Hell Baby is a 2013 American comedy horror film written and directed by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon.

The movie stars Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, Riki Lindhome, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel. Writer-directors Garant and Lennon also co-star as a pair of priests.



An expectant couple moves into a haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans. There, they encounter a neighbour named F’Resnal who tells them about the bloody history of their house. Vanessa (Ms Bibb) and her husband, Jack (Rob Corddry), exhibiting a certain carelessness in their house hunting, buy a foreboding wreck of a place in New Orleans that the local residents have given demonic nicknames like “House of Blood”.

Vanessa is already extremely pregnant when they move in, and soon she is talking like the kid in “The Exorcist.” The Vatican sends some ghostbusters (Mr Lennon and Mr Garant)…



“It’s loose and silly and often hilariously funny; the jokes that hit hard make up for the ones that don’t quite connect. It could be argued that Hell Baby is nothing more than a sketch dragged out to feature-length, but I’d say that’s unfair. It’s probably three or four sketches dragged out to feature-length, and it totally works.” Badass Digest


“Tedious and tasteless in equal measure, the lazy horror parody Hell Baby gives gross out comedy a bad name. The latest collaboration from Reno 911! creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant will play only to the duo’s most faithful fans, providing anyone can tolerate a pileup of poorly improvised scenes and repetitive gags demonstrating zero flair for either satire or straightforward comedy.
