Netflix definitely put a lots of bucks into this project, from all of graphics editing, cinematic shots and also the story of the End times just as where we are living right now. In the midst of chaos, where prophets start arising and make a new movement. 

Eventhough this movie is fantastical and fiction, it’s amazing how this kdramas just felt so real. it evokes our emotions of helplessness, right in the face of death that we can’t avoid.

Hellbound is now streaming on Netflix worldwide.
