While his celebrated career spans film and television, Canadian director Bruce McDonald holds a special place in the hearts of horror fans around the world for his remarkable 2008 film PONTYPOOL. While a very different type of horror film, HELLIONS maintains McDonald’s fascination with the genre, and he once again grabs our attention in ways uniquely his own. Following the story of a pregnant teenager who has to protect herself against a legion of bizarre, terrifying monsters, HELLIONS is also the first film to be shot predominantly in Infrared. This combination is memorable as much for its fresh takes on teenage sexuality and motherhood, as for its aggressive sensory assault. Unforgettable in every way, HELLIONS has been wooing audiences across the globe since debuting at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, a film not to be missed.
