Shudder Exclusively Acquires Found Footage Breakthrough Sequel HELL HOUSE LLC II: THE ABADDON HOUSE

Anyone in the horror community can tell you that found footage is a polarizing genre. It’s existed for a long time but ever since the breakthrough smash hit The Blair Witch Project, the genre exploded, and then again years later with the success of the Paranormal Activity franchise. No movie is “easy” to make but found footage is a bit easier and it became an overexploited market.

Like all genres, though, when you sift through the fool’s gold and find the real deal, it’s one hell of a treat. Over the last two years, Hell House LLC was able to find itself a spot among the communities core and it has been well received and turned into a bit of a sleeper hit. Now everyone’s favorite streaming service, that’s right, Shudder, has picked up the much anticipated sequel to the surprisingly frightening faux doc. Find the full press release below, which also features a free two week subscription to Shudder, and get excited. It’s dropping this month, on September 20th! What a great early Halloween treat.
