Hell Baby (2013)



Critic Consensus: Though its brand of immature comedy may appeal to some, Hell Baby misses the mark with much of its humor, rendering it a largely ineffective -- and often crass -- genre sendup.

Movie Info

HELL BABY, a comedy scripted by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at The Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) marks their co-directing debut. Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) are an expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans -- a house with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for Jack and Vanessa, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F'Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa's friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa's Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer). Only the Vatican's elite exorcism team (Garant and Lennon) san save them -- or can they?(c) Millenium

Critic Reviews for Hell Baby

It soon becomes apparent that the filmmakers, many of whom worked together on "The State" and "Reno 911!", aren't committed to their film's main conceit.

September 6, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The film's reliance on female nudity for edge seems approximately as ancient as the withered hag who keeps trying to get it on with Corddry.

[It] rarely dares to be smart, settling instead for familiar gags that would have the Devil himself yawning.

September 5, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A film that's less than half as funny as its predecessor, and a sliver as clever as the original.

September 5, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This offensive, crass pastiche makes "Grown Ups 2" look like a paragon of wit and good taste.

September 5, 2013 | Rating: 0.5/4

There are genre satires, and then there are dumb comedies that wish they could qualify for that status.

Audience Reviews for Hell Baby


Funny in parts but totally all over the place, I wanted this to be better considering all the talent behind this. In the end it just never works and all the work is for nothing.

I'm afraid that this could have been fashioned by any six year old with a viewing record that includes most of the horror genre. Call it a bad version of Scary Movie..if Scary Movie were any good.

Was expecting so much more than just stand-up comedy kinda humour, but it never got beyond silly gore and dry jokes. However Leslie Bibb gave out a really great performance, she pretty much saved the film whilst Rob Corddry tried to destroy it. The film was too chattering as well, it relied too much on the dialogues and not enough action; characters all behaved in an unrealistic way, I didn't crack a single laugh at once. Well, I suppose for a low budget film you really cannot do much but to utilise what you've got. If you are into something like disaster movie or epic movie but without any references then you should watch this.
