October 31, 2013 TORONTO - HELLIONS - CAMERAS GET ROLLING ON BRUCE MCDONALD’S HALLOWEEN HORROR

October 31, 2013 TORONTO – Maverick indie director Bruce McDonald (Hard
Core Logo, Pontypool) started principal photography this week on the Halloween
horror thriller >HELLIONS. Whizbang Films and Storyteller Pictures are producing
from an original screenplay by Pascal Trottier (The Colony). The story follows a
pregnant teen, played by Chloe Rose (Degrassi: The Next Generation), who
must survive a Halloween night from Hell when three malevolent trick-or-treaters
come knocking.

 

The producers, Frank Siracusa (Hobo with a Shotgun) and Paul Lenart,
promise that “HELLIONS will deliver a perfect balance of scares, fun, and blood.”
“Chloe Rose’s Dora is a drop dead gorgeous warrior princess who is going to
blow people away— and not just because she’s packing a shotgun.”

 

“We’re also thrilled to have Bruce back making horror,” add the producers, “his
Pontypool was one of the most original horror movies we’ve ever seen. Imagine
what he’ll be able to do with a band of hellish trick-or-treaters.”

 

The film is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada.

 

Bruce McDonald’s latest effort, The Husband, premiered at this year’s Toronto
International Film Festival. More casting news to follow in the coming weeks…

 

Next Halloween, Hell Comes Knocking.
