  • msmichel's rating of the film Hellbenders

    A TIFF Midnight Madness selection in 2012 that I can only guess was programmed because of the two films the director made previously (S&M Man, The Burrowers). This blend of horror and blasphemous comedy fails to excel at either and dies a painfully slow death on screen. The film needed to either amp up the comedy or the horror to succeed. A total miss.
