‘Hellevator’: A New Game Show Scares Contestants In An Elevator

If you like game shows, horror movies and elevators then you are in luck.  The premier of a new gameshow called Hellevator aired just last night (October 21).  And, yes, the name pretty much says it all.  The show is from executive producer Jason Blum, whose company, Blumhouse Productions, produced the Paranormal Activity, The Purge, and Insidious franchises.  So, we can safely (maybe a bad choice of words) assume it is indeed…scary.

Airing on GSN (Game Show Network), the show involves a group of contestants (usually friends) riding an elevator into the depths of an abandoned warehouse, where one by one, they have to get out on different floors to conquer some notably unsettling obstacles in order to gain money for their team… or be eliminated from the game (or “killed”, in horror movie vernacular) if they don’t make it back in time, as the Hellevator moves on without them.  If they successfully complete the mission the group will win US$50,000.

There have been many movies and television shows that use elevators in terrifying situations, but this one actually brings them into reality (sort of).  Feeling bummed that you missed the first episode?  Don’t worry, the video below provides a preview of the first 10 minutes.  If you actually saw the full episode leave us a comment on what you thought about it below.

Hellevator…just in time for Halloween!
