September 15, 2013
Hell Baby offers a welcome alternative to the overwrought seriousness of modern horror movies with its frequently hilarious take on familiar genre tropes.
September 12, 2013
This is just about the one-billionth movie to lampoon the horror genre, but so what? It's hilarious.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 6, 2013
Like 98-minutes of 'MADtv.' I mean that in a good way.
Full Review | Original Score: B plus
September 5, 2013
Its modest (if occasionally gross-out) stabs at genre parody rarely insult our intelligence and even allow for the kind of retro deadpan silliness Mel Brooks used to underline his louder punch lines.

September 5, 2013
Evenly divided, joke-wise, between complete non-starters and uproarious setpieces that overstay their welcome.

September 3, 2013
The movie is delightfully crude in places (including an instance of relay puking) and just plain silly-clever in others.
September 1, 2013
The filmmakers satirize the often obscenely meaningless ways in which people of a certain socioeconomic strata attempt to launder their white guilt.

August 18, 2013
Hell Baby is a devilish laugh-riot, providing hellishly indulgent comedy married with lighthearted slapstick comedy - as long as you're into Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant's typical "immature" style.

July 26, 2013
It's genuinely funny, a condition all too rare in horror-comedies, comedies, and movies written by Lennon and Garant.

January 28, 2013
For every oddly specific Shakespeare reference or detour to the local po-boy joint, there's an ongoing parade of puke and an awful rubber suit with which to contend.
January 22, 2013
It doesn't reinvent the wheel after their anarchic sketch comedy show "The State," but funny is funny, and Hell Baby is very, very funny.

While not a lot of Hell Baby works... the movie does seem destined to be the sort of acquired-taste howler that will most likely attract people who recognize how ridiculous horror movies can be-and, of course, stoners.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 17, 2013
A slog through improv run amok -- a film that seems allergic toward anything that might be construed as a legitimate throughline, lest that somehow be interpreted as 'selling out,' and not subversive enough.
Full Review | Original Score: D
September 12, 2013
Given the talent involved, it's a project that sounds promising (if maybe more than slightly derivative), but it winds up an unfortunate misfire.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.6/10
September 10, 2013
The jaw drops at the drought of laughs in the horror spoof "Hell Baby," especially considering the massive amount of comic talent in front of and behind the cameras.

I can't say I didn't laugh during Hell Baby. I just didn't laugh as much as I would have liked to, or as much as I expected to.

September 6, 2013
Everything about it stinks, from the sophomoric writing to the sleep-inducing performances. But even more frightening is the feeling that the torture being inflicted by the writing-directing team of Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon will never end.
Full Review | Original Score: F
September 6, 2013
Certainly isn't the worst horror comedy of all time (see Transylmania)... But most of it is still pretty bad.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 6, 2013
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
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.
