We're chatting with the Adams Family, the stars and creators of the wildly wonderfully weird Hellbender. When I say "creators" I mean — written, directed, produced, scored, and edited by. They're a family and a full-blown production studio and they are a hell of a lot of fun.
Hellbender is their latest creation and focuses on 16-year-old Izzy (Zelda Adams) who suffers from a rare illness that has kept her isolated on a mountaintop with her mother (Toby Poser) her whole life. As Izzy begins to question her sickness, she also begins to rebel against her confinement and secretly befriends Amber (Lulu Adams), another girl living on the mountain. This newfound happiness is derailed after she eats a live worm as part of a juvenile game, unleashing an insatiable and violent hunger within her. To understand the hunger, Izzy must learn the dark secrets of her family's past and the ancient power in her bloodline. Check out our exclusive chat with the Adams — Zelda, John, Toby, and Lulu!
Hellbender is now streaming on Shudder.
