Ascent to Hell is a 2014 American horror film directed by Dena Hysell (The Tribe; The App) from a screenplay by Golan Ramraz, based on Hysell and Isak Borg’s storyline.

New York, present day. Kate Carpenter specializes in selling artist lofts, but when a stranger insists she take the listing on an old factory, the commission is too much to pass up. Celebrity fashion designer Mary Brighton is creating a new clothing line and wants to take over the huge space immediately.

As Kate shows Mary and her team the building, everything seems to be going well, until they get to the eighth floor. The frightening sight of an early 1900’s fire that killed over 200 women haunts them; this floor has trapped the dead spirits of the factory workers.

One by one, Mary’s team tries to leave the building and finds the ghosts won’t let them. Kate begins to wonder if she may be the key to the whole encounter. When she discovers that she is the great granddaughter of the factory owner that started the fire, she knows she’s the only means to getting the group out alive…
