Luckily for you, there will be a lot of new flicks released during 2023, however, if you are up for something completely different, you might want to opt for watching what many people refer to as the very first Christian film that is all about bringing the Biblical interpretation of hell to life, an adaptation titled “Journey to Hell”.
But, this is one of those film topics that is not covered frequently in the entire industry, which is why you might be wondering – why should I see this film and what can I expect from it? Well, to put it simply, you should expect a lot from it, all of which will be explained in the article below. So, without wasting any more of your time, let’s take a closer look at this upcoming adaptation:
It is an Adaptation of a Well-Known book
Before taking a look at some facts revolving around the upcoming movie, you should first know that it is an adaptation of a famous and well-known book titled “Journey to Hell”. It comes from a popular author called John Bunyan, an individual that also brought us other amazing books including “The Pilgrim’s Progress”, “The Holy War”, as well as “The Fear of God”.
Now, you should know, although it’s an adaptation of this truly amazing book, the movie is different in some ways, especially since the producers and directors decided to change the ending of it, as well as some other details that you might come across, hence, besides actually watching the film, you might also want to read the book.
Why should you read the book? Well, besides discovering the entire story, it will also allow you to understand the characters in the scenes better, and when you think about what this drama is all about, trust me, you will certainly want to learn as much as you can in order to understand some of the decisions made by the characters.
The Plot Explained
In order for you to truly enjoy the film when it comes out, we will avoid adding some of the important details that you could easily refer to as spoilers. As we already mentioned, this movie is based on the best-selling publication coming from John Bunyan, and it’s a compelling story about a man who finds his faith.
The plot basically revolves around a man who literally goes to the scary underworld, and once he returns, he is a completely different man. In fact, he becomes completely religious by the end of the adaptation. It tells an interesting story of a man’s journey to hell and what he can choose to do in order to avoid that exact same fate.
The producers of this film decided to hire the famous and well-known director Tim Chey to work on the movie with them, a director who brought us some truly amazing faith-based films such as “Freedom” starring Cuba Gooding Jr, “The Islands” starring Mira Sorvino.
Besides the aforementioned movies, it’s worth mentioning another one, which is the most nerve-wracking movie I have ever watched “20 Seconds”, that tells an amazing story of what would happen if we only had 20 minutes left to live. I strongly recommend that you check it out as well.
In a recent interview, Chey stated that the plot revolves around an individual who has rejected Jesus Christ throughout his lifetime. In fact, the man did think that he was a Christian, however, it turns out that he wasn’t. The director also added that he decided to change the ending completely, mostly because he wanted to make it uplifting.
Without revealing too much info, you should know that the scenes are full of fun and interesting twists that will literally make you want more by the time the movie ends. And, when you think about the fact that you’ll get a glimpse of the underworld, it becomes even more interesting.
For instance, the man that is the center point of this film goes to hell where he doesn’t only rediscover his faith, but he also meets a wide range of characters that occupy the underworld, including the notorious dictator Hitler, The Zodiac Killer that brought dread into many people’s homes, as well as Nero.
An interesting fact is that this movie was released during a time where more than fifty percent of Christians don’t believe the Devil exists. In fact, this was proven in a recent study done by Barna. Additionally, it’s a movie that a lot of individuals claim has changed their views and opinions, hence, it’s definitely worth watching.
Now, keep in mind, the movie should be released in over 2.000 movie theaters during April, however, this cannot be confirmed 100% mostly because we don’t know what will happen due to the global pandemic. However, the director, Tim Chey, has noted that it will also be released on some streaming platforms.
Before we conclude this article, it’s worth noting that you should definitely see some of the other movies that Tim direct, all of which are faith-based, but more importantly, all of them could easily teach you some important life lessons, so, you should definitely see some of them.
If you are interested in watching a faith-based movie that is filled with interesting twists and scenes, you might want to opt for watching “Journey to Hell”, a new movie that is coming from the popular director Tim Chey. If you choose to watch it, it’ll definitely provide you with a way to spend some quality time with your family members.
