“Prom in Hell” marks the third installment of the“In Hell”series from Audio Up, which to dateincludes recent Webby honoree for Best Limited Entertainment Series, “Halloween in Hell” (with performances and music from Machine Gun Kelly, Iann Dior, and 24kGoldn),
and Valentine’s in Hell (with music and performances by jxdn, Oliver Tree, and Iann Dior). With a heavy dose of nostalgia and callbacks to everything from John Hughes movies, to 90s Slasher films, “Prom in Hell” is a wild, raunchy, science fictional and fantastical journey through Hell, by way of high school adolescence. Danny (played by 44phantom) and Jake (played by Que) are bullied and tortured at their school – Herman Enoch Louis Lynne High (aka Hell High). When the duo unwittingly stumble into a portal to Hell and make a deal with the Devil (played by Sueco), they finally have the opportunity to redeem themselves and seek revenge…but they unlock a paranormal nightmare in the process. Will Danny and Jake succeed in vanquishing their demons, or will they die trying?
The first two episodes of “Prom In Hell” will premiere Monday, May 24th on Apple, Spotify and wherever podcasts are heard. Episodes 3 and 4 will be available on Thursday, May 27th.
