Holy Hell is the over-the-top, outrageous, sexually-deviant, blood-drenched story of Father Augustus Bane: a priest pushed too far who begins praying to a revolver and hunting down the gangsters who killed his parishioners. In the vein of recent alternative horror/comedies like "Machete" and "Hobo with a Shotgun", HOLY HELL is a modern take on 60's and 70's B-Movie and Exploitation film tropes. The goal of this feature length movie is to break through every limit set by film, taste and reasonable societal behavior: all with anarchic glee. Written by Ryan LaPlante

Crazy Credits

Many of the actors involved in the project did not want their real names used due to the subject material, so they chose parody names such as "Lindsay Lohands" and "Paris Hiltom" as their stage names. See more »

"forgiveness for some.. bullets for the rest!"
25 January 2020 | by KrhhmgSee all my reviews

It doesn't happen too often that i agree with the obviously fake, overenthusiastic reviews of cast, family members or whoever. this time i must admit that, even if i don't share the euphoria their authors must have experienced, "holy hell" was better than expected, and more entertaining than most other low budget production. the lighting is a bit odd at times, acting and effects straightup laughable but the plot is grim and there's enough violence to keep you tuned. unlike other cheap flicks, it doesn't try to be something it can't be. the fact that it is obviously a "hobo with a shotgun" - ripoff is bearable.
