Did You Know?


The Latin phrase inscribed above the ominous iron gates "omens relinquite spes, o vos intrantes" is actually a misspelled quote from Dante's 'The Divine Comedy'. It should read " *omnes* relinquite spes, o vos intrantes". Which roughly translates as "All hope abandon, ye who enter here" See more »

It was watchable at least...
20 July 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Initially I had expected a little bit more from the 2015 movie "They Found Hell" from director Nick Lyon.

That being said, don't get me wrong, because "They Found Hell" is not a bad movie, it was actually entertaining enough for what it turned out to be. However, the other side of the movie turned out that the movie was exceptionally generic and predictable.

The storyline in the movie, while it wasn't particularly innovative, was actually fair enough. Sure, it was predictable and generic, but it was also interesting enough in an odd way. Now, you will not see anything in "They Found Hell" that will revolutionize the horror genre, far from it.

Now, the interpretations of Hell was a little bit weird for me. But I guess individually we all have definitions of what Hell would be like. While it was interesting to see some of the interpretations of Hell in the movie, there were other aspects that just didn't really make much sense, was too comical, and also was just downright boring. So there is a lot of diversity here at least.

The acting in "They Found Hell" was actually good, taking into consideration the nature of the movie and the budget of the movie. Sure, it is not Shakespearian performances here, granted, but they get the job done.

As for the special effects. Well, this was a mixed bag of nuts essentially. Some of the special effects - both practical and CGI - were good, while others looked like something taken out of a 1990s computer game. So this movie comes with both ends of the scale.

All in all, "They Found Hell" turned out to be a generic foray into the horror genre for a seasoned horror veteran such as myself.
