Trivia

Director Tom Costabile was able to recruit Sound Designer Frank Serafine in late 2014 of the "Star Trek" and "Tron" films. Frank also had theme park experience by developing the sound design for classic rides such as "Space Mountain" and "The Marvel Experience", which Costabile claims is how he wanted Hell to be; a ride. It wasn't until the cast and crew screening in May of 2016 that Costabile realized Frank's name was the same as the antagonist and her husband in the film. Serafine is the evil voodoo priestess who drives the story, and Frank is her husband's name who created the conflict that exists in the film. See more »

Doodoo
25 February 2017 | by begobSee all my reviews

During a boozy vacation at her cousin's place in Hollywood a sweetheart dabbles in her voodoo heritage and summons up demons from the past.

First person POV horror that starts with a ropey opening sequence but settles into a naturalistic best-buds tour of the low rent attractions of LA. The actors are pretty good, creating sympathetic characters, and the dialogue trickles along in a well paced set up.

The back story seems over ambitious, and about half way through suspicions are confirmed as the concept hits a brick wall. The first warning sign comes in an over-egged night-vision fright at about 20 mins, which shows an insensitivity to true horror. Then comes the final stoner hallucination sequence, which is obviously a labour of love but about as horror as the cover art of an '80s metal album - poorly structured and barely relevant to the set up. Also quite prudish, with almost zero skank in the exploitation scenes. In the end I wasn't bothered about figuring out if we'd come full circle on the opening sequence.

Set design for that final sequence is elaborate, but the most interesting element is the sound, with lots of hellish voices and insectoid effects.

Overall: Plenty of effort spent on a weak concept.
