Indie producers Whizbang 
Films 
and 
Storyteller 
Pictures 
have started the cameras rolling on Bruce McDonald’s Halloween 
horror 
thriller 
Hellions.

The latest genre picture from the Pontypool director stars Chloe Rose as a pregnant teen who must survive a Halloween night from hell when three trick-or-treaters come knocking at her door.

No word on the budget for Hellions, which includes Telefilm Canada financing.

The ensemble cast includes Rookie Blue‘s Rachel Wilson as the teen’s mother, Luke Bilyk as her boyfriend and Rossif Sutherland in the role of a doctor.

Hellions was penned 
 by 
 Pascal 
 Trottier 
(The Colony) and is produced by
 Frank 
Siracusa
 and Paul 
Lenart.

“It is thrilling to be underway on this project and very auspicious that we are getting started Halloween week,” Siracusa said in a statement on Friday.

Norayr Kasper is the director of photography on Hellions, Andrew Berry is the production designer, Sarah Millman is the costume designer and Duff Smith (The Husband, You Are Here) will edit the film.
