A puzzle box reveals a realm of sadistic monsters led by a being named Pinhead, who torture the depraved man who unlocks it.

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.

Classic from the genius mind of Clive Barker. The first real horror film I ever watched, this one is near and dear to my heart. It was 1989, I was 11, my parents divorced and I was at my Dads. He was on call and had to go to work and left me home alone with the housekeeper who generally just left me alone. He had told me before that this VHS tape was OFF LIMITS. So of course, as soon as he left I snuck into his room, put this in a pushed play 🤫 I watched this film, at 12 years old, at night, by myself, in a huge 200 year old home. I was terrified. I mean TERRIFIED. And fascinated. And from that moment on, I’ve been hooked on horror. And Clive Barker
not my taste personally
I also came
A classic for a reason. I can’t believe it took me this long to finally watch! This is one I’m going to read the book it’s based on
Didn’t know what I would think of this but after watching it hyped up on monster with my s/o it’s become my favorite. Would recommend if you’re into weird body horror
