‘Bingo Hell’ (2021), A Blumhouse Horror Comedy



Bingo Hell is a movie directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero starring young upstarts called Adriana Barraza, Richard Brake, L. Scott Caldwell and Bertila Damas among other promising cast members.

The screenplay was written together by Shane McKenzie, Gigi Saul Guerrero and Perry Blackshear. And, apparently, they had a blast writing this.


Some seniors live a peaceful life caring for their community and spending hours playing bingo until things change: a new owner, with greater and more infernal prizes has arrived at the district to change the way this entertainment is experienced from now on.

About the Movie

I was recommended this film as one of the worst films to write about and I will disagree: Bingo Hell is infernal entertainment, and very well made visually (at least the choices they have made). It is tacky, kitsch or whatever you want to call it, it has a neon light tone that can offend many, vaudeville acting and a stupid screenplay about some seniors doing silly things… well, this film is not stupid at all, it has very good staging, good close-up scenes and deep down, it knows how to laugh at itself in this sort of Wonderful Tales, lasting an hour and a half (with a lot more blood in it than the Spielberg series).

It has good lines (not Earth shaking), knows how to use what it´s got, and for the modest resources used, it has a good result.

This is a movie to enjoy in a relaxed way, forget advanced physics studies you may have studied and let yourself be led by these friendly old folks doing silly things in this movie, which is stupid but they know what they are up to and how to make us laugh.

And, I will tell this person who recommended this film and who was tortured by watching it and now will subtitle it into French: Did Bingo Hell stay in your mind? Admit it did, this is also valuable.

Our Opinion

Okay, it isn´t a five star movie, but in its modest way, it is okay, so we will give it two juicy and never well valued stars in Martin Cid Magazine.

Enjoy this film.
