Synposis:

“In 1999, outside the sleepy town of Hellmington, troubled high school senior Katie Owens mysteriously vanished.

Nine years later, Detective Samantha Woodhouse, a former classmate of Katie’s, returns to Hellmington for the first time since graduation to deal with the unexpected death of her father. His passing just another tragedy in an already devastating year for Sam: her own daughter was murdered, resulting in a downward spiral of anguish and guilt that has slowly destroyed her marriage and career.

Sam soon discovers that her father’s demise is one in a series of suspicious deaths over the last several years, and it appears that the grisly fatalities are becoming more frequent. Even more alarming, every victim circles back to the troubled Katie Owens.

Battling hallucinations, insomnia and her own personal demons, Sam struggles to uncover the disturbing truth of what really happened to Katie Owens; a mystery that will lead her to a secretive, centuries-old cult of revenge.” – October Coast PR

For our next edition of the Sunday Bloody Sunday Matinee, we are showcasing an absolutely brilliant film that may not entirely be a horror per say, but it is definitely terrifying as shit! With elements of suspense embodied into a detective based crime mystery, Hellmington is a brilliant showcase of the emotional responses that can happen when you begin to think that things couldn’t get worse, yet the most certainly do. I always feel a great bit of joy whilst watching a film and just KNOWING that some shit just isn’t adding up. And yes, sometimes I appreciate when I figure out the ending pretty early on in the viewing. But, I am also pleasantly surprised when things fall completely into disarray and one’s guess is as good as another as to what the hell is going to happen. And the latter is exactly what you will get with a viewing of this fantastic film!

 

 

And hot damn what a great cast Hellmington has for you all! Nicole Correia-DaMude gives a performance of a lifetime in the lead role, and Michael Ironside is, well, he’s Michael god damned Ironside, that’s who he is. Of course he’s fantastic. Correia-DaMude though, seriously! I was very aware of her work on Shadowhunters, but this right here is some next level work that is extremely compelling in so many ways. I would dare put her performance up to any that I saw throughout 2019 as some very stiff competition. She was just that great. The film in itself is just so wonderful, and if you are looking for a truly suspenseful experience, I can not recommend Hellmington enough.

 

Hellmington is available now on DVD and VOD wherever you watch great films.
