Review: Bruce McDonald's Forgettable Horror 'Hellions'

18 September 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald is known for his willingness and ability to nimbly switch between genres and styles, gamely tackling everything from psychological thrillers like "Pontypool" to musical comedies like his fabled "Hard Core Logo" (championed by a young Quentin Tarantino), and directing a whole host of Canadian television in between (including, of course, "Degrassi: The Next Generation"). With the Halloween-set "Hellions," the journeyman director makes a bid for iconic horror and comes up short. What aspires to be a reproductive horror classic along the lines "Rosemary's Baby" ends up feeling like an overlong, slightly bloodier episode of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" or maybe "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" goes to hell. "Hellions" begins like any other spooky horror movie: an attractive young girl named Dora »

Sundance 2015 Poster: A Gun-toting Angel Against Hellions

23 January 2015 5:33 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Bruce McDonald’s Hellions is fast becoming one of the most buzzed about midnights at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. McDonald, a veteran with a host of strange, exciting film under his belt—including Highway 61, Hard Core Logo and Pontypool—looks to return to horror in straightforward, if visually stunning form, as a young woman takes on evil beings one Halloween…

Sundance Exclusive: Angels Get Armed In Poster For Bruce McDonald's Midnight Movie 'Hellions'

22 January 2015 2:16 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Much like like Steven Soderbergh or Richard Linklater, Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald doesn't easily fit into a single genre box. Often using his home country as a backdrop, the director has delivered movies as diverse as "Dance Me Outside," "Hard Core Logo," "The Tracey Fragments," and "This Movie Is Broken." But for his next move, McDonald is readying "Hellions," and he hopes it'll send a chill up your spine. Starring Chloe Rose, Robert Patrick, Rossif Sutherland, Rachel Wilson, Peter DaCunha, and Luke Bilyk, the horror/thriller takes place on Halloween night where more than just trick or treaters are up to trouble. Here's the official synopsis:  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. »
