Taking homage from music horror hits like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and the dark comedy of “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” HALLOWEEN IN HELL is set during Halloween, where 24kGoldn and metal mistress Dana Dentata find themselves trapped on a soundstage reminiscent of Hell, with a sadistic host who has lured them into a competition. It is there they must impress a jury of the damned (R.Kelly & Phil Spector) and rescue themselves from the clutches of evil. With each of the main cast playing fictional versions of themselves, these acclaimed musical cross-genre performers beckon listeners to follow them on a journey to hell and back. The star-studded cast includes multi-platinum Interscope Records recording artist, actor and Billboard chart topper pop culture icon, Machine Gun Kelly, rock legend Tommy Lee, acclaimed musician and performance artist Dana Dentata, multi-platinum 10K Projects recording artist iann dior, multi-platinum RECORDS/Columbia Records’ recording artist 24kGoldn, and musician/writer PHEM.
The podcast was conceived and produced by Audio Up Media CEO, Jared Gutstadt, and Machine Gun Kelly, and was written by Jimmy Jellinek. Original music (penned and produced by Gutstadt, alongside the cast) will debut in every episode and then be made available across all digital and streaming platforms. The series will be accompanied by a four-part making-of documentary to be released as bonus content.
“The ‘In Hell…’ franchise is something that will continue beyond Halloween,” says Audio Up Media CEO, Jared Gutstadt. “We have already begun production on ‘New Year’s In Hell,’ which will continue the adventure with original music and another sadistic plot meant. This ongoing series is produced to entertain and create great tent pole moments for podcast listeners surrounding various holidays and traditions that occur year round.”
