Critics Aren't Too Wild About 'Hell Baby'

Tom Lennon and Ben Garant's latest comedy, Hell Baby, has been available on VOD since July, but it hits select theaters today, and the reviews are mixed-to-meh. The film, which stars Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb as an expectant couple who move into a haunted house and end up with a demonic baby, earned a 35% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 40/100 on Metacritic. Despite praise for co-stars Keegan-Michael Key and Riki Lindhome, most critics weren't sold on the horror-comedy spoof, which Lennon and Garant wrote, directed, and acted in.

Tom Lennon and Ben Garant's 'Hell Baby' Gets a VOD Premiere and Short Theatrical Run

Hell Baby, a horror comedy written and directed by Reno 911! and The State's Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, is coming your way this fall. Millenium Entertainment just bought up rights to the film, which premiered at Sundance yesterday, and they're debuting it on all VOD platforms this fall followed by a token theatrical release. Hell Baby follows an expectant couple (Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb) who move into a haunted house in New Orleans, only to have to call out the Vatican's exorcist team to save them from their new home's demonic curse. A whole slew of lovely comedy people (Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Michael Ian [...]

Rob Corddry Is Having Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant's Hell Baby

Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are stepping out of the screenwriting circle and into the directing triangle with horror comedy Hell Baby, starring Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb as a young couple who have a…hell baby. Lennon and Garant will also star as "the Vatican's elite exorcism team" called in to defeat the demon seed.

Corddry and Lennon are always funny onscreen, but you have to admit that Lennon and Garant's screenwriting record (Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum 2, The Pacifier) may be focused more on making money than producing amazing movies. But maybe as directors, the pair will have more direct [...]

The Set of Hell Baby Seems Like the Best Set

Look at those guys – so great, so pretend serious ("Why so serious?" – Joker, R.I.P.). Paul Scheer posted this picture from the New Orleans set of Hell Baby, the Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant written and directed horror comedy. Lennon and Garant play priests called upon to exorcise Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb's haunted house. Scheer and Huebel probably play cops or strippers or costume salesmen. The cast also includes Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel & Oates) and Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and generally seems like the best. If you're in New Orleans, please go hang out with them and report back. Scheer recounted on his [...]
