First I have to say, you have to have an open mind if you’re willing to see this horror movie. It has a great deal to do with religion and might offend a lot of people. I got offended and I am very open minded. Basically the whole movie revolves around religion and demons. Hellbenders contains mystery, comedy, suspense a few good action scenes that capture my attention but I did fall asleep during the movie so it couldn’t of been all that good.
Hellbenders is a horror film about a group of six priests who call themselves the Hellbound Saints from the Brooklyn Parish. They commit all types of sins (lust, violence, cheating, cursing, etc.) so that they can fight/kill demons. The logic behind the priest killing demons is that if they committed enough sins so they can invite the demons into their bodies and then commit suicide so they die along with the demon and take them to the underworld (Hell). Clancy Brown (The Trials of Cate McCall, Homefront, Sparks) played the leader of the group and he has a really bad foul mouth in this movie.
There is not much to say about Hellbenders except it failed big time and surely will offend a lot of people. Director J.T. Petty (Blood Red Earth, The Burrowers, Soft for Digging) could not have done better because I think the script hit rock bottom from the very beginning.
