“Fight your demons. Save your soul.”
Who wouldn’t want to watch a film with this tagline? What? You still need more convincing. Okay, I guess I should continue writing a full review then. Read on:
Katrina [Sarah T. Cohen] is a washed-up MMA fighter who must come back to the ring and fight in a tournament to save her son’s life. But the tournament is in hell, and she will have to fight her way past man, beasts and the demons that haunt her from within.
I just have to gush for a moment and say that I liked every single thing about this film. There are many times when there is a clever concept for a film but it falls short in its execution. This is not one of those times. While the idea of fighting in a sort of demonic or evil tournament may sound familiar to some, this is not problematic. Hellkat takes the somewhat familiar idea and makes it its own.
The characters were interesting; I wanted to learn more about their backstory and was hoping they would win their battles (no spoilers so I won’t tell you if this was the case or not). The fight scenes were excellently done. I don’t know enough about martial arts to talk about these in a technical manner, but as a gamer and movie lover, I can say that they did not look fake and were fun to watch.
If you like your horror movies with a lot of action and a twist of supernatural, you have got to see this film! Hellkat is available now on DVD and On-Demand.
