Hellbenders
A scene from 'Hellbenders'
Lionsgate has picked up Hellbenders, the horror comedy written and directed by JT Petty and starring Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr., Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair and Dan Fogler. The film had its premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival where the genre crowd seemed to appreciate its comedic take on demonic possession.
 
The Plot:
 
The movie follows the exploits of the Brooklyn-based Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, known as Hellbenders, a team of lewd and blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery in order to be damnation-ready so they can drag the worst of demons back to Hell. When one of the foulest demons possess one of their own and threatens the existence of both Brooklyn and the world, the Hellbenders’ faith is tested.
