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.

Unique. One of the best horror movies ever made. The film is simultaneously perfect and imperfect.

One of my top 5 favorite films of all time. A masterpiece of horror cinema :) For the people asking - Clive Barker is queer, and this film & novella were heavily inspired by Coil & the fetish segment of the gay scene in the 80's. That's why it was listed in the Queer section of Shudder.
