Hellbound, a Korean drama series with the horror-thriller genre from Netflix, has been selected as the Best Horror Series 2021 at the Golden Tomato Awards, an award from the well-known review site, Rotten Tomatoes.
“Chucky and Midnight Mass fans may be surprised that those shows weren’t rated the best-reviewed Horror Series of 2021, since they were well received and got people talking.
“Instead, that honor goes to the Korean series Hellbound, a sleeper hit about celestial beings handing out decrees about who’s going go to hell, with all the strange dramatic ramifications therein. You’ll burn through the 6-episode first season,” wrote the Rotten Tomatoes.
The Hellbound, which stars Yoo Ah In, Kim Hyun Joo, Won Jin Ah, and Park Jung Min, was judged to have been ‘summoned by the devilish imagination of writer-director Yeon Sang-ho’ by ‘leverages its terrifying concept to thoughtfully explore human fallibility’.
Paramount+’s ‘Evil: Season 2’ and Apple TV+’s ‘Calls: Season 1’ starring Nick Jonas and Lily Collins took second and third respectively. While ‘Midnight Mass: Limited Series’ and ‘Chucky: Season 1’ followed in fourth and fifth place.
“The order reflects Tomatometer scores (as of December 31, 2021) after adjustment from our ranking formula, which compensates for variation in the number of reviews when comparing movies or TV shows,” the site explains.
The 6-episode Hellbound KDrama series can be watched streaming via the online video platform Netflix since November 19, 2021.
