Hell House LLC explained & plot story
* * * Spoiler Alert – If you haven’t seen the movie yet, turn back now! * * *
On October 08, 2009, a hotel, Hell House LLC, reopened to the public. Its previous name was Abaddon. The Hell House LLC crew picked the Abaddon Hotel for men and women’s attention and they succeeded. People come to the hotel on Halloween night to perform a haunted tour.
Unfortunately, the following morning 15 people were found dead. Authorities said nothing but said an “unknown malfunction” was responsible for the accident. The reason for the death is still unclear.
The scene cuts to five years later.
A documentary team comes to investigate the tragedy, and Diane leads the crew. They encounter a journalist who captured some controversial photos at the hotel the following year of the incident. Those photos taken led people to believe that something more mysterious & more disturbing happened that night at Hell House LLC.
The documentary team gets connected with Sara who is the only surviving crew of the hotel. She agrees to an interview. Sarah also wishes to provide the team footage which no one has had until now seen. The footage was shot by the Hell House crew members. Undoubtedly, this is a fantastic opportunity for the documentary team.

The footage which they got from Sarah revealed a bizarre & unexpected mystery about the Hotel.
The Hell House crew comes to the abandoned Abaddon Hotel to engage people in the haunting place on Halloween. Alex is the team leader, and he is the master planner of the project.
They found many unusual satanic pentagrams, evil ritual books, and skulls in the Cellar of the building. Later all the crew was experiencing several unexplainable paranormal phenomena at the building, but Alex didn’t care. He wanted to extend the project as a typical selfish CEO. Most of the crew members were leaving the place, but Alex lastly convinced them of the opening ceremony.
The footage of the Halloween night at Hell House reveals the most bizarre & odd details which caused the tragedy. The clips show all fifteen deaths occurred from paranormal energy.
Sarah takes a break from the documentary team. She tells Diane if she has further questions then meet in her hotel room which is ‘2C.’ Sarah also makes them interested in breaking the seal of the building & investigating by themselves.
Later Diane & Mitchell go to meet Sarah but shockingly there is no ‘2C’ room in the motel. Then Diane moves to Hell House but Mitchell wants to stay.
He completes the footage given by Sarah and finds she already died on that tragic night. He feels something deeply disturbing and tries to call Diane but she doesn’t respond.
At Abaddon, Diane finds a room labeled ‘2C.’ When she enters the room, Sarah is sitting there and her face is deeply wounded in blood. Suddenly two grim shadows appear and pull her into the air. She vanished.
In the last scene of the movie, we see Mitchell know there was no survivor of the Hell House. Thus, he knew Sarah was dead all the time.
What happened in the basement on show night?
Well, this is the main magnet of the movie which keeps us hooked till the end. What acutely happened in the basement on Halloween night and why?
In the YouTube footage, we see a tour fleeing from the basement but fails. Later others looked terrified about something strange but had no clue the reason.
When Sarah provides the clips, we see a teared-up Bible and pentagrams drawn in the basement. An actress Melissa, was hired for the party. At one point people found Sarah in the basement. She was seemingly obsessed with chanting a Latin hymn. So suspiciously it leads our thoughts on satanic cult activity.
When the documentary crew drives deep down in the footage there was a clown that took place in the darkness of the basement and later several times, we saw this clown in the death scene.
But there were demons too in the hotel basement. Because several times we see spiritual dark figures in the movie. Paul and Sarah also encountered spirits in the hotel.
When the footage is reviewed at the party scene, we see in the basement Joey was taken down & Melissa screaming for help. Next to them, a few evil shadows were walking. Obviously, that wasn’t part of the show. The hooded leader from the shadow came to Melissa & cut her throat. Blood came out from there and she stopped screaming.
Is Hell House LLC & Abaddon hotel a real story?
The clear answer is No.
Hell House LLC is a completely fictional story & it is recorded as it looks like found footage clips. This is a cinematographic style called mockumentary.
Film production also confirms that the shooting location is fictional too. The team shot the film at the Waldorf Estate of Fear in Lehighton, Pennsylvania.
