JT Petty's demonic black comedy will possess Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D in February.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate has revealed 'Hellbenders - 3D' for Blu-ray on February 18.
There are demons so terrible that no mortal man of God could successfully drive them back to Hell. The only option is for the exorcist himself to invite possession and then commit suicide, dragging along the demon to damnation - so the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints - or Hellbenders - was formed. A group of elite, highly-trained exorcists, they live in a constant state of debauchery so they will be ready to go to Hell at any moment. When an infernal Norse demon called BLACK SURTR escapes into New York City intent on cracking open the gates of Hell, the Hellbenders must use every ounce of their debauchery to battle the demon and save the planet from eternal damnation!
The Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Digital Copy will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary with writer/director JT Petty; "God's Dirty Work - The Making of Hellbenders" featurette; and "Fly on the Wall" behind-the-scenes featurette.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
