A short, sharp shock of downbeat but compelling apocalypse fiction.

Full Review… | August 28, 2012

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.

Audience Reviews for Hell

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.
