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.

Some great practical effects and the dreamlike weirdness really works. Also it makes my gay little brain happy.

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!
