Jinga Films Picks Up Hellions for International Distribution
This news makes me happy!! Filmmaker Bruce McDonald, the mind behind the fantastic 2008 meta-horror film, PONTYPOOL, has just gotten his latest horror offering, HELLIONS, picked up for international distribution by Jinga Films. HELLIONS is directed by McDonald, is written by Pascal Trottier, and stars Chloe Rose, Robert Patrick, Rossif Sutherland, Rachel Wilson, Luke Bilyk, Peter DaCunha, and Emir Hirad Mokhtarieh. Check out the plot crunch:
Chloe Rose (Degrassi: The Next Generation) stars as a pregnant teenager who must survive a Halloween night from hell when malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking at her door. She gives them candy but the Hellions are determined to claim her unborn child. With the help of local Sheriff (Robert Patrick – Terminator II), she must protect herself and her baby from their predatory quest.
HELLIONS received its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival where it was acquired for distribution in North America by IFC. To announce its launch at Cannes, Jinga released a new trailer to tease us even more:
I’m really looking forward to this film. I’m a huge fan of Bruce McDonald’s films. In addition to this and PONTYPOOL, McDonald also directed HARD CORE LOGO and a ton of various TV shows. No word on a release date, but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear.
