I went looking for new news on Hell Houses and I guess they are yesterday’s news because Christians do not seem to have ramped up the horror like regular haunted houses. I did find a series on YouTube made in 2002 that covered the production of one Hell House. They refer to nonChristians as “the walking dead.”
I’m going to post the first episode (I’d skip over the introduction) and then link to the rest of the episodes so you can open them up in separate windows. The quality is pretty good once you get past the host’s introduction. One hilarious moment in the first episode is when this Christian group is meeting together to discuss what kind of scary scenes they’re going to produce and one guy suggests a scene with a gay bar where two women are hitting on each other (he was completely serious). The Leader of the group jumps in and says “I really don’t want to do that” as he realizes that everyone listening is getting turned on. Again! I don’t care if you are a male goodie-two-shoes Christian–two women hitting on each is hot! All you Christian wives are gullible if you believe your husband when they say women kissing each other is disgusting.
You know what is the scariest thing about Hell Houses? That Christians lump all unbelievers in like this: wife beaters, murderers, child molesters, abortionists, homosexuals, fornicators, adulterers, etc. As an atheist, I feel kind of boring. I got my first speeding ticket for going 5 miles over the speed limit last month and that’s about how dangerous I am. Oh and I do own an unrated copy of Showgirls (it always cracks me up).
