Summary note: In his enduringly popular masterpiece The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis re-imagines Hell as a gruesome bureaucracy. With spiritual insight and wry wit, Lewis suggests that demons, laboring in a vast enterprise, have horribly recognizable human attributes: competition, greed, and totalitarian punishment. Avoiding their own painful torture as well as a desire to dominate are what drive demons to torment their "patients." The style and unique dark humor of The Screwtape Letters are retained in this full-cast dramatization, as is the original setting of London during World War II. The story is carried by the worldly-wise senior demon Screwtape played magnificently by award-winning actor Andy Serkis ("Gollum" in Lord of the Rings) as he shares correspondence to his nephew Wormwood, apprentice demon, in charge of securing damnation of an ordinary young man. All 31 letters lead into dramatic scenes, set in either Hell or the real world with humans, aka "the patient," as the demons say, along with his circle of friends and family.
