A fiery word of caution

The Burning Hell brings to film the Bible’s views on Hell, according to fearsome Reverend Estus Pirkle’s very personal interpretation. Through the horrific post-mortem fate of Ken, a biker of little faith who ends up decapitated in an accident, Pirkle plays out his relentless indictment to ensure that Tim, a friend of the deceased, will not make the same mistake as his comrade.
With a ridiculously low budget, his own son cast as Tim, and extras picked directly from the religious community, Ron Ormond wraps up yet another outrageously shocking film that traumatised a whole generation.
