|Title||:||Hell Is Empty|
In Hell Is Empty, a self-styled messiah initiates a lost soul into his cult of sister-wives on an Edenic island, upsetting the delicate balance of a utopian community fixated on sin and salvation. Combining edge-of-your-seat suspense with arthouse flair, the horror-thriller follows two teenage runaways who become increasingly suspicious of the cult leader's absolutist vision. When Lydia arrives on the island, Saratoga is eight months pregnant with his child-the supposed "son of God." As the makeshift family descends into paranoia and violence, Lydia and Saratoga plot a daring escape that transforms them from outcasts to avengers.
