“The Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, a team of blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery, work to drag the worst of demons back to Hell.”
Hellbenders, which stars the likes of Clifton Collins Jr., Clancy Brown and Bubbles from The Wire (Andre Royo), seems like the exact sort of just right release for the October VOD season. While attending the midnight selection at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, our own Nathan Adams said that Hellbenders “ends the reign of generic exorcism movies by injecting some raunchy jokes and sickening gore into its proceedings. No movie with a sex rabbit could be bad, could it?”
No, my dear Nathan, it couldn’t.
So with Hellbenders set for a VOD release this weekend, we’ve arranged a little taste of the foul-mouthed priests hunting demons-palooza for you, our ever-discerning and passionate readers.
In the clip below, you’ll see as this Order of Hellbound Saints take on a group of demons/walking dead with whatever weapons they have on-hand. Which, quite comically, includes a gun that has run out of bullets and a few excavation tools. Yes, that’s also Balls of Fury luminary Dan Fogler in there.
