The development of Hellbender was a family affair
Hellbender had its world premiere at the 25th Fantasia International Film Festival in August 2021. This is the sixth film written and directed by the filmmaker Adams family, Toby Poser, John Adams, and their daughter Zelda Adams (The deeper you dig, Halfway to Zen, The Shooting). Zelda starred in the film with her mother and sister Lulu and took home the award for Best Actress at the Fantasia International Film Festival. The family also produced the music for the function with tracks from their experimental punk group H6LLB6ND6R.
“Well, we’ve been making movies together for 11 years now, and we’ve kind of figured out who’s good at what, but we’re really trying to do just about everything together. Whoever’s not, like, being filmed and getting on acting camera is the one behind it, controlling the camera and directing, ”Zelda said Film Cred.
“It was very fun to play Izzy and took into account the parental themes that were in the game,” she added. “Toby is NOT a strict mother, and I’m very grateful for that. In the movie, however, the mother tries to keep these things away from Izzy, which makes Izzy just want to do it even more, and she’s just going to trying to figure out how to do it on her own without getting good advice or talking about it You see that in real life all the time: strictly creating crooks, so it was really nice to cover that theme because it’s really different from how we live in real life. “
Speaking about joining the Shudder family, John Adams also said: “We all agree: one of the wonderful things about Shudder is, well, there are many different types of horrors and many different kinds of horror fans, and we really enjoy the community that Shudder built around it. It was a pretty big honor that Shudder bought our movie from us, because that’s exactly where we wanted it, so we’m super-duper excited, and they’s incredibly kind, because they treat us like we are, what is a family of three who really enjoy making movies together. They talk to us like that, and they treat us like that, and it’s a good relationship so far. ”
Hellbender will start streaming on Shudder on February 24, 2022.
