Director: Bruce McDonald
Running Time: 82 Minutes
Synopsis: On Halloween, a young pregnant woman is terrorised by pumpkin headed trick-or-treaters who are out for her unborn child.
Hellions has a great idea at its core, and then does absolutely nothing with it in a film that is a surprising mess from the director of Pontypool. Hellions seems to be part experimental journey of discovery, while a split personality also wants to play it incredibly safe. It results in a film that sets up ideas, but is too scared or lazy to explore them.
Leading the way is Dora (Rose), an unconvincing 17 year old who has just found out she’s pregnant. Unsure of how to handle this news she decides to continue Halloween celebrations as normal, by partying with her boyfriend. »

Review by Scott Clark
Hellions, the latest from Canadian director Bruce McDonald is overwhelmingly disappointing considering how impressive his 2008 horror venture Pontypool was. On Halloween night, Dora Vogel (Chloe Rose) is a fraught pregnant teenager all alone as the Pink moon looms. Shut-off from the rest of the town, a group of demonic child-like beings called Hellions threaten Dora’s body and soul as a fight for survival ensues.
The most clinging issue with Hellions is its utter lack of originality. Fans of Michael Dougherty’s fantastic Trick r’ Treat will be shocked to see the Brian Cox imp sequence dragged out to the 82 minute mark in a feature boisterously composed of genre tropes and previous endeavours. Rose is great scream-queen but she’s not getting enough to play with once Halloween night starts. »
A teenager’s Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep. After getting the unwelcome news that she’s pregnant, seventeen-year-old Dora (Chloe Rose) just wants to stay in on Halloween. But then a knock at the door delivers a gaggle of pint-sized demons after one thing: Dora’s baby. Director Bruce McDonald unleashes a hallucinatory visual and auditory assault that propels Hellions to increasingly disturbing realms of terror. Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) co-stars.

The presidential portrait is a series staple on The X-Files. And a new behind-the-scenes photo shared by returning star Gillian Anderson reveals that it is back in place. Though, last time the show was on the air in 2002, President George W. Bush was in office. And he was still in office when the last movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, hit theaters in July of 2008. Barack Obama was elected President just a few short months later, but this is the first time his presence will be felt on the show. About the President photobombing her selfie, which also includes co-stars David Duchovny and Mitch Pileggi, Gillian Anderson had this to say.
"Best photo bomb in @thexfiles history!"
Gillian Anderson tweeted out the photo, which you can see below, on Wednesday. She is seen in full character as Dana Scully, in what is presumably one of the upcoming episodes from »
Just in time for the Halloween season, check out the trailer for Hellions.
Screening earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, the movie will show in September at the Toronto International Film Festival.

We're slowly creeping into the fall season, with the last of the big budget summer tentpoles fading from the multiplex. Soon, it will be October, and that means it's time for some scary movies. Earlier today, we got a sneak peek at the The Witch, which looks terrifying. Now, we get the first trailer for Hellions, and it seems destined to become a Halloween classic!

Hellions Movie Trailer. Bruce McDonald‘s Hellions (2015) movie trailer stars Robert Patrick, Chloe Rose, Rossif Sutherland, and Rachel Wilson. Hellions‘ plot synopsis: “A teenager must survive a Halloween night from Hell when malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking at her door.” I’m slightly ashamed of not having seen Bruce McDonald’s beloved indie-horror darling Pontypool (2008) yet. I would’ve had more of an inkling of what […] »

These trick-or-treaters are not here for candy. IFC has recently debuted the official trailer for indie horror Hellions, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival in the Park City at Midnight category. Chloe Rose stars as Dora, a pregnant teenager home alone on Halloween terrorized by tiny, evil trick-or-treaters after her baby. The cast includes Robert Patrick as a cop who tries to help her. This looks very creepy, and disturbing, and just weird and totally out of place during the heat of the summer. But it's being released later in the fall, closer to Halloween, which is the perfect time to let these Hellions loose. Have fun! Here's the official Us trailer (+ a poster) for Bruce McDonald's Hellions, in high def from Apple: A teenager’s Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep.

"You have your costume picked out for tonight?" A new trailer for Bruce McDonald's Halloween horror film, Hellions, has been released, giving us a sneak peek at creepy trick-or-treaters with more than just candy in their bags.
"Strange trick-or-treaters plague conflicted teenager Dora Vogel (Chloe Rose) at her isolated home on Halloween.
Under siege by forces she can’t understand, Dora must defend both body and soul from relentless Hellions, dead-set on possessing something Dora will not give them. Set in a visually haunting landscape, Hellions redefines the boundaries of horror with its potent brew of Halloween iconography, teenage angst and desperate survival."

