Hail to Hell

Lim Oh-jeong, South Korea

지옥만세, 2022, 109 min, K16

Are teenage years really the best times of your life?

Tormented by their classmates, Nami and Sunwoo decide to end their lives instead of going on a school trip together. When this fails, the girls’ plans change into a revenge mission to Seoul, where their tormentor Chaerin has moved to live a luxurious life (at least according to Instagram). But is everything we see on social media true, and how can one find liberation from past mistakes?

This pitch-black South Korean comedy delves into painful themes without judgment. Despite the dark themes, Lim’s direction infuses the film with absurd humor, girl power, and hope for the future.
