Plot: Becky (Laysla De Oliveira) and her brother Cal (Avery Whitted) just wanted to take a quick break on their roadtrip when they hear a young boy crying for help in the field next to the road: he lost his way in the tall grass and can’t get back to the road. Becky and Cal head into the field themselves – and find that they can’t get back either. There is something strange going on in the grass.
In the Tall Grass is very notably a King/Hill adaptation. If that’s your thing, you will be well satisfied, though not particularly surprised. It is typical stuff after all. If that’s not your thing, you probably don’t need to try to see whether you like it anyway.
Dora (Chloe Rose) is supposed to have a nice Halloween but when her doctor Henry (Rossif Sutherland) tells her that she is four weeks pregnant, Dora is unsurprisingly thrown. In a daze she prepares for a Halloween party with her boyfriend Jace (Luke Bilyk). But her night turns out even worse than expected when a group of strange trick-or-treating kids start terrorizing her in a very bloody way.
Hellions is a weird film, which is entertaining for a while but as it goes on, the lack of a coherent plot makes itself very much felt.
