El Infierno (English: Hell) is a 2010 Mexican black comedy crime film produced by Bandidos Films, directed by Luis Estrada and following the line of La ley de Herodes. The film is a political satire about drug trafficking, organized crime, and the Mexican Drug War. The film has been a critical and commercial success in Mexico.

The film was nominated for the 25th Goya Awards for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film.

El Infierno is rated NC-17 by the MPAA for some graphic violence and explicit sexual content.[1] In Australia, where more stringent censorship exists, the movie is rated MA-15+.


Benjamín "Benny" García is deported from the United States to his hometown in Mexico (a fictional place named San Miguel Arcángel). His life back home is a bleak picture. He cannot find an honest job and most of the town is held with the business of drug trafficking. Benny gets involved in the narco business, a "spectacular" job where he gets a lot of money, women and fun. But soon he finds out that the violent criminal life is not that easy and actually much less fun.
