Millennium Entertainment has released a trailer for the horror parody Hell Baby. The film follows a husband (Rob Corddry) and his pregnant wife (Leslie Bibb) who move into a haunted house in a crappy New Orleans neighborhood, and then need the help of a couple Italian exorcists (writer-directors Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant) when the wife becomes possessed. I caught the film at Sundance, and there’s a solid 30 minutes of hilarious material, which wouldn’t be so bad if the film wasn’t 90 minutes long. That hit-to-miss ratio is pretty well demonstrated in this trailer, which mostly features Lennon and Garant doing their silly Italian accents.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Riki Lindhome, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Keegan Michael Key, Kumail Nanjiani, and Michael Ian Black. Hell Baby will be available on iTunes on July 25th, and hits theaters on September 6th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hell Baby:
“Hell Baby,” a comedy scripted by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at The Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) marks their co-directing debut. Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) are an expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans — a house with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for Jack and Vanessa, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F’Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa’s friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa’s Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer). Only the Vatican’s elite exorcism team (Garant and Lennon) san save them — or can they?
