Holy Hell is the over-the-top, outrageous, sexually-deviant, blood-drenched story of Father Augustus Bane: a priest pushed too far who begins praying to a revolver and hunting down the gangsters who killed his parishioners. In the vein of recent alternative horror/comedies like "Machete" and "Hobo with a Shotgun", HOLY HELL is a modern take on 60's and 70's B-Movie and Exploitation film tropes. The goal of this feature length movie is to break through every limit set by film, taste and reasonable societal behavior: all with anarchic glee. Written by Ryan LaPlante

Oh My God!
11 November 2015 | by ikonmediahouseSee all my reviews

This movie sets out to be offensive, blasphemous and hysterically funny. Well, it does that. It wins hands down! Totally and utterly brilliant.

Strong performances and the actor, director was incredible. I was intimidated by the actor portraying the psychotic father. I loved the flow of the movie, it is dark, sick, funny, irreverent, gory, hysterical, dramatic, a master stroke of cinematography.

This is a movie that if you love comedy, you are going to love. If you have an inappropriate sense of humour, then this is YOUR movie! If you are gay/straight religious/atheist there is something to shock you, and make you laugh your head off.

Have fun! I know I did.
