By the time Etheredge-Ouzts uncorks the Suspiria-meets-Un Chant d'Amour climax, the film has snowballed enough subtext for five Robin Wood dissertations

Homo-erotic themes aside, this is otherwise a stock scary movie which rates out as an above-average example of the genre.

Has both novelty and back-to-basics ingenuity in its favor, along with memorable characters and the deft combination of gory shocks and comic relief that's essential to the genre.

[A] handsomely styled horror picture, which also makes a good-faith effort to differentiate among the victims-to-be before it starts picking them off.

Because more time is dedicated to crafting authentic, sympathetic characters than the average horror movie, it's easier to overlook the film's often-corny dialogue and so-so special effects.

HellBent is frank enough in its depiction of gay male sexuality to make many in the general moviegoing audience squirm and just self-mocking enough to make its target audience laugh.

What you might not expect is that this queer-slanted slasher flick is actually pretty good.

Given HellBent's excellent characters, good scares, and irresistible energy, it's bound to entertain whether your date is of the same sex or otherwise.

HellBent is a gay slasher film with gorgeous bodies on display, but it lets us know that it has a brain as well.

This throwback to 1970s horror has a hilariously queer twist that makes it one of the most enjoyably crowd-pleasing fright flicks in ages.

Etheredge-Ouzts coasts on the idea that combining homosexuality with homicide is revolutionary.
