Lionsgate Home Entertainment and Film Arcade are going to hell, as they’ve acquired varying rights to J.T. Petty’s horror comedy movie Hellbenders for North America and select foreign territories, reports Variety. We reviewed the film out of this past September’s TIFF.
Film Arcade plans a US theatrical release with the release date announcement expected to come shortly. Meanwhile, Lionsgate Home Entertainment will be handling the post-theatrical release of the film in the US, Canada and India.
“It follows the exploits of the Brooklyn-based Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints — known as Hellbenders, a team of lewd and blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery in order to be ready so they can drag the worst of demons back to Hell. Their faith of the Hellbenders is tested when one of the foulest demons possess one of their own and threatens the existence of both Brooklyn and the world.”
Hellbenders stars Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair and Dan Folger. The film was shot in digital 3D.
