Hellbent, produced by Joseph Wolf, who previously brought horror fans such classics as Hell Night, Halloween II, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, is being billed as both "the first ever gay horror-slasher flick", and a "terrifying" new feature. Really, though, this first writing and helming effort by Paul Etheredge-Ouzts is much more than a "gay" film - and perhaps not quite as terrifying as the film's PR team might like you to believe.

The film follows the adventures of a quartet of gay guys on the night of the wild and crazy West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. The boys are just trying to have a little fun, score a little sex, perhaps, and avoid being decapitated like the two guys in the park the night before, who were just having a little steamy fun in a parked car before a psycho-killer relieved them of their heads.
