I’ve always been a bit of a moderate on Tom Lennon and Ben Garant: never a fan of The State, but charmed by Balls of Fury and the Reno: 911 movie. For their new horror spoof, they’ve assembled a killer ensemble that includes Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key (but no Peele?), Paul Scheer, Kumail Nanjiani and Riki Lindhome.
It may help this movie’s chances that a more serious take on this kind of material, Delivery, is coming out this year also. I caught it at LAFF – a found-footage film that documents a pregnancy going disturbingly, supernaturally wrong on reality TV. A mixed bag that appears to be saving some reveals for sequels the filmmakers apparently think are inevitable, it nonetheless has at least one killer moment you’ll never forget…or expect.
In the meantime, Hell Baby trailer after the jump. Looks better than most horror spoofs.
