From the twisted minds that brought you the “Paranormal Activity” franchise, comes Hellevator: a terrifying new show that dares three friends to ride a haunted elevator into the depths 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. Two comedic masterminds pull the strings throughout the game – taking delight in the horror. Who will make it back to the surface with the prize, and who will be trapped forever?
Sounds simple right? Imagine you and two friends stuck in one of Jigsaw’s puzzles, but instead of playing for your life, you play for $50,000. Blumhouse and The Soska Sisters go all out in creating their games, making sure every terrifying little detail is covered.
