The hell that viewers see in Netflix’s “The Sandman” looks richly decorated. There are marble columns and fire pits, and it’s a welcome change to admire a flashier version of Lucifer’s palace. However, the rest of Hell appears to be shrouded in smoke and CGI torches. Aside from Mazikeen, who looked terrifyingly awesome, not many demons were shown. Instead, there were only glimpses of a mob of monsters with no faces that could hardly be seen individually. Viewers only see the inhabitants of Hell from afar, missing out on the opportunity to show how diverse these demons are. Sadly, it makes them and the Hell scenes unremarkable.
Obviously, it’s easier to create a mob of demons in the comics. Panels do not have the same budget constraints as television productions. With a reported budget of close to 15 million dollars However, each episode, the series can afford to spice up the demons of Hell. Despite the budget constraints, the show could have used realistic effects to bring a handful of monsters to the forefront, adding a sense of danger to Dream’s journey. Without fear of what might happen to Dream, it would be a lot harder to see what happens during the 10-hour episodes. The performance underestimates the power and necessity of fear.
