This image may look like it was taken on the set of a Hollywood movie about demons from the underworld. You can almost—but not quite—make out the shapes of twisted, tormented souls who were trying to escape the fiery pits of a cruel afterlife. But this is no movie set; it's a real place. Found in Hawaii, this lava portal to Hell serves as a reminder to the locals that nature is weird and eternity is terrifying.
