Official Trailer for Indie Horror 'Hellions' Featuring Robert Patrick
These trick-or-treaters are not here for candy. IFC has recently debuted the official trailer for indie horror Hellions, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival in the Park City at Midnight category. Chloe Rose stars as Dora, a pregnant teenager home alone on Halloween terrorized by tiny, evil trick-or-treaters after her baby. The cast includes Robert Patrick as a cop who tries to help her. This looks very creepy, and disturbing, and just weird and totally out of place during the heat of the summer. But it's being released later in the fall, closer to Halloween, which is the perfect time to let these Hellions loose. Have fun!
Here's the official US trailer (+ a poster) for Bruce McDonald's Hellions, in high def from Apple:
A teenager’s Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep. After getting the unwelcome news that she’s pregnant, seventeen-year-old Dora (Chloe Rose) just wants to stay in on Halloween. But then a knock at the door delivers a gaggle of pint-sized demons after one thing: Dora’s baby. Director Bruce McDonald unleashes a hallucinatory visual and auditory assault that propels Hellions to increasingly disturbing realms of terror. Hellions is directed by veteran Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald, of Knock Knock, Roadkill, Highway 61, Hard Core Logo and Picture Claire previously. The screenplay is by Pascal Trottier. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. IFC Films will release McDonald's Hellions in theaters starting September 18th.

First thing first; the poster looks very good. Second, it's a bit weird, which doesn't have to be bad, but I'm taken by presence of Robert Patrick. He looks a bit high in this, doesn't he?

What if the French movie 'Inside' was trying too hard? Also, the trailer shows too much, but that's SOP these days.

Well I think it looks really cool.. visually, that is. I dig the color filters, and the killer kids look really wicked (plus, great poster). I don't know whether it'll be any good story-wise, though.

Spoiler: Robert Patrick dies.

Not a big fan of the Halloween theme, but this looks great. Like if an art house type movie mated with a Genny Tartakovsky cartoon.

The color corrections made it look too Candian independent film. The rest how ever could work

Dunno. Feels a bit like Scarecrow's toddlers. As if the CGI budget was empty so the kids had to put bags over their heads. No too scary yet.

Uhhh. This looks dumb.
