Critic Reviews for Hellbent
A genre cheapie from its digital-video camerawork to its Casiotone soundtrack to its bland, buff cast, the movie is a cultural watershed in a dry gulch.
A loyal gay audience may appreciate the novelty, but horror fans can find junk like this lining the shelves of any video store.
The film goes through the motions familiar from mainstream slasher movies, but without an underlying logic motivating the action, the film becomes an exercise in blood-spattered boredom.
This isn't a particularly good movie, and it's offensive in the way mid-range low-budget slasher shows usually are. But it works better than some.
Audience Reviews for Hellbent
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.
A surprisingly effective slasher flick - the meagre budget often shows, but Hellbent 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.
