HellHouse the film follows a desperate couple as they rob houses to pay the bills. They pick the wrong house.
HellHouse follows a financially desperate couple who are pushed to the brink and decide to start robbing houses in order to pay their bills.
They pick the wrong house.
What they discover inside is so disturbing and horrific it will keep law enforcement agents and scientists baffled for decades. Will the young lovers escape?
HellHouse is a psychological thriller that taps into the economic unrest in contemporary America while creating a classic horror film in the tradition of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Rosemary's Baby. It's a modern day Bonnie and Clyde with a horror/thriller twist.
HellHouse is a labor of love that will speak to horror fanatics and anyone who has ever worried about money...and serial killers! Our main goal is to scare the hell out of you.
The production budget will go towards:
- A creepy prosthetic mask
- Camera rental
- Camera lenses and other accessories
- Gore and blood FX
- House rental
- Post production
Every penny we make will go directly into production. We're asking for the bare bones minimum we need to make this film and, yes, we'll be eating Ramen on the set. The more money we earn with this campaign, the greater the film will be. But we're confident that $6,666 will allow us to create a horror masterpiece.
More updates, videos and information about HellHouse and the legacy of the serial killer featured in HellHouse coming soon...
