Halloween may still be more than two months away, but IFC
Midnight wants to dive in a little early this year with the release
of their new horror film, “Hellions.” The Bruce McDonald-directed film premieres in theaters, digital and VOD on September 18, and the distributor has released a new trailer to whet your appetites for a harrowing visual and auditory assault.
“Hellions” stars “Degrassi: The Next Generation”
alum Chloe Rose as 17-year-old Dora, who has just received the unwelcome news
of her pregnancy. Before she can really process what this means for her life, a knock at her door sends much
more to worry about when she’s met with a group of childlike demons who seem to want
nothing more than to torment and terrorize her.
The trailer opens with the calm before the storm in a quiet
moment between Dora and her boyfriend, but quickly sounds off the always
unsettling echoes of children’s laughter just before the revelation of Dora’s
pregnancy. It gets darker from there with the start to the worst Halloween Dora will ever experience, promising a film that is as disturbing as it is
“Hellions” hits theaters, digital and VOD September
18. Take a look at the trailer above.
