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.

What a classic! I've read that there might be a Hellraiser series in the works, that would be pretty awesome and i'm excited to see what they do with it.
It was good and of course a classic. Leading lady is gorgeous, the gore and scare is great, the story interesting. Everything questionable gets an explanation in the end (enough though it may not make sense without knowing some of the history of the series.) Definitely a good horror movie.
Classic old 80’s films never get old for me! And this is truly a great film of its time.. I love watching all the hellraisers there all great. And for horror of there time there fantastic! I highly recommend watching them and enjoying them as I do.
best part when pinhead looks and says" frrrank".
