Join Us For a Rue Morgue CineMacabre Watch Party of “HELLBENDER” on its Shudder Premiere, With Live Filmmaker Q&A!

Tuesday, February 8, 2022 | Events

Conceived and filmed under quarantine by a multi-talented family of creatives, HELLBENDER hits Shudder on Feb 24th and RUE MORGUE invites you to watch it along with us!

16-year-old Izzy (Zelda Adams) leads an isolated life on a lonely mountaintop. All she’s learned is from her protective mom (Toby Poser) and the wilderness that swallows them. Izzy dreams of a live gig, but her mother thinks she’s too sick and mustn’t be around others. Questioning her illness and starved for companionship, Izzy sneaks down the mountain where she befriends brazen Amber (Lulu Adams). Izzy is in heaven until a cruel drinking game with a live worm unleashes a new kind of hunger…


Join Exec Editor Andrea Subissati for a night of indie punk rock wickedness, featuring trivia and live chat with the Rue Crew, and a post-screening Q&A with the film’s writers/directors/stars: Toby Poser, Zelda Adams, Lulu Adams, and John Adams.
