The new South Korean horror film Hellbound premiered on Netflix on November 20. A day later, according to FlixPatrol analytics, the series became the most popular on the channel, according to The Guardian. An estimated 142 million households in 94 countries have viewed it.
The series tells about demonic hairy giants tracking down sinners, who were informed in advance about their death hour. Hairy brutally and very naturalistically kill their victims and send them to hell, because of which a wave of hysteria and religious fanaticism rises in society.
The pilot of the show premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was directed by cartoonist, screenwriter and filmmaker Yeon Sang Ho, famous for the cartoon "The King of Pigs" and the feature film "Train to Busan".
