I saw Hellions at Sundance earlier this year, and I freakin' loved it! It's no secret that I'm a sucker for horror films, but there's a special place in my dark heart for horror films that are set during Halloween. Hellions was a twisted nightmarish romp that I described in my review as being a "psychedelic thrill ride of insanity."
"A teenager’s Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep. After getting the unwelcome news that she’s pregnant, seventeen-year-old Dora (Chloe Rose) just wants to stay in on Halloween. But then a knock at the door delivers a gaggle of pint-sized demons after one thing: Dora’s baby. Director Bruce McDonald unleashes a hallucinatory visual and auditory assault that propels Hellions to increasingly disturbing realms of terror."
These evil-ass demons are called Hellions, and they are dressed in terrifying kids' Halloween costumes. Not only do they want to take the girl's newborn baby, they also want her soul. She does everything she can to fight back and protect herself, and one of the most refreshing aspects about the movie is that she makes smarter decisions than characters in other horror movies.
The movie also stars Robert Patrick, and it's set to be released in theaters and VOD on September 18th. If you're a fan of horror movies, then you've got to check this one out!
