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.

waist of a good idea
20 January 2005 | by thewag777See all my reviews

The start of the movie showed promise. I was expecting a brilliant psychological and theological horror, sort of the Hellraiser. Hellinger's theology was somewhat based on Buddhism. That is impressive for a low budget, gore-mongering, sex laden horror flick. But there were two major problems with this film. 1) That scene where the rapist brutally murdered and raped that woman had nothing to do with the plot and was so disgusting I have spent weeks trying to remove the image from my head, it won't go away. This should have been left out of the movie all together. 2) All that imagination building up a great plot and it fell apart in the end. That is one of the worst endings I have ever seen, but I won't spoil it for you.

I don't say this often, but if you haven't seen this movie, don't! For the love of God don't! It is not worth it due to reason number 1 stated above. I gave this movie 3 stars only because it could have been good. What a waist!!!
