Every Halloween, Evangelical churches across America stage haunted houses that replace traditional ghosts and ghouls with real depictions of evil: high school cheerleaders getting abortions, gay men dying of AIDS, and children reading Harry Potter. Now, for the first time ever, this cultural phenomenon comes to New York City—with the Church's own script fully intact. Obie award-winning Les Freres Corbusier (A Very Merry Unauthorized Scientology Pageant, Boozy, Heddatron) transforms St. Ann's Warehouse into an authentic multi-chambered Hell House of horrors. Part installation, part performance, part haunted house—Hell House culminates in a celebratory hoedown with bands in the “Christian rock” tradition, punch, and a friendly game of “Pin the Sin on Jesus.” Alternately hilarious and horrifying, come celebrate like the true believers.
