Prepare to Busan (watch it HERE) director Yeon Sang-ho’s six episode Netflix sequence Hellbound shouldn’t be a part of the streaming service’s Netflix & Chills line-up and apparently gained’t be obtainable to look at on Netflix throughout the Halloween season – however some viewers are going to have the prospect to look at it quickly anyway. The sequence is about to make its world premiere on the Toronto Worldwide Movie Pageant, with screenings on September ninth, eleventh, and 14th. A digital premiere screening will observe on September sixteenth. Forward of those screenings, a trailer has arrived on-line and might be seen within the embed above.
Based mostly on the webtoon The Hell, which Yeon Sang-ho created with Choi Kyu-seok (the pair additionally wrote this sequence collectively), Hellbound takes place in
a world the place creatures by a supernatural phenomenon all of a sudden seem and start dragging folks on earth to hell.
In line with the TIFF page, Hellbound is about
a nation dealing with a brand new phenomenon of “sinners” actually condemned, and a spiritual sect on the rise, led by Jung Jin-soo (Yoo Ah-in). Investigating the phenomenon of “proclamations” and ritualistic murders is police detective Jin Kyung-hoon (Yang Ik-june). Inspecting the mysterious sect are broadcast journalist Bae Younger-jae (Park Jeong-min) and lawyer of the accused sinners Min Hey-jin (Kim Hyun-joo). Collectively, these three investigators seek for solutions on this wildly unique commentary on the rising anxieties of a nation.
The present sounds fascinating to me, and Prepare to Busan was adequate to ensure that I’ll try another style initiatives the director occurs to make… even when it takes me some time. (I nonetheless haven’t gotten round to watching Prepare to Busan Presents: Peninsula.)
Right here’s hoping that Netflix will announce a launch date for Hellbound quickly. We’ll share the news with you as quickly as they do.
