From writer/ director Paul Etheredge-Ouzts and Joseph Wolf, the co-creator of such horror classics as Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Taking place at the famed West Hollywood Halloween Carnival, there is a serial killer on the loose. A group of four gay friends will have to fight for their lives to make it through a night where flamboyant costumes, beautiful people, drugs, music, dancing and sex are everywhere.
A wild, relentless ride that combines winning and appealing characters, unexpected surprises, and shocking scares, HELLBENT is a refreshing new classic for the horror genre.
"Paul Etheredge-Ouzts’ high-octane "Hellbent"... takes the slasher movie and gives it a clever and sexy gay twist." - Los Angeles Times
NOTE - as this question has come up more than a few times - I am adding that this is a slasher film utilizing the formula of the early 80's films of the same genre which happens to take place within the gay community. It is not an anti-gay film nor does it have an anti-gay message. And besides, Here! Films is behind it - they really wouldn't back an anti-gay film.
Admission is $5.00 - digital projection on to a big screen. Seating is on folding chairs - feel free to bring a pillow or cushion.
AND with your paid admission, you'll be automatically entered into a drawing for a retail copy of Hellbent on DVD, courtesy of Genius Products! So show up early (or at least on time), as the drawing will be before the film starts!!
