Sundance Clip: Hellions Has a Killer Look and a Creepy Vibe



Pontypool and Hard Core Logo director Bruce McDonald is hitting Sundance this year with Hellions, a Halloween-set horror film that Shock’s already heard “people will go crazy for.” Now, a new clip reveals both its suspenseful vibe and unique, infrared-tinged aesthetic. 

From the Sundance Guide: It is Halloween night in the town of Waterford, the so-called Pumpkin Capital of the World. Alone at home, teenager Dora Vogel is about to have a very long night. Free to roam undetected among the small town’s trick-or-treaters, a group of masked demonic beings knock on unsuspecting Dora’s door. Before long, she is cut off from the outside world, under siege in her isolated home for reasons she does not understand. Alone in the dark, Dora will need to defend both her body and her soul from the relentless evil beings known as hellions.

Hellions, starring Chloe Rose and Robert Patrick, premieres Sunday, January 25th as part of the Park City at Midnight section of the Sundance Film Festival. For more, visit Sundance.
