Storyline

A fallen man of the cloth forever bound to the fires of Hell by a pact made with Satan is unleashed to torment humankind. It was 20 years ago that a young innocent named Melissa was discovered by her neighbors drenched in blood and driven to near-insanity by the evil that claimed her father, and even as an adult, the darkness of that fateful day still haunts her. Father Thomas Donaldson was a trusted clergyman who was loved by his flock, but when Father Donaldson began to question his faith and became obsessed with the idea of getting a glimpse of heaven, the deal he so arrogantly cut with Satan to fulfill his Earthly wish left him blinded and possessed by evil. Now the man once known as Father Donaldson has become Hellinger, an unstoppable demon with a unquenchable hunger for human souls and a special place in his black heart for the girl who now thinks he was a mere figment of her imagination.

Another Troma stinker!
24 November 2008 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Hellinger (Wayne Petrucelli), a demonic spirit who looks like he failed to graduate from Cenobite school and talks as though he has severe brain damage, likes to torment a woman named Melissa (Shana Sosin), killing those around her and then boring the poor girl with protracted monologues about the devil and stuff (all delivered in his insufferable trademark drawl).

Melissa's cousin Kendall (Artie Richard) is a tough cop with a serious set of inks and a cool leather coat; he is investigating a murder, but seems to spend more time talking to Melissa's coma-inducing psychiatrist in an attempt to help her with her problems.

Meanwhile, Melissa's boyfriend is out doing very nasty things to women with a knife...

Even by Troma's low, low standards, Hellinger is very poor viewing: the muddled Hellraiser-style storyline is never scary, the dialogue is tedious and uninteresting, the acting atrocious (with Petrucelli taking the prize for worst actor), and the whole cheap-assed production reeks of amateurishness. Hell, the extreme levels of ineptitude displayed by all involved didn't even manage to make me laugh, so the film doesn't even score marks there!

However, narrowly saving this piece of garbage from the shame of receiving a 1/10 are a couple of completely gratuitous sex scenes (just like dwarfs and kung fu, they always make a film better) and a murder scene that manages to shock thanks to the over-the-top manner in which the victim is dispatched: she is brutally punched in the face, repeatedly stabbed between the legs with a knife, eaten out by her attacker (yes, literally eaten out!!!), and then raped. This is all done in the dark, and so isn't necessarily that graphic, but we see enough to get the message: this killer is one very sick puppy!
