HELL BABY, the new rude, crude and ugly comic horror flick from Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, tries for all of this, but except for a few good laughs, often of the second-hand variety, manages to mostly waste our 98 minutes -- which is, in any case, far too long a running time for this kind of movie.
