This week, That Shelf writer Victor Stiff joins us to bring the apocalypse with HELLBOY, the much maligned reboot by Neil Marshall. Starring Stranger Things’ David Harbour and Milla Jovovich, HELLBOY finds himself torn the world of monsters and humanity as he attempts to prevent the ancient Blood Queen from unleashing… well… hell on earth. Rated a distasterous 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a tonne of detractors but is it really a sign of the End of Days? Or is there something redeemable in the half-demon? In a fun conversation, Victor and I attempt to discern what makes Hellboy a hero and what he’s looking for in the film.
