Synopsis:  It’s spreading… After Contracted unleashed the world’s most horrifying virus, this sequel picks up the story as newly infected Riley (Matt Mercer) races against time to contain the outbreak, even as it ravages his own body. As he digs deeper into its origins, Riley attracts the attention of a Detective (Marianna Palka, Good Dick) who doubts his innocence, and BJ (Morgan Peter Brown, Absentia) himself, who holds the key to the virus – and perhaps the destruction of mankind as we know it, leading to a blood-soaked finale you have to see to believe. Hang on to your barf bags, buckle up, and get ready for the genre ride of the year.

 

In HELLIONS, a teenager’s Halloween night turns into a terrifying fight to survive when trick-or-treaters from Hell show up at her doorstep.

Screening as a ‘Canadian Premiere’ in the ‘Vanguard’ section of next month’s Toronto International Film Festival, HELLIONS will then open in theaters, digital and VOD September 18.
