The title was selected from an online "name the movie" contest created by the producers to publicize the film. The directior was initially horrorfied at some of the initial submissions, which included such titles as "28 Gays Later", "Boy Meets Knife", and "Queer Eye for the Dead Guy". Finally, on one of the last days of the contest, "Hellbent" was submitted. See more »

First gay slasher movie ever: Fun, gory, and scary
24 July 2004 | by duce122See all my reviews

HellBent (2004) C-85 min. D: Paul Etheredge-Ouzts. Dylan Fergus, Bryan Kirkwood, Hank Harris, Andrew Levitas, Matt Phillips, Miguel Caballero, Kent James, Samuel A. Levine. Etheredge-Ouzts, who I met at the Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, directs the first gay slasher movie ever, a fun and scary film that has nothing (other than the gay angle) original about it, but also doesn't pretend to be original. A serial killer in West Hollywood develops a taste for hunky gay men and sets his focus on a group of gay kids attending a Halloween festival. Ouzts seems to have a grasp on the genre and it shows, as the film is gory, scary, and features characters the viewers actually care about and can identify with. The humor also is a major plus, as there are several laughs spread throughout the film. If this is any indication, then there will definitely be more gay slasher films (HELLBENT 2 anyone?). RATING: 8 out of 10.
