When you carry out the devil's work, be prepared to face judgment in the afterlife; that's exactly what happens to a series of sinners in maverick director Teruo Ishii's controversial updating of the gruesome Japanese horror classic Jigoku. From the members of the Aum Shinrikyo Cult who used sarin gas to terrorize and kill Japanese subway riders to an angst-ridden woman who is carried off to Hell after a terrifying encounter in a neighborhood park, no one is safe from the everlasting torments of the underworld. Judged guilty and sentenced to a life of pain and torture by Lucifer himself, those who brought pain to others while living in the mortal world will forever feel the searing fires of Hell coursing through every pore of their being until beyond the end of time -- and you will be there to experience every unforgettably agonizing moment in horrifying detail.