Let's get real for a second. Watching the trailer for Hellions is not a particularly good experience and if this movie was directed by anyone else, I'd likely be giving it wide berth and ignoring it all together but I have a love for Bruce McDonald's work that always gives him the benefit of the doubt but even I must admit this one looks particularly weird.
This Halloween tale stars Chloe Rose as a teenager who answers the door on Halloween night and is met by two creepy Trick-or-Treaters who impregnate her with their touch. Now that she's carrying Satan's spawn (or something like it) she tries to survive through the night with the help of Robert Patrick.
It sounds cheesy and completely familiar but the trailer looks ridiculously crazy in a way that is both great and scary [Continued ...] »
For a time, it looked like we’d only be seeing David Duchovny’s Mulder, Gillian Anderson’s Scully and Mitch Pileggi’s Walter Skinner returning for The X-Files event series. Recently though, The Lone Gunmen joined the fold, and now Annabeth Gish has followed suit.
Gish will reprise her role as Agent Monica Reyes, a character who became fairly central towards the end of The X-Files’ original run. If you’re not an X-Files fan, you might also recognise Annabeth Gish from The West Wing, where she played the eldest daughter of President Bartlett. More recently, she's appeared in Sons Of Anarchy, Pretty Little Liars and The Bridge.
Another original X-Files cast member has signed on to return for Fox's Untitled X-Files Revival, with Annabeth Gish set to reprise her role as FBI agent Monica Reyes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She joins a growing list of stars from the original series, such as Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully), David Duchovny (Fox Mulder), Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man). It isn't known if she will appear in just one episode of the six-episode event series, or if she will have a bigger role.
The news shouldn't be too surprising, since series creator Chris Carter stated in March that he wants the whole original cast to come back. It was also recently confirmed that the computer hacker group known as The Lone Gunmen, Dean Haglund (Ringo Langly), Tom Braidwood (Frohike) and Bruce Harwood (Byers) will be back, along with Sheila Larken as Dana Scully's mother, »
Gish's character first appeared in the show's eighth season as a recurring guest star and became a regular cast member during the final season.
Sadly her onscreen partner in crime Robert Patrick (Agent John Doggett) is unlikely to return. The actor currently has a full-time gig on one of the best-rated shows on TV, CBS' "Scorpion," and told The Mary Sue back in June:
"I'll set the record straight with you. I'm not going to do it. I'm very happy with the job I have. I'm on CBS - that's a different network - and I'm content and happy and I don't really see a reason to go and revisit that show. It's not that I wouldn't be interested. I just don't know what the reason is »

Agent Monica Reyes is officially on the case.
Annabeth Gish will once more play the G-woman in Fox’s X-Files revival, TVLine has learned.
Reyes will appear in one episode of the upcoming six-episode event series, which is set to return on Jan. 24.

Reyes was last seen in the series finale, helping Mulder and Scully’s evade capture in the New Mexico desert. »
Annabeth Gish is officially reprising her role as FBI Agent Monica Reyes in an upcoming episode of Fox’s “The X-Files” event series, the network announced Tuesday. Gish first appeared on “The X-Files” beginning with the 2001 episode “This Is Not Happening,” in which Agent Reyes helps Agent Doggett (Robert Patrick) investigating the sudden reappearance of several UFO abductees. She stayed with the series until it concluded in 2002. Gish co-starred on FX’s “The Bridge” opposite Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir in 2013 and recently shot the independent feature “Grass Stains” opposite Tye Sheridan and Kaitlyn Dever. Last year, she had a recurring role on. »

The short run of new X-Files episodes planned for early next year is becoming something of a reunion, with a variety of old faces from the show’s original run popping up. Even some we all thought were dead. You can add FBI Agent Monica Reyes, played by Annabeth Gish to the list, with word that she’s on for an episode. Reyes, alongside partner John Doggett (Robert Patrick, who has not been mentioned as returning – yet) appeared on the show in the final couple of seasons, taking over the main workload from David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully, particularly after Duchovny left the show towards the end. They were controversial additions to a series that fans were already worried was disappearing into its own mythology, but it’ll still be good to see Reyes back and catch up with the character who, like Mulder, was a believer in all things paranormal. »
When Fox announced their Untitled X-Files Revival is finally happening, we knew right away that original X-Files stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) were coming back to reprise their iconic roles. As the weeks and months passed, even more original series stars were confirmed to come back, such as Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), William B. Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man) and the computer hackers known as The Lone Gunmen, Dean Haglund (Ringo Langly), Tom Braidwood (Frohike) and Bruce Harwood (Byers). Today, TV Line reports that yet another original cast member, Sheila Larken, is coming back to play Scully's mother, Margaret Scully.
Sheila Larken will appear in The X-Files revival's second episode, entitled "Home Again". The episode was previously rumored to be a sequel to the popular Season 4 episode "Home", but that turned out to be false. The initial rumor claimed that "Home Again" will center on »

Have you ever watched “Archer” and wished the show had more elements of a post-apocalyptic dystopia? Wish granted! Fxx announced today they have picked up “Cassius and Clay” for a 10-episode freshman season. Think of it as Ray Gillette’s hillbilly family. Only instead of swinging marijuana farmers, “Cassius and Clay” focuses on two lady bandits surviving — even thriving — in a futuristic Southern wasteland.

Susan Sarandon is signed on to voice Connie Mack, the ruthless and cutthroat woman who runs Wilke by running the saloon and the brothel. Connie is engaged in a »

FX’s animated comedy “Archer” is also moving to Fxx for its seventh season next year, where it will run in tandem with the female buddy comedy “Cassius and Clay.” FX Networks announced the orders as part of its presentation Friday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton.
“Better Things,” which has a 10-episode order, revolves around the life of a single mother and working actress who is struggling to raise three daughters. Adlon stars and co-created the series with C.K. for his Pig Newton production banner and FX Prods. C.K. directed the pilot.
