Red Band trailer for Hellbenders brings exorcism and dark comedy together beautifully


I would’ve posted this sooner had I known it was going to be this good. Hellbenders is a new dark supernatural comedy written and directed by J.T. Petty (The Borrowers, Mimic 3) and stars Clancy Brown, Clifton Collins Jr. and Dan Fogler , as these twisted priest who decide to become uber-sinners so that in the after life they can bring the worst demons to hell with them?

Something like that…anyways, it looks funny.

Hellbenders is written  and directed by J.T. Petty, based on a graphic novel he wrote himself. The film 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. The film premiered at TIFF 2012 and Lionsgate releases it to theaters and VOD on October 18th.
