Hell houses, judgment
houses, tribulation walks, etc.
Hell Houses, judgment houses, tribulation walks etc. are horrific plays,
generally organized by fundamentalist or other evangelical congregations near
the time of Halloween.
They are designed to scare visitors with what the Bible says will be their fate
if they continue to sin. After being thoroughly scared, they arrive at room that
symbolizes heaven where they are given a conservative gospel message.
The goal is for as many visitors as possible to be saved by personally repenting
of sins and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
