Movie Info

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.

It seems like a charming throwback to 1980s films, like "Ghostbusters" and "Police Academy," that featured motley, sloppy brigades of justice.3

Aided by capable if unnecessary 3D effects, Petty displays a flair for staging violent action, but he's trapped inside a broad comic set-up that doesn't mesh with the story's innate meanness.

Hellbenders doesn't take any risks, leaving the horror at too low a level and trying to get comedy from a situation where there isn't any, making this nothing more than a very forgettable film.

It's a shame this story about sinning saints doesn't provide the necessary shock and awe entertainment, because director J.T. Petty is sitting on some serious cult cinema potential - it just never is achieved.

Expends so much time and effort in trying to become the next big cult sensation that it never gets around to simply being a good movie.

Hellbenders mostly feels like a doodle, an amiable lark that will amuse genrephiles and anyone else with their sights set appropriately low.

Sloppy, choppy, and weird but there's a lot of lowbrow energy and goofy charm too.
