Shudder announced recently that production had begun on Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire, the final chapter of the popular found footage horror series of movies, for a release later this year.
The trilogy-maker will see characters from the first two installments joining new characters for another visit to the infamous Abaddon Hotel. You can find all of the details on the project below.
Here’s the full announcement from the press release:
Pack your bags for another terrifying stay at the infernal Abbadon Hotel. â€‹HELL HOUSE LLC III: LAKE OF FIREâ€‹, the third installment in the hit found-footage horror franchise, has begun production this week and will premiere exclusively on Shudder later this year.
Writer/director Stephen Cognetti and producer Joe Bandelli have returned for the new installment, along with many of the original Hell House LLC cast reprising their roles: Ryan Jennifer Jones (Sara), Danny Bellini (Alex), Gore Abrams (Paul), Adam Schneider (Mac), Theodore Bouloukos (Robert) and Jared Hacker (Tony). They are joined by returning Hell House LLC II cast members Joy Shatz (Molly), Jillian Geurts (Jessica) and Brian David Tracy as the demonic former Abaddon Hotel owner Andrew Tully.
â€œThe â€‹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 everâ€ said Craig Engler, GeneralManager of Shudder, AMC Networksâ€™ streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural. â€œWe couldnâ€™t be more thrilled to premiere the final chapter of this epically terrifying series exclusively on Shudder.â€
â€œâ€‹Hell House III will be taking a cue from the original â€‹Hell House LLCâ€‹, returning to its roots to capture the same intensity and fear that fans and critics alike fell in love with,â€ said Terror Films President Joe Dain. â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to be continuing our distribution partnership with Stephen and Joe, and I couldnâ€™t think of a better way to premiere the film than on Shudder. Itâ€™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 â€‹The Abaddon Tapesâ€‹â€”a limited series currently in development, which will expand on the history of the Abaddon Hotel, the now infamous setting of the franchiseâ€.
In â€‹HELL HOUSE LLC III: LAKE OF FIREâ€‹, 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 â€‹Hell House LLC IIâ€‹, 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, â€‹Insomniaâ€‹. 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.
Both Hell House LLC and Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel are available to stream on Shudder if you haven’t seen them. You can also check out a trailer and the opening scene of Hell House LLC II right here if interested.
Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire is expected to arrive on Shudder sometime this Halloween season.
