Hellbound is Here to Take Your Soul

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Reviews

Finally, people are embracing Asian horror, and not just making remakes of films and series (Because they are inferior to the original). Back again to give us quality entertainment director Yeon Sang-Ho (Train to Busan, Peninsula) is sending us to literal hell this time. The new trailer for his latest series dropped and it looks like it's going to be an intense ride.

Netflix’s Squid Game was an enormous hit, and with anything that big, a trend is always the follow-up. Netflix is increasing its Korean selection for us English-speaking countries. Unless you change your VPN and set it in Korea, then you have had this huge selection already (I don’t do this to watch otherwise unavailable movies and TV shows and neither should you).

The new Hellbound trailer looks like it's going to be with not just socioeconomic ideology, but also religion as a whole. These religious groups in the trailer that immediately take to worshiping these hulking Death Angels and calling them “divine” are going to be interesting.

The synopsis for Hellbound goes like this:

Investigating the phenomenon of “proclamations” and ritualistic murders is police detective Jin Kyung-hoon (Yang Ik-june). Examining the mysterious sects are broadcast journalist Bae Young-jae (Park Jeong-min) and lawyer of the accused sinner's Min Hey-jin (Kim Hyun-joo). Together, these three investigators search for answers in this wildly original commentary on the growing anxieties of a nation.

Hellbound is based on a Korean webtoon called “Hell”. The six-part Hellbound series will land on Netflix to steal some souls beginning November 19.
