The latest from DIY filmmaking heroes the Adamses, Hellbender stars real-life mother and daughter Toby Poser and Zelda Adams as powerful nature witches whose peaceful, secluded life is threatened when teenage Izzy (Adams) discovers her natural gift for spellcraft—and violence. Blending hallucinatory imagery, feral bloodlust, and a pretty badass family rock band, Hellbender is one of the more unique takes on both folk horror and coming-of-age stories we’ve seen in a while. Paired with a new 4k restoration of the seminal folk-horror classic Eyes Of Fire, this is a double feature that crackles with magic and menace like the flames of a Samhain bonfire.
