What is Hellbound about?
Hellbound is a satire of religious authority. Hellbound is a supernatural horror series about alternate earth, where supernatural creatures walk the earth.
The creatures will suddenly appear out of nowhere and drag it’s victims to Hell, they would often pick up humans like a piece of chew toy and absolutely destroys them.
Humans, on the other hand, demand reasons, causes, and messages, as demonstrated by the movie lines.
Individuals or organizations claim to be God‘s messengers at this time, misrepresent and monopolize the cause and message of the abnormality, and gain power.
People who have never seen God are today conducting religious business in God‘s name all over the world, earning money and gaining power, managing the lives of countless people.
The show has gotten a 100% approval rate on Rotten Tomatoes (that’s very rare) and reviews said that the show was beyond expectation, while some said that it is too slow-paced.
