Hellraiser (1987)

Written and Directed by Clive Barker and Starring Ashley Laurence, Doug Bradley, Andrew Robinson and Clare Higgins

Plot : Frank, a man of perverse appetites seeks out a box and gets it for a heavy price and is sent to hell but escapes, later needing to be restored with help from his brothers wife but hell doesn’t give up that easy.

The outfits and hair are really 87 haha. I am in love with Ashley, had the pleasure of meeting her and Doug and most of the original cast, super nice people. I loved this movie before i met any of them. Pinhead is my 2nd favorite horror icon behind only Jason. You will see that my sister and I watched two different movies lol. It has great direction, effects, music, writing, and I have watched it many times since that first viewing. Tara doesn’t agree with at least half of that. It is highly original with a good motive. Great innovation with each of the Cenobites, great cast. I find this really fun to watch, Tara doesn’t. There are boob shots and gore! I saw this movie for the first time when i was about 11 and I have loved it ever since, i was pinhead in 6th grade, the looks i got were priceless. I could not recommend a movie more highly than Hellraiser. The idea of our nature making our own personal hell and our twisted curiosities and naivety becoming the reason for and instruments of our damnation has always fascinated me.

Tara gave it a 37/100 and i gave it a whopping 101/100, yup i gave it extra points, that’s how much i love it!
