Synopsis

Gang leader Frankie Boll realizes that he is dying of a rare disease. Terrified of burning in Hell after he dies, he makes a pact with Satan to spare him suffering in Hell in exchange for killing as many gang members as possible to supply Satan with more souls. Afterwards Satan puts Frankie in a death like coma and will obtain his soul after Frankie is buried. Frankie can live in Hell but will not suffer any torment. Problem is after he dies, Frankie is cremated by his wife and is never buried thus canceling the contract. Frankie now has no choice but to burn in Hell for all eternity!
