The Playlist nabbed the first festival one-sheet for Bruce McDonald’s (Hard Core Logo, Pontypool) Halloween-themed Hellions, which will World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. It features an angel with a loaded gun. What’s she aiming at?
Robert Patrick will star as “Corman”, a tough-as-nails cop who comes to the aid of a teenager (newcomer Chloe Rose) plagued by three malevolent trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Rossif Sutherland (Reign), Luke Bilyk (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”), and Rachel Wilson (Republic of Doyle) also star.
“Strange trick-or-treaters plague conflicted teenager Dora Vogel (Chloe Rose) at her isolated home on Halloween. Under siege by forces she can’t understand, Dora must defend both body and soul from relentless Hellions, dead-set on possessing something Dora will not give them. Set in a visually haunting landscape, Hellions redefines the boundaries of horror with its potent brew of Halloween iconography, teenage angst and desperate survival.“
