The Legend Of Hell House

Click below for the trailer to the film Hell House.
We've all heard of them, but I can't say I've ever really watched or read much about Church Hell Houses. This documentary looks really interesting. In a fun way. In a "I can't believe I'm seeing what I'm seeing" way.

Guns don't kill people. The Reaper does.

Hey, they're saving soles! Or something.

I bet the coveted role is that of the Reaper. It'd be great to play his part with a dash of humor.

It just all seems so hypocritical to act out that which you are condemning. Like the kids dancing. Yeah, like they're not having fun.

You can instant-watch it on Netflix.

Just, you know, in case other readers are curious.

Rot said...

I was going to check tonight when I got home.

I'll make a point to watch this.

Get their side of the story.

Oh, sorry.

That very interesting.

Yeah I bet those kids are having fun dancing, lol. The whole thing is such a weird concept, a little bit like brainwashing.

This is one of the reasons I've given up on the human race. Why oh why won't the rapture come to clean out all these fools? This is exactly what I meant about the jerks making their little children hold up the abortion signs on the street corners.

This is a really enthralling documentary. It left me more terrified than most horror movies ever could. Life is so much scarier than fiction.

I have to respectuflly disagree. I do believe Satanic evil exists and can cause people to act out in ways that go against their very will to live (ie killing themselves). Sure, the gun is ultimately at "fault" but I do believe in posession.

I dunno....I mean, I know I'm a minority on this board so I don't *really* feel very comfortable saying much but I kinda was rubbed the wrong way by this post.

I feel more sorry than angry at people who do these Hell Houses. I think I can understand where they are coming from in a very small way. I don't agree, but I certainly don't think they are all crazies, like a lot of the readers tend to think.

Normally, I wouldn't even post on this but man, my feathers felt ruffled. It's the girl in me, lol. Gettin' all emotional.

Carry on!

Hey, I totally respect what you're saying, Sara. And I hope we're still cool. I always look forward to your posts.

I think this is one of those things where both sides have a tendency to get personal because one group of people is condemning another group of people, back and forth. Hell Houses have always been debated. I think it's the finger-pointing that gets most critics.

I'm going to make a point to watch this though. I want to hear their side.

Sara said...

Aww, I didn't mean to suggest that you are creating a hostile environment here on your board by posting controversial stuff. It is your board after all, so post away!

I think my emotions get the best of me when discussing religion, and I probably should just stay away from posting alltogether when these things come up. In regards to the subject, of course I agree finger pointing can be very distasteful to say the least! And, can do a lot more harm than any good they could hope for.

Thanks for the kind words, though, Rot. I really respect you. We're definitely cool. :)

Rot said...

Cool : )

As a Christian, I've always been a bit perturbed by the "Hell House" concept. To me, it is an over-the-top scare tactic, and I don't believe that they do a whole lot to turn people to Christianity. In fact, I'd say they probably have the opposite effect.

Of course, these types of events are acted out by a VERY small fringe group of fanatical Christians, who really don't represent Christianity as a whole at all.

I watched this via Netflix last night. And as a former Christian, I can say that I made the right choice. This was a disgusting and horrifying movie. I knew people like that and they walk among us. TERRIFYING.

That all being said, there were plenty of laughs to be had too. Anyone else notice when they painted a pentagram for the "occult scene," it was really a hexagram? The Star of David. I also laughed when one of the straight-laced Christian guys suggested they have a lesbian scene. He seemed excited and not the least big repulsed at the idea of it.
