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.

Some great practical effects and the dreamlike weirdness really works. Also it makes my gay little brain happy.
everything about this one is just an instant classic i love it
A great self contained movie to a wildly inconsistent series. On its own, it holds up.
Beautiful adaptation. I have watched it again and again. If only the hallway scene was not present!
