Hellraiser

Hellraiser

Directed by Clive Barker

A puzzle box reveals a realm of sadistic monsters led by a being named Pinhead, who torture the depraved man who unlocks it. Escaping Pinhead's wrath, what remains of Frank hides out in his attic, until a chance encounter leads him to enlist his brother's wife Julia, with whom he had a passionate affair, to lure victims home so Frank can feed off their blood. Clive Barker's essential 80s classic offered audiences weary of slashers a thrilling new alternative: a sexually-charged horror-fantasy with a villain more terrifying"”and goth"”than Freddy or Jason. Contains violence and gore.

I watched this after watching the new Hellraiser on Hulu (which is EXCELLENT). It's just as fun watching the original! The campy special effects are really something.

Not what I expected given the status it has in the horror genre. Spent way too much time focusing on the relationships for my liking. The gore was great (for the time) and I really like the concept. The cenobites were great (as always) and naturally the best part.

Pretty good! Has its moments, and the practical effects are decent.
