Some of the most common questions people ask about Hellbound?
Q. Where can I watch “Hellbound?”
A. Hellbound? will be released worldwide on DVD and Video-on-Demand May 28, 2013. In the meantime, we are continuing to screen in select cities across North America. See our screenings page for more details. If you would like to host a screening at your school or church, please contact us for pricing details.
Q. Why did you make this film?
A. You could boil it down to “preparation meets opportunity.” Writer/director/producer Kevin Miller had been pondering a documentary about hell as far back as 2006, but it wasn’t until early 2011 that the pieces finally started to come together. Then Rob Bell released his book Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived, and hell exploded across the infosphere, confirming that the time was right for this conversation. Our goal is to bring together a variety of voices to provoke informed discussion about hell and to help viewers explore the sources and the implications of their views.
Q. What’s your position on hell?
A. That’s the million dollar question, and it’s one we adamantly refuse to answer. First of all, there are a number of people behind this film, and we don’t all agree on this topic either, so there’s really no way to provide a comprehensive answer. Second, apart from mere curiosity, what often motivates a question like this is a desire to figure out which category we fall into: “us” or “them.” Rather than give you the luxury of slapping a label on us, we encourage you to watch the film and then engage us in a discussion based on what you see.
Q. Is this film just for Christians?
A. No way! The way we see it, everyone is going to die, so we all have a vested interest in what happens after that (if anything). Christian or not, we’ve all heard the “hell story.” The question is, is it true? And if so, which version of it? After all, Christians aren’t the only ones to come up with the idea of postmortem rewards/punishment. And in his or her darkest hour, even the most devout atheist will likely admit to worrying at least a little bit about what awaits us beyond the grave/crematorium. So even if you think the concept of hell is nothing more than a psychological projection of our desire for justice, we encourage people from every kind of faith and non-faith tradition to watch this film.
