Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
GSN, has greenlit eight episodes of a new Horror themed game show, HELLEVATOR. The upcoming new show from Blumhouse dares contestants to survive a series of challenges from the depths of an abandoned warehouse. The new series is expected to premiere later this year.
In HELLEVATOR a team of three friends rides a haunted elevator into various levels of an abandoned warehouse. One player must get out on each floor and conquer a frightening challenge in order to earn money for the team. But if they don’t make it back in time, the elevator moves on without them. Horror film icons Jen and Sylvia Soska, aka the Twisted Twins, pull the strings throughout the game taking delight in the Horror.
HELLEVATOR is produced by Matador and Blumhouse Productions in association with Lionsgate Television. Executive producers are Jason Blum, Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin of Matador.
“The teams from Blumhouse and Matador have created a frighteningly fun and spooky game environment,” says Amy Introcaso-Davis, Executive Vice President of Programming and Development for GSN. “Horror and game enthusiasts alike will love HELLEVATOR’s’ wild ride of fear, suspense, and unrelenting challenges.”
“Our company has always wanted to create a Horror themed game show,” says executive producer Jason Blum. “HELLEVATOR is a unique and new way to scare the living hell out of people, and we are excited to be partners with GSN and Matador.”
“You’ve never seen anything like this show,” says executive producer Todd Lubin. “The contestants have almost no idea what they’re in for and then find themselves immersed in a horror story where they have to move past their deepest fears, to both survive and win money.”
HELLEVATOR will air on GSN this fall.
