Hellbent is proof that gay slasher films can be just as tedious and mediocre as straight ones. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

A group of gay friends is celebrating Halloween in West Hollywood, Calif., a neighborhood that's being prowled by a killer wearing a devil's mask. One of them, Eddie (Dylan Fergus), who works for the police, brings the others through some woods to check out a recent murder scene. They ignore the mask-wearing killer, who follows the group to a club, where he starts decapitating them one at a time -- until the only ones left are Eddie and Jake (Bryan Kirkwood), a potential love interest.

    Interesting setting and characters. Terrible plot and serial killer. So a serial killer that stalks this group of gay friends and killing them one by one... No motivation what so ever. It's a melodramatic slasher with some gay twists.

    Did taking place amid the gay scene in Hollywood make a difference with this slasher film? No, no it didn't. It spends so much time exercising the gay angle of the film that it forgets to be a slasher. Or entertaining. Pass on it.

    This was exactly what I wanted it to be! A mindless slasher flick with some super cheesy moments! Just like the good ol' days! It's not meant to be scary or intelligent. Just fun! Everyone's brain needs a rest every now and again! The slasher genre should be proud of this lovely little addition! There should be more gay slasher flicks anyway!

    A surprisingly effective slasher flick - the meagre budget often shows, but <i>Hellbent</i> has been made with a fair amount of conviction and has some very effective moments. The usual trapping and clichés of the genre are in evidence but there's some nicely skewed sequences. The 'First Gay Slasher' badge doesn't really add to much in and of itself except add a bit of novelty value, but there's a genius use of a character's disability in the final showdown and the leads are affable. It's also very funny in parts and nicely paced. Decent.
