Nearby is a smashed pharmaceutical cabinet... The signs are grim and imply something nefarious - and these are the only facts Darlan has to go on.

Holy Hell, Directed by Ryan LaPlante

Canada | 2015 | 90 mins | ARKANSAS PREMIERE

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. Having been described as "DEATH WISH meets THE TOXIC AVENGER, by way of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN" (, HOLY HELL is a modern take on classic Action, Horror 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.
