In Hellbenders, released on DVD on 14th May 2014 courtesy of Koch Media, 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 eternal damnation.
This is where the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints aka the Hellbenders come in. This ragtag group of Priests live in a constant state of debauchery: smoking, drinking and philandering. When an infernal demon escapes into New York City intent on cracking open the gates of Hell, this group of highly trained exorcists sin and sin again to halt the his plans to wipe out humanity.
Based on the gory graphic novel of the same name, this foul-mouthed horror comedy is a hellish blend of The Exorcist, a generous helping of Ghostbusters, and a dash of Dogma with plenty of Bad Santa attitude, Hellbenders is sure to be a future cult classic.
Hellbenders stars Clifton Collins Jr. (Transcendence, Pacific Rim), Clancy Brown (Starship Troopers, The Shawshank Redemption) Andre Royo (Bubbles in The Wire), Robyn Rikoon (Fringe), Macon Blair (Blue Ruin), Stephen Gevedon (War of the Worlds), Larry Fessenden (We Are What We Are, Bringing Out The Dead) and Dan Fogler (Fanboys, Hannibal).
