Style over substance--if ever challenged to summarize the film Hellions in just three words, reply "style over substance". Honestly, I could close the review right here, and you would likely have a pretty good idea about this movie, but I will go a bit more in depth...though with such little depth to the film to begin with, this may prove to be a challenge. Teen Dora (not the explorer, but actress Chloe Rose) finds out she is pregnant. It happens to be Halloween as well, and as she is handing out candy, a group of children in scary costumes begin terrorizing her.
Dora hallucinates, then the colors all around her begin to change (insert the style portion of my opening sentence), and we're not really sure what we are seeing is really happening...I'm not sure we really care either. Dora's pregnancy also seems to be accelerating, and she's not quite understanding that either. Thankfully, the movie's Ahab, Sheriff Corman (Robert Patrick of Terminator 2 and Fire in the Sky fame), comes along near the end to explain it all--by this time, you have given up on the story itself (good thing too, as his explanation is a very familiar story) and are just watching for visual satisfaction.
