “one of the creepiest clowns to appear in a horror movie in a long time.” Sorry Pennywise!

I will say, it was slow at the beginning, but overall this was a solid found footage flick.
A few good scares. The characters weren’t particularly likable, but it was an interesting idea and fairly well executed. Watch it if nothing else is on.
Over all a few good jump scares.
An anticlimactic ending and too many instances of poor acting and cheesy dialogue made this flick a disappointment. I was really bummed because there was a lot of potential and some genuinely unsettling scares. I worked in a haunted house for four years and really enjoyed the premise, but it just didn’t take off.
A great addition to the found-footage genre. A unique take with a refreshing and likeable set of characters, nothing ground breaking but engaging til the very end, highly recommended!
