Hell Movies:

Heroine of Hell. 1996. Starring Catherine Keener as a painter with a serious sense of justice, who uses the Vision of Tundale as the thematic basis of her work. Although the film may not be a great success, it includes many interesting visual interpretations of the Tundale text and readings from the text into her friends’ answering machines.
