Hell Baby


SYNOPSIS

HELL BABY, a comedy scripted by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at The Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) marks their co-directing debut. Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) are an expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans -- a house with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for Jack and Vanessa, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F'Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa's friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa's Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer). Only the Vatican's elite exorcism team (Garant and Lennon) san save them -- or can they?

Hell Baby -- the funniest horror movie you will ever see.


REVIEWS

  • Villagevoice.com: The movie is delightfully crude in places (including an instance of relay puking) and just plain silly-clever in others.
  • LATimes.com: The brain child of 'Reno 911!'s' Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, this horror spoof features amusingly offbeat characters and a bit of Mel Brooks-like deadpan silliness.
  • 1nfluxmagazine.com: Lennon and Garant have crafted a horror comedy that is often quite funny. There are definitely a few supporting performances that truly raise the comedy level.
  • Blu-ray.com: Bringing pleasant energy to the movie are Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel as two dim-witted cops one step behind everyone else, while Lennon and Garant slap on Chef Boyardee accents to play Vatican G-men, hamming it up in their own special way. 'Hell Baby' is certainly funny, especially when it goes absolutely berserk in the finale, paying off the birthing event with amusing creature-feature special effects and geysers of blood.
  • Dreadcentral.com: In between the big move and the grotesque finale are a ton of laughs. A welcome addition to the horror comedy sub-genre.
  • Slantmagazine.com: these guys display a freewheelin' sense of invention that should be watched closely, because they have the raw stuff of major comic filmmakers.
  • Slugmag.com: a wickedly funny horror-comedy that explores horror film conventions in such an over-the-top and self-aware way that I'll never be able to take a haunted house, exorcism or demonic baby films seriously again. I haven't laughed this hard since Bridesmaids.
  • RogerEbert.com: The cast excels at slapstick humor.
