The submission phase of the Hellions Video Contest came to a close on Saturday, March 1, and now the voting phase begins!
New entries will be posted on Monday mornings, for the next four weeks, on the Hellions website. Each week visitors will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite entry and a Weekly Audience Favorite will be elected to advance to the Final Round.
The Final Round will be juried by HELLIONS director Bruce McDonald, director and Rue Morgue publisher Rodrigo Gudiño, and Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener.
The winning entry will be shown within the context of the Halloween-themed feature film HELLIONS and the director will be invited to the premiere.
The short will appear on a television in a scene of HELLIONS, with the potential to also screen theatrically, in its entirety, along with the feature film; and to be included as a special feature on the DVD/Blu-ray release of HELLIONS.

Helmed by maverick indie director Bruce McDonald, HELLIONS stars newcomer Chloe Rose (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”), as a teenager who must survive a Halloween night from hell when three malevolent trick-or-treaters come knocking at her door.
Also starring in the horror-thriller are Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, “True Blood”, “The X-Files”) in the role of a tough-as-nails cop Mike Corman; Rossif Sutherland (“Reign”, “Crossing Lines”, “ER”); Rachel Wilson (“Republic of Doyle”, “The Kennedy’s”); Peter Dacunha (Haunter, “Reign”) and Luke Bilyk (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”).
HELLIONS is penned by Pascal Trottier (The Colony) and produced by Frank Siracusa (Hobo with a Shotgun) of Whizbang Films and Paul Lenart of Storyteller Pictures. The film is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada, and in association with Bell Media’s The Movie Network and Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central.
