AMC Networks’ horror streaming service Shudder has announced that its teamed-up with Terror Films on Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire. Production has already begun on the third installment of the found footage film franchise.
Shudder General Manager Craig Engler stated: “The Hell House LLC franchise on Shudder has been hugely popular, and our world wide premiere of Hell House LLC 2 last year was one of our most watched films ever. We couldn’t be more thrilled to premiere the final chapter of this epically terrifying series exclusively on Shudder.”
Terror Films President Joe Dain added: “Hell House III will be taking a cue from the original Hell House LLC, returning to its roots to capture the same intensity and fear that fans and critics alike fell in love with. We’re thrilled to be continuing our distribution partnership with Stephen and Joe, and I couldn’t think of a better way to premiere the film than on Shudder. It’s our hope that this third and final installment will not only satisfy the multitude of questions from fans from all over the world, but also act as an exciting precursor for The Abaddon Tapes – a limited series currently in development, which will expand on the history of the Abaddon Hotel, the now infamous setting of the franchise.”
The film is written & directed by Stephen Cognetti, produced by Joe Bandelli, and stars Ryan Jennifer Jones as “Sara”, Danny Bellini as “Alex”, Gore Abrams as “Paul”, Adam Schneider as “Mac”, Theodore Bouloukos as “Robert”, Jared Hacker as “Tony”, Joy Shatz as “Molly”, Jillian Geurts as “Jessica”, and Brian David Tracy as “Andrew Tully”.
Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire will be released sometime next year, exclusively on Shudder.
Guests both past and present will be forced to battle for their souls 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 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.
