"Hey, you got your DREAM WARRIORS in my PRINCE OF DARKNESS!"
— Evan, LETTERBOXD
Decades ago, deranged Professor Jones (John Saxon) concocted a diabolical drug at a rural college called "The Nietzsche Experiment," designed to give its users telepathic abilities, but instead turned anyone who took it into violent lunatics. Twenty years later, Jones has returned to resume his experiments and avenge himself against those he feels wronged him and his work! Armed with a group of hideously deformed mutant slaves, it's not long before the tranquil college becomes host to vicious violence and carnage. Shot in Detroit at the decline of the direct-to-video era, HELLMASTER combines gothic horror and creature feature action with intensely colorful, Argento-inspired visuals, courtesy of acclaimed cinematographer Michael Goi (AMERICAN HORROR STORY). Newly restored in 4K from the 35mm original negative!
