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.

Really liked this one. Original plot and pretty cool monster effects, especially for the time.

From previous viewings, a brilliant film . . . but unavailable in Canada on this service. Bummer.

Found myself much more into the mythology than I did the film. But it's a classic for a reason.
