Netflix has a secret weapon with the surprises it produces anywhere in the world and that suddenly become great phenomena. The recent ‘The Squid Game‘, an addictive South Korean series, became an international sensation in one weekend, lasting several weeks at number one. This has created an unusual expectation for the new releases created in the peninsula of the platform and the first to arrive has been ‘Heading to hell‘by director Yeon Sang-ho.
The creator of the stupendous’Train to Busan‘and its underrated sequels brings a very different proposition to’ The Squid Game ‘, an adaptation of a well-known webtoon whose greatest virtue is that its duration does not exceed six episodes, making the survival with killer games and singing dolls it seems’The Sopranos‘by his side. The first episode begins in the center of Seoul, where a man assaulted by three Hulk-like demons who chase him through traffic to pieces, splattering blood, beating him horribly until they “abduct” his soul and leave a scorched corpse.
