Clifton Collins Jr

Hellbenders

“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.

Hellbenders

When it comes to horror, it feels like no subgenre is replicated most than the exorcism. And why shouldn’t it? Watching possession play out on film is a great and gruesome way to make make your audience cringe. After the fiftieth or so time you sit down to watch a nice normal girl’s life get ruined by Satan, though, it starts to get a little stale. But the sinning and swearing members of the Order of the Hellbound Saints from J.T. Petty‘s Hellbenders have arrived to spin that premise on its head (sorry). The blasphemous men (and woman) of God are a special force that, rather than waiting for exorcism cases to appear, live as sinfully as possible to bring the demons to them first so that they can battle it out and send them back to hell. It’s dealing with the problem directly at its source. True, this team that consists of cult hero Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Samantha Buck, and Dan Fogler is hunting demons and doing good, but Ghostbusters this is not. Hellspawn are a bit bigger of a problem to deal with than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and just because these characters are ministers doesn’t mean they’re ones you want to introduce your children to at the movie theater. As Collins’ character puts it in the trailer, he’s your Father, but he ain’t your fuckin’ dad. Check out the very NSFW trailer for yourself here:

The new trailer for The Experiment promises to eat the weak or at least release some battery acid into your bloodstream with tension and social commentary. History and Psychology buffs will recognize the story as The Stanford Prison Experiment which saw volunteers divided into two groups to see how normal people would respond when given power over others or seeing their rights taken away. Such a fantastic premise for a film – and adding Academy favorites Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker to the bill is a masterstroke – so why is it going straight to DVD again?

MikeJudgeInterview

Are you ready for the most high energy interview of all time? That’s too bad, because Mike Judge is a pretty mono-toned guy. Luckily, what he has to say is pretty damned interesting, and as a bonus you get to look at my ugly mug on video. Seriously, I’m like the Charlie Rose of the internet.
