Red Band Trailer Lays Out How the “HELLBENDERS” Roll
JT Petty, the filmmaker behind fantastic, and serious-minded horror western THE BURROWERS has turned his attention to something of a rowdy horror comedy in HELLBENDERS. The tale of the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints and their aim to break bad so that they may attract possessing demons and set the evil straight, looks like shitty attitude-boasting, New York fun.
Starring a mean ensemble that includes Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr, Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon and Dan Fogler, the official rundown is as follows: There are demons so terrible that no mortal man of God could successfully drive them back to Hell. The only option is for the exorcist himself to invite possession and then commit suicide, dragging along the demon to damnation – so the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints – or Hellbenders– was formed. A group of elite, highly-trained exorcists, they live in a constant state of debauchery so they will be ready to go to Hell at any moment. When an infernal Norse demon called BLACK SURTR escapes into New York City intent on cracking open the gates of Hell, the Hellbenders must use every ounce of their debauchery to battle the demon and save the planet from eternal damnation!
HELLBENDERS is out from Lionsgate in theaters and on demand October 18.
