Sneak Peek At HELLBENDER With This Scene Clip

As if puberty weren’t enough, imagine discovering at such a formative age that you’re also a witch, such is the case for Izzy (Zelda Adams), in the Monster Fest 2021 Official Selection HELLBENDER, the latest work from the auteur family of filmmakers John Adams, Zelda Adams & Toby Poser.

Headed to SHUDDER from February 24, here’s a sneak peek at the film with this Exclusive Scene Clip

16-year-old Izzy leads an isolated life on a lonely mountaintop. All she’s learned is from her protective mom and the wilderness that swallows them. It’s a gentle, quiet existence — except for when Izzy and Mom bang out loud songs for their band, H6LLB6ND6R. Izzy dreams of a live gig, but her mother thinks she’s too sick and mustn’t be around others. Questioning her illness and starved for companionship, Izzy sneaks down the mountain where she befriends brazen Amber. Izzy is in heaven until a cruel drinking game with a live worm unleashes a new kind of hunger.

HELLBENDER is the sixth feature film written and directed by the filmmaking Adams family, Toby Poser, John Adams, and their daughter Zelda Adams. Poser and Zelda Adams star in the film, along with Zelda’s sister Lulu Adams.

HELLBENDER will stream on SHUDDER from February 24
