Hellbent Reviews

October 14, 2005
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.

The horror in the film is mediocre at best.

A loyal gay audience may appreciate the novelty, but horror fans can find junk like this lining the shelves of any video store.

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.

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.
September 16, 2005
Writer-director Paul Etheredge-Ouzts doesn't know how to create anything resembling suspense.

Either it's a truly lousy retread of horror-movie clichés, or it's a mildly amusing sendup of them.
September 16, 2005
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.

If audiences have been waiting for a gay slasher film, their wait might be over, but their appetite will not be sated.

Aa hard-charging horror movie with a clever gay twist.

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.
September 13, 2005
The scariest thing about Hellbent is that somebody thought making this humorless gaysploitation slasher flick would be a good idea.
