Clifton Collins Jr. and Clancy Brown want to take some demons straight to Hell in the red band trailer for Hellbenders
I thought this evening we could use something a little silly.
The red band trailer for horror comedy HELLBENDERS has made it online, and I want to know why I didn't know about this sooner. You've got Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr, and Dan Fogler as a group of unapologetic sinners who just happen to be qualified exorcists. Their mission in life is to take demons back to Hell no matter what the means.
The story comes from the comic from JT Petty (THE BURROWERS) who is also serving as writer and helmer on the film. It's nice to see something like this when half-assed found footage and possession films take over the horror genre. Thank you James Wan for the break with THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS 2. I'd actually like to see more legit horror comedies, and I don't mean those awful horror spoofs.
Check out the trailer below. HELLBENDERS opens in limited theaters and VOD on October 18, 2013.
Synopsis: There are demons so terrible that no mortal man of God could successfully drive them back to Hell. The only option is for the exorcist himself to invite possession and then commit suicide, dragging along the demon to damnation -- so the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints -- or Hellbenders -- was formed. A group of elite, highly-trained exorcists, they live in a constant state of debauchery so they will be ready to go to Hell at any moment. When an infernal Norse demon called BLACK SURTR escapes into New York City intent on cracking open the gates of Hell, the Hellbenders must use every ounce of their debauchery to battle the demon and save the planet from eternal damnation.
