Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor, a prequel to the other Hell House LLC movies, will be on Shudder and AMC+ this Devil’s Night

Last year, Terror Films announced that writer/director Stephen Cognetti would be continuing his found footage Hell House LLC franchise with the prequel Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor – with the plan being that the finished film would be released through the Shudder streaming service sometime in the fall of this year. Now we know exactly when Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor is going to start streaming on both Shudder and AMC+: Monday, October 30th. It’s going to be a Devil’s Night Premiere!

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.

The film stars Destiny Leilani Brown (12 to Midnight), James Liddell (Island Escape), Gideon Berger (The Tannery), Cayla Berejikian (Poundcake), Victoria Andrunik (Girls5eva), Darin F. Earl II (Ripples of Water), Searra Sawka (The Impact Factor), Joe Bandelli (Cabin Fear), Rocky Glen Park director Robert Savakinus, and newcomers Bridget Rose Perrotta, Thomas J. Cipriano, Michael Caprioli, Celeste Cicon, Marlene Williams, and Dayna Michelle Kurtz.

Cognetti has written and directed every entry in the Hell House LLC franchise, which began in 2015. 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 will one of these days.

Are you a fan of the Hell House LLC franchise, and will you be checking out Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor this Devil’s Night? Or maybe on the following day, Halloween? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
