Review by Bob Ignizio
First of all, I missed a day. Real life has been busy, what can I say. Hopefully I'll get caught up and still end the month with 31 reviews, but it's looking rough. Ok, on with the review.
The creepy old Abaddon Hotel that has been the site of murder, mayhem, and reported paranormal activity is saved from demolition by tech entrepreneur Russell Wynn (Gabriel Chytry) who plans on turning it into a performance space called Insomnia. His troupe of actors will be putting on an interpretation of ‘Faust’ while a camera crew from local paranormal program Morning Mysteries, including host Vanessa Shepherd (Elizabeth Vermilyea), films the events leading up to opening night.
All this is shown in past tense, along with interviews and other relevant footage, in the faux documentary and Shudder original HELL HOUSE LLC: LAKE OF FIRE. We don’t know what exactly happened on Insomnia’s opening night as the film begins. We only know it was yet another strange and terrifying event at this seemingly cursed location.
