I love good horror comedies so I was incredibly stoked when I saw the first, really cool looking, stills from JT Petty’s Hellbenders. The film premiered during the Midnight Madness portion of TIFF this past week, and I’m hoping I like it a bit more than Brad (Mr Disgusting) when I finally see it. It’s not that he didn’t like the film, he just didn’t really think it stuck the landing.
“‘Hellbenders’ is highly ambitious filmmaking that works just enough to make it worth a view. There are quite a few gut busting laughs, creative scares, and even more gore for the horror junkie. Unfortunately, it just runs out of steam by the finale.”
