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.

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

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.

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.
