Bruce McDonald and Chloe Rose on Hellions

Hellions could have been your basic home-invasion movie, with newly pregnant teen Dora (Chloe Rose) fighting off the weird strangers who want to take her baby on Halloween night. But the strangers are child-size, and their arrival triggers a reality shift that sends Dora into a bizarre, surrealistic landscape. I sat down with McDonald and his star in advance of the movie’s TIFF premiere.
