I first came across "Hell House" about a year ago on Sundance Channel's"Doc Day," and having always been interested in films involvingChristianity ("Saved!" and "Dogma" are my two favorites) I decided tosit down and maybe have a laugh or two at the down-southfundamentalism. What I saw wasn't much of...
Hell House director George Ratliff doesn't have to try hard to show thebizarre side of the Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas and their annualHalloween sideshow. Rather than any reasoned attempt to invite converts toChristianity, this is old style 'fire and brimstone' scare tactics straightout of t...
Wow! Last night on the Sundance Channel, I had the opportunity to watch atruly frightening film "Hell House"- a documentary, mind you. The reason whyI think this film is certainly scarier than the run of the millHalloween/Fri. the 13th sequel is that it reflects a honest depiction ofjust how whacko ...
I'm sure Hell House was intended by the deeply religious people who appearin it as a means of saving "the lost". Instead, what it becomes is ashocking and horrifying look at religious extremism (yes, Islam is not theonly religion burdened by extremists).The one image that kept flashing through my he...
Hell House is an interesting documentary looking at a church's annualperformance that demonstrates to people how easy it is to be flung intothe screaming maw of Hell. The filmmakers are careful not to be toojudgemental of this bizarre phenomena but in doing so miss the chanceto look at the moral com...
To quickly summarize what I believe is the 'message' one may get fromviewing this film: All you need to do is change the geographicallocation and name of the 'God' and you've got a typical fundamentalistMadras school in the Middle East. What's on display here is a sad andhorrific waste of young huma...
A great documentary... right up there with Crumb and AmericanMovie. Funny, charming, and even a little disturbing, Hell House isan honest portrayal of contemporary Christian society, down toevery last hallelujah and prayer circle leading up to their annualHalloween spectacular: a haunted house of m...
A previous review for this film infers that the documentary makers loserespect for their subjects. After seeing the documentary, I couldn't cometothe same conclusion. These people with all their good intentions bringridicule on themselves. Bringing hell back into religion and trivialisingdisturbing ...
I thoroughly enjoyed this documentory. Although the principal charactershadall the best intentions, they lacked any inteligence, thus, producing oneofthefunniest "fly on the wall" sagas I have seen.A teenage girl, programmed by her local church, sounds off about lesbianscoming into the store, or di...
Yes, it was very accurate. I grew up in the church and this film isexactly how I remember my church years. I'm sure many are shocked andhorrified at the actions and train of thought of the church, but I'vebeen around it so long that I wasn't shocked at all by it. I think thereason why I didn't enjoy...
Two things you should know about Hell House right up front: first, ithas no relation at all to the Richard Matheson classic horror novel asit's a documentary about a 'Hell House' (among many) that's run byChristian evangelicals. Second, it's not as frightening as Jesus Camp.That film had a much more...
As far as the actual film is concerned this is a pretty well donedocumentary. I found it to be pretty objective, and the film makersjust presented the subject matter and let you the viewer decide. Now asfar as the subjects of the film are concerned... Similar to Jesus Campin the sense that the truly...
I found this to be effective filmmaking: a straight forward documentaryabout the families and youth ministers who put together a haunted housemeant to reinforce Christian dogma and scare people into repenting oftheir supposed moral lapses. We follow one family, several youthleaders, and multiple act...
More than any horror or exploitation film ever have, films like 'JesusCamp,' 'The Most Hated Family in America,' and 'Fall From Grace' haveterrified me to no end. I am not a religious man by any means andhaven't been since I was a teen, but I do respect those who use theirreligion as intended: For g...
"Hell House" shows the members of Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas(near Dallas) organizing and planning their annual Hell House. Unlikethe usual a haunted house with ghosts and goblins, Hell House exposesthe evils of real life (abortion, rape, AIDS, DWI, suicide, etc.) andoffers visitors a chance...
Wanna get the crap scared out of you? And I don't mean that in anyrespectfully horror-ish way when referring to HELL HOUSE. I mean it ina way that'll cause you to doubt human sanity.Technique-wise, I have to give the creators of this idea a definitethumbs up. Utilizing graphic imagery to frighten pe...
The Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas has crafted a unique idea ofwarning of the dangers of sin by depicting it in their church onHalloween. They call these the Hell Houses. They involve people puttingon performances of people in eternal anguish and torment for committingand falling prey to such a...
The more I think about the way this movie was put together, the moreinteresting I find it to be. The pastor of a fairly large church allows asecular film crew to wander in and out of meetings, services and otherevents with a camera and apparently with no restrictions. The fact heallowed this is pret...
This documentary follows the organization and planning of a "HellHouse" (including auditions, construction, scripting and rehearsals)largely through the involvement of one family: a single father with 4children (one of whom suffers from cerebral palsy) including hisdaughter, who is a cast member in ...
I saw it a couple of days ago on the Sundance cable channel. Good Lord! This movie will leave you feeling weird. Its about a congregation of who Iguess are Pentecostal Christians and their annual Hell House. A Hell Houseis a church run Haunted House that shows scenes of modern day evil like drugu...
What the Hell? For Christians it has long been represented as lakes of firewhere the damned are tortured for all eternity. It's interesting to notethat this view is a combination of repeated incorrect translations from theoriginal Hebrew, and visions of hell that traders brought back with themfrom...
The filmmakers do a good job of letting the irony reveal itself withouthitting you over the head with the obvious connection of the Christianreligion's entire doctrine being based on fear. What is revealed issomething a little different than the typical greed motivation of mostreligions. Then again ...
this documentary chronicles a season in the life of texas' famed "hellhouse", a haunted house designed by a Pentacostal church to literally"scarethe devil" out of teenagers. by graphically recreating such horrors asbotched abortions, AIDS death, rape, school shootings, suicide, and drunkdriving acci...
I should say at first that I predict documentary films willundergothe cash infusion that Miramax and others have broughtto"independent" films over the past 15 years. The time isrightespecially with the interest in more vacuous reality programmingon TV. And yes that will definitely be a mixed blessin...
Say what you will about HELL HOUSE, but I admit that it accurately portrayedmy vision of eternal damnation, although not in the way its creators hadhoped.I would be begging for forgiveness if I was unfortunate enough to findmyself in the presence of such a horridly acted and staged production. Thes...
