The plot of Hellions is very similar to that of an earlier short story "Buckets" by F. Paul Wilson. In the story, an abortion doctor is visited and tormented by trick-or-treaters who are revealed to be the spirits of fetuses he has aborted throughout his career. See more »

This movie popped up in an email from Netflix as "something you may enjoy". Netflix, you couldn't have been more wrong.
To be honest, I'm still not sure what the hell I just watched. I thought it started out decent. It felt like I was watching The Strangers, but with children; home invasion and children, two very creepy things in my opinion. The movie quickly turned into "demons from hell" type movie, which I could get on board, if it weren't for the quick turn it made into that direction.
Some people say it's a pro-life propaganda movie, which I could kind of see, but that also may be reaching a little bit.
I thought the acting was good in some spots; I thought the music was definitely creepy (Christmas sounding music with a child like tone); and I thought some of the visual effects and costumes were cool.
What I didn't like were the lingering effects in scenes that looked choppy (the constant shot of her in the hanging sheets). I thought some of the dialogue was extremely lame. And, because the movie kind of goes by so quick, it's really hard to pin down what is actually happening. I felt like the film maker had a bunch of different good ideas in his head, and instead of picking one and running with it, he crammed everything into one movie.
Overall I think the movie could have been so much better. There are definitely good elements there, they just need to be justly presented.
