Queen guitarist Brian May has shared a trailer for his new short film, One Night In Hell.

May teamed up with animation company Unanico Group to create the film that is based on May’s own collection of Diableries, stereoscopic cards published in France during the 19th century depicting scenes from hell.

May published a book on the subject in 2013, Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, which he co-authored with historians Paula Fleming and Denis Pellerin.

Speaking in interview with the UK’s Classic Rock Magazine, May said: “Paul Laikin from Unanico got in touch with me originally because he’d seen the book and found the visuals so inspiring. We immediately realised that we both spoke the same language, and both shared a passion for these things, and it all happened very quickly after that.”

“I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s basically a day in the life of Satan in Hell. It’s very tongue-in-cheek, because that’s what the Diableries were – they started as a rather stern depiction of the religious teachings of the time, but evolved into a parody of those teachings.”

“In the film we’ve mainly concentrated on the personalities of the characters in the cards, and the thread through the film is this one little guy who arrives in Hell with a strange little suitcase under his arm, and it’s about his journey through various rooms in Hell.”
