Written and directed by Zelda Addams, Toby Poser, and John Adams, Hellbender is coming to Shudder on February 24th—and the film has got one hell of a trailer.
Hellbender follows Izzy (Zelda Adams), a 16-year-old who leads an isolated life on a lonely mountaintop due to a rare sickness. Questioning her illness and starving for companionship, Izzy sneaks down the mountain where she befriends the brazen older girl Amber (Lulu Adams).
Just as Izzy finally begins to feel happiness, a drinking game involving a live worm unleashes a new kind of insatiable hunger within her. Confused and scared, Izzy appeals to her mother for answers, but the family’s secrets are as old and dark as the bloodline from which they’re born.
