The Carmichael Manor prequel gets 2023 Shudder release
Terror Films has released a promo video, which you can see in the embed above, to announce that writer/director Stephen Cognetti is set to continue his found footage Hell House LLC franchise with the prequel Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor – which will be released through the Shudder streaming service sometime in the fall of 2023!
Terror Films refers to Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor as “the first chapter of what will become known as the Hell House LLC Origin Films”, so it sounds like we’ll have multiple Hell House LLC prequels to look forward to. This one will show what happens when a group of cold case investigators stay at the Carmichael Manor, site of the grisly and unsolved murders of the Carmichael family back in the eighties. After four nights, the group was never heard from again. What is discovered on their footage is even more disturbing than anything found on the Hell House tapes.
Released in 2015, the first Hell House LLC quickly gained a reputation as one of the best found footage movies out there. And while I’m not usually a fan of the found footage style, I have to admit that Hell House LLC was actually pretty good. I wasn’t so impressed by the 2018 sequel Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel, and still haven’t seen the 2019 entry Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire. But I’ll probably check it out at some point, and the same goes for Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor.
Cognetti has written and directed every one of the films.
