All Hell is Breaking Loose

An innovative film adaptation of Dante's Inferno uses paper cut-outs and live action puppetry to tell the tale of one man's descent into the bowels of hell...on earth. Dermot Mulroney and James Cromwell provide the voices for the sojourner, Dante, and his mullet-sporting guide, Virgil. Unlike the standard levels of hell recounted in Dante Alighieri's epic work, the film leads Dante on a path that showcases other horrors: the Department of Homeland Security, sewage filled rivers, Satanic car dealerships and grisley gated communities. Punishment for the condemned includes having to dance to techno music for all of eternity. (Isn't that enough to convert anyone?) View the trailer here. -- Amy
