SYNOPSIS:

In the not too distant future, people struggle to survive their greatest enemy, the sun.

Before you make too many assumptions, Hell is a film about the future when the sun has increased the Earth’s temperature by 10 degrees Celsius.

Dark-Nature-2009-movie-4

SYNOPSIS:

A family holiday turns into a fight for survival in the inhospitable wilderness of remote Scotland.
