A short, sharp shock of downbeat but compelling apocalypse fiction.
High-concept Hell leans toward stranger-danger slasher horror and amounts to little more than sinister mountain-men hell-bent on killing along the lines of a Wrong Turn movie by way of House of 1000 Corpses.
Decent German post-apocalyptic thriller that set in a world where temperatures have risen and even middle Europe has dried out. As a small group of survivors try to make their way to the supposedly wetter mountains they have to deal with hostile locals. The atmosphere, cinematography and acting is great, but the really convincing first half doesn't entirely go anywhere. There are moments of real tension and even horror, but once it ends you feel they could have done even more with the premise. Still, worth checking out.
Hell is a story about a post apocalyptic world, where the sun has became the worst enemy of mankind, making earth uninhabitable with it's intense flare. Survivors attempt to find a rumored place where there is water, but before they can reach it, real survival has just began. The film was interesting, it had an inventive premise, the first half of the film looked extremely realistic, not just with the atmosphere and set, but with the human interactions. But then it soon fell into the pitfall of cliche horror film, much like frontiers.
An interesting concept with a successful first half that sadly falls back on staples of too many horror films; escapes from captors, chases in woods, and rites-of-passage. The film remains visually interesting and is well enough acted to make it worth a watch.
This film is decent. It does a good job at creating a post-apocalyptic world where people must do whatever they must to survive. But, unfortunately, story-wise, the film isn't much at all. It's a predictable post-apocalyptic film. Our main characters must fight off bad guys. You know, world goes to shit so people start turning against each other and somehow try to justify it by saying it's the only way to "survive". This is really a film I've seen too many times at this point and this one doesn't really do much to set itself apart. Sure it gets the look right, but that's not enough. I think it would be hard to fuck up the look of a post-apocalyptic world. It's not a bad film, it's just very, very average. Not much of note happens until the last 15 minutes or so where things start to pick up but by then it's simply too late for the film to be salvaged. It's a fairly competent film, so technically the film is fine but not extraordinary either. So yea, not a very good film but not a bad one either. It's just average and a movie I've seen before and will, most likely, see again.
