Editorial Reviews

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!

The concepts of demonic possession and exorcisms fascinate me, which partially explains why I like horror movies so much. As any horror buff can tell you, hundreds, if not thousands, of films about these subjects have been made over the years. But, as such, few have come up with concepts as unique as the one from HELLBENDERS. The idea of exorcists who have to kill themselves in order to take demons back to Hell is very original. And as you will see in this horror-comedy, it is also very intense and entertaining.

Before I begin this review, I must warn you up front: if movies like DOGMA offended you, then do not watch HELLBENDERS. The subject matter is slightly similar, as is the language and coarseness throughout. But if you found DOGMA hilarious like I did, then you’re in for a real treat; HELLBENDERS is a riotous blast with humorous characters and an intriguing plot.

The film is shot well and looks great, both from a 2D and 3D aspect. Many films use 3D in an attempt to draw an audience, regardless of whether it enhances the experience or not. But HELLBENDERS uses 3D to its advantage and creates a more immersive atmosphere for the viewer. As a result, the entertainment value skyrockets when you watch it in this format.

Likewise, the acting is excellent as well. I particularly enjoy seeing Clancy Brown onscreen; I’ve been a fan of his work since I first saw him way, way back in 1984, in THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION. Over the years, this guy has played so many different parts in so many different types of film and television that it’s hard to tie him to a specific genre. This diversity highlights his talent as an actor and brings more credibility to each role he undertakes. Clifton Collins Jr.

I'm a Roman Catholic but I Do like my funny - and in humor anything is fair game, and it was clear no "slam" was intended towards Catholics here - just having a good shot at all and so, I very much enjoyed the film. Some folks might get twerked a bit at the Opus Dei catholic group depicted here, but I see plenty of folks just like that in real life (and I am fairly devout) and they can be that moronic in the area of the demonic - like all things, depends on who you talk to. All that aside - a funny and fully irreverant film about these people who have more faith, than the twerps trying to shut them down - that is the big joke - they go to extremes for the sake of faith that the critics against them will - so if your humor is non-denominational - you will like this movie. The actors played their parts very well - script I felt was well thought out - make ups were good and not over the top comical - and a good roller coaster ride of a film.

I rarely comment on movies feeling I lack training to be anything other than a personal critic. However, there were only 3 reviews at the time I rented it and the film was terrible. Potential renters may be looking for additional reviews. Hellbenders is erratic, poorly scripted and staged, and the effects are amateurish. Out of hundreds of films we've rented, this, and one other, we actually just turned off and absorbed the cost, which was higher because it is a "pre-release." The story line has great potential (exorcists who must maintain a high level of sinning to be certain they go to hell if they decide to serve as host for the demon possessing the victim they are exorcising - great potential for a comedic dimension to an otherwise traditionally dark and gory theme) and the trailer is convincing, but the film itself is terrible.

***SPOILER ALERT***
The title “Hellbenders” refers to a Brooklyn-based group of interfaith ministers whose peculiar practice involves racking up sins. These are debauched exorcists on a suicide mission: misbehave enough to invite possession, then commit suicide, dragging the demon with them to the underworld.
There are some good lines. (“I’m a woman, and you’re a Catholic; everything I do is a sin to you.”) But this feature film, written and directed by J. T. Petty, opens unpromisingly. We’re introduced to the group in their squalid home base, where they broadcast each intended sin (“lust,” “wrath” or “sloth”) as they go about daily activities (looking at pornography, punching one another or wallowing in filth). Like failed sketch comedy, the gag becomes prescriptive and runs a little too long.
But the high-concept mission starts to jell, and it seems like a charming throwback to 1980s films, like “Ghostbusters” and “Police Academy,” that featured motley, sloppy brigades of justice.
The cast is put to good use to play the familiar types of this genre. Clancy Brown is terrific as the salty, foul-mouthed leader. His crew includes the schlump uttering non sequiturs, the note-taking nerd and the hot woman in a gang of boys. The crucial antagonist (their Stay Puft Marshmallow Man) is a Norse demon named Black Surtr, who is 30 years behind schedule of invading New York, so the ’80s influence is explicit in every way.
But rather than one of those big-budget films cited above, this movie has the humor and insouciant pileup of bizarre and disgustingly beautiful images of a cult classic on late-night cable. Even the nongore images are disturbing and unforgettable, like one involving a bunny, baby oil and a misplaced receipt.
