Holy Hell is a revenge exploitation film, which heavy takes its cues from Troma films and neo-grindhouse flicks like Hobo with a Shotgun. The story focuses on Father Augustus Bane, played by the film's writer/director Ryan LaPlante, whose aversion to killing prevents him from stopping a massacre. This causes something to snap in Bane's head and he acquires a golden gun that he dubs "The Lord" and proceeds to take bloody revenge against all sinners.
Holy Hell is a film that is most definitely going to offend people. From its overall mockery of religion to the transexual villain Sissy, there is plenty of content in this film that is designed to push buttons, with me arguing that the film perhaps goes a little too far at times. Holy Hell is a film about cheesy one-liners, crude content and over-the-top gore and frankly not much else. This is a film that will find its audience, but it's not really one that I can fully recommend.
