    Its modest (if occasionally gross-out) stabs at genre parody rarely insult our intelligence and even allow for the kind of retro deadpan silliness Mel Brooks used to underline his louder punch lines.

    It’s modest, scrappy, and resourceful, a low-budget comedy that makes the most of a central setting and a cast packed with gifted improvisers.

    The movie is delightfully crude in places (including an instance of relay puking) and just plain silly-clever in others.

    Given Garant and Lennon’s background on “The State” and “Reno 911,” their scattershot approach as filmmakers isn’t especially surprising; for every oddly specific Shakespeare reference or detour to the local po-boy joint, there’s an ongoing parade of puke and an awful rubber suit with which to contend.

    Like bad houseguests, the creators of Hell Baby overstay their welcome.

    Hell Baby is what happens when you try to parody a parody. The result is a film that's less than half as funny as its predecessor, and a sliver as clever as the original.

    Tedious and tasteless in equal measure, the lazy horror parody Hell Baby gives grossout comedy a bad name.

    This movie really made me laugh. Being an avid horror movie fan and not having seen a decent horror comedy in a very very long time. I couldn't stop laughing at the poke they made at cheap scare tactics employed in 'ordinary' horrors these days, I feel exactly the same way. A serious thanks to the folks for making this movie, it made my day.

    It shoots from the hip from beginning to end and those easily offended will rate this as a negative, there's no hiding from that. Its about time someone got it right and these guys are awesome. Much much enjoyed!

    This film is a step better than Scary Movie V. There is just not enough laughs in Hell Baby to make it a good comedy. I like some of the actors involved in this, but unfortunately this is not a good film. D Expand
