A teen-ager feels an endless fascination for his cellular phone which will enable him to reach his aim: alluring the pretty high-school girl he's in love with. Unfortunately, this addiction will not be without negative consequences on the behavior of the boy.Written by
It's a lot of fun (...but just don't expect it to be scary)
Hellphone is the story of a boy who , not really knowing it , buy an evil phone who has a mind of its own to get the girl of his dream. It's a crazy film from beginning to the end , it goes at a crazy speed both in the writing and the direction, the camera keep zooming in,zooming out,the color are bright and the actor all have very high energy. There's a lot of dark comedy in there too (There's a scene were a fast food owner deep fried his own head)and plenty of laugh. Jean Baptiste Maunier had become very popular in France since "les choriste" and even if I must say that I don't consider myself a fan of him , I really did find him convincing in the role of a metal-head kid. But in my opinion the real star of the film is Vladimir Consigny who plays Virgile , the self obsessed bad guy in the story,he bring a lot of fun to the role ( and I'm not talking about the strip tease scene ) he's just a really different sort of villain. The last 15 minutes of the film are the best for both fans of horror and comedy. It's a really hard film to describe but if any of you saw film like "Idyle hands" or "Shawn of the dead" I am sure you will have a fun time watching this silly horror/comedy.
