Here is our previous coverage of the movie:
Hell House LLC is a 2015 American found-footage horror feature film about a documentary crew’s visit to a Halloween haunt with a tragic story.
Written and directed by Stephen Cognetti, the Cognetti Films production stars Gore Abrams, Alice Bahlke, Danny Bellini and Theodore Bouloukos. Produced by Joe Bandelli and Matt DePaola.
Five years after an unexplained malfunction causes the death of fifteen tour-goers and staff on the opening night of a Halloween haunted house tour, a documentary crew travels back to the scene of the tragedy to find out what really happened…
“It has a great story, a spooky backstory on the abandoned hotel that it takes place in, well-acted characters that you actually get to know and enjoy watching, and plenty of genuinely creepy, and even downright scary, moments. Just don’t expect to have everything neatly explained away by the time the credits roll..” The B-Movie Shelf
“There are some genuinely chilling moments here although some of the scares are slightly telegraphed and slowed down to ensure we don’t miss them. As we’ve seen recently with The Haunting of Hill House scares work effectively when done subtly which Hell House sometimes misses the trick on.” Bloody Flicks
“Everyone involved seems to be making a good go of it. Their output just doesn’t include a powerful payoff for a bland buildup, or standout set up to balance the same ol’ same ol’ of first-person huffing and puffing over blurry bumps in the night.” Culture Crypt
“Sure, the film is not without its flaws, but Hell House LLC strives to scare while simultaneously entertaining its audience. The scares presented are the kinds that have you laughing with your friends immediately after feeling like jumping out of your skin. If you’re a fan of found footage, but you’re tired of the same old drivel, Hell House LLC is the answer to your shaky camera loving prayers.” Daily Dead
“The cast are convincing and, without relying on jump scares, director Cognetti sustains a truly unnerving ambience, mostly abiding by the oft-neglected “less is more” school of horror filmmaking. It builds to a suitably frantic finale, though its sole failing is one ending too many: an unnecessary coda requires a needless credibility leap at the point where the credits should be rolling.” HorrorScreams VideoVault
” …this is an incredibly scary film […] and this is achieved just by realistic characters and simple devices such as creepy clowns and mannequins which move unexpectedly, screaming crowds and unexplained piano playing. Very, very effective writing and directing, and impressively, it was Cognetti’s first feature film.” Ready Steady Cut!
” …it is perfectly paced and the scenes around the footage itself were a stroke of genius as it gives structure to what is going on, as well as constantly drip feed hints of what is to come. Horror taking place in a haunted house attraction is also a neat idea as everything already looks naturally creepy when you have horror-themed dummies everywhere.” The Rotting Zombie
“For a novice director and cast, this film throughout is incredibly well made and acted. I have to say, that I was genuinely… happily surprised. In saying that, if it was a seasoned director and cast, I’d say exactly the same thing. There is a lot of talent being showcased in this film, and they should all be very proud of what they’ve made.” UK Horror Scene
