Interesting in parts, but it's a bit too interested in the effects. Also, there aren't any interviews with Clive Barker, which seems strange considering that he wrote and directed the film.
A bit let down by this documentary. Though chock full of make-up effects stories and interviews with the artist, it is glaringly lacking in material from Clive Barker other than archival footage.
Never was a fan of the Hellraiser movies but thoroughly enjoy these documentaries. Would come back to these before watching the actual films.
Solid look at the “making of” aspect - especially from a Effects standpoint. Really appreciate the creativity it took to make things happen in the 80s compared to today’s CGI driven films.
I love Hellraiser, but this documentary was boring. It's not bad, just too long, slow, and dull for my taste.
