Christians believe in hell as a place of conscious and eternal torment. This they get from the Bible, in numerous places.

Answer

Of the three great monotheistic religions both Christianity and Islam have a heaven and hell, and judaism has only a heaven. Many other religions promise a reward or punishment for belief/non-belief, and of the 2,500 or so gods that have ever been believed in, around 300 of them have some risk/reward scenario similar to hell, though few I would imagine are so "hellish".
