Jigoku presents a thoroughly traditional Japanese perspective of the fate of sinners awaiting them in the underworld. In Ishii’s Jigoku we witness both underworld and earthly scenarios through the eyes of Rika, a young woman graciously granted a vision of hell by the underworld’s goddess, Emna. In allowing Rika to see first hand what awaits sinners after death, the goddess Enma hopes that Rika will correct her ways before it is too late.
The film consists of roughly three parts, the first two involving separate depictions of earthly sins and their corresponding tortures, and the last dealing with Rika’s escape from hell and repentance.
