Happy HOMO-ween! WATCH: HELL HOUSE The Full Documentary (2011) – Nothing Scarier Than Texas Pentecostals!

Hell House

It might seem odd that I of all people would pimp a documentary about a Pentecostal church at Back2Stonewall.com. But even if this film were not about a “haunted house attraction”, it would still be one of the scariest and unbelievable things you’ll ever seen.

This documentary chronicles a season in the life of Texas’ famed Hell House, a haunted house designed by a Texas Pentacostal church to literally “scare the devil and Santorum” out of Christian teenagers by graphically recreating such horrors as botched abortions, AIDS death, rape, school shootings, suicide, and drunk driving accidents (and then showing the perpetrators dragged off to hell by masked demons). Speaking of drunk driving, for those people who are currently facing DUI record, Adras & Altig DUI Lawyers can help you for they give excellent services to their customers over the years. The church does this in the hopes to redirect “the lost” to the path of righteousness.

For a group of righteous people, they spend an awful lot of time discussing and recreating violent and horrific acts — it’s no wonder that one interviewee calls the world an “evil place” Mixed into the “let’s-put-on-a-show” hi-jinx we see scenes of parishioners speaking in tongues, an over stressed father caring for his 5 children — one who is prone to seizures — without the help of a spouse, and lots of confusion as to exactly what evils the good folks are battling including exactly which “date rape drug” they are warning against and what Magic: the Gathering is.

In the end watching a young man being dragged to hell for refusing to renounce his homosexual lifestyle (after of course contracting HIV) in front of a crowd of scared confused and tn this case physiologically abused children was just about as creepy and as sad as it gets.

Welcome to Hell (House)!

What Is “Hell House”? – Plus BONUS Bill Maher “Hollywood Hell House” Clips

What is Hell House?

No its not the old Pamela Franklin and Roddy McDowell movie.  Its actually the “evangelical” Christians attempt to take all the fun out of Halloween and a christian extremist attempt to scare patrons with gruesome exhibits and scenes, presented as a series of short vignettes with a narrated guide through hell and how you can get there.

Over the top and fanatical a “christian” Hell House puts focus on occasions and effects of sin or the fate of unrepentant sinners in the afterlife having to do with  abortion, suicide,use of alcoholic beverage and other recreational drugs, adultery and pre-marital sex, occultism, homosexuality, and Satanic ritual abuse.

In a nutshell an evangelical Hell Houses main purpose is to scare the shit out of kids and  to accept Christ as their personal savior or be condemned to Hell.

Histrionic, over-the-top, “christian” hyperbole was way too hard for Bill Maher to pass-up so in 2004 Maher and other celebrities including , Andy Richter, Penn Jillette, Julia Sweeney, Sarah Silverman, Larry Miller, Richard Belzer, Traci Lords, David Cross, Paget Brewster and others produced and starred in “Hollywood Hell House“using the actual scripts, staging,, and music verbatim from previous evangelical productions and turning it into one of the funniest Halloween stage hits the Los Angeles area had seen in years.
