The diverse cast of Hell Baby discuss William Shakespeare's Hamlet, practice vomitting and learn about the devil's practices in our exclusive gag reel from the Blu-ray and DVD which debuts December 31. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant write, direct and star in this comedy that follows an expecting couple who realize their starter house in New Orleans may also be the home to an evil presence. Watch as cast members Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer and the two writer-directors try to keep it together and get their lines right.
The moment Jack (Rob Corddry) and his pregnant wife Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) move into their ramshackle New Orleans starter home, they realize something isn't right. First an overly friendly guy living in the crawl space (Keegan Michael Key) informs them the house has been the scene of multiple murders. Then a naked old lady appears »
Title: Hell Baby Directors: Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon Starring: Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Riki Lindhome, Michael Ian Black, Alex Berg A disappointingly scattershot, sigh-inducing comedy from the creators of “Reno 911!,” Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, “Hell Baby” represents a slog through improvisation run amok. A horror comedy that doesn’t make hay out of lampooning the genre (which is totally fine), Garant and Lennon’s joint feature directorial debut seems downright allergic toward anything that might be construed as a legitimate throughline, lest that somehow be interpreted as “selling out,” and not subversive enough.

Altogether, their films have earned an impressive $1.4 at the box office. They have also written about this, and other accomplishments in their 2011 book Writing Movies for Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at the Box Office and You Can Too! It was inevitable then that they would want to try their hand at directing a film together. The result is the new horror comedy Hell Baby.

When you write about movies, it’s important to take every film very, very, very seriously — even if it’s a horror-comedy called Hell Baby.
We had hoped to have an honest, thoughtful discussion with the cast and filmmakers from this Sundance midnight movie, but not every interview goes as expected, and this one turned out to be a frustrating experience for everyone involved.
That was mainly due to to the sneering, combative behavior of Rob Corddry, who co-stars in Hell Baby with Leslie Bibb as expectant parents who battle demonic possession when they move into a haunted house during their pregnancy. »
