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!
10 Things That Make Me DJVoorhees.
1. My favorite food is pepperoni pizza. From the East Coast of course.
2. My most prized possession is a replica of the Hellraiser puzzle box. My sister haggled the price for me, but she still doesn't like touching the thing.
3. My dream job would be to nurse and rehabilitate wild animals.
4. My favorite comic books of all time follow the X-Men. I can never pick just one title.
5. My dream house would be all one story, have a huge back yard for my dogs, 2 coy ponds, a panic system, a solar array, a game room, a movie theatre, 3 different kitchens, an indoor swimming pool and a giant wall surrounding the whole damn thing.
6. If I could have magical powers I'd want something involving matter manipulation. I could do something small like remove a freckle or do something huge like throwing a massive planet at someone.
7. "Pale Blue Eyes" by The Velvet Underground is currently my favorite song.
8. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd start building that big old dream house I was talking about.
9. Creepy, sickly, old women scare me. Think "Zelda" from Pet Sematary, "Mrs. Kersh" from IT, and "The Countess" from Black Sabbath.
10. My first pet ever was a bunny named Buffy. Yes, after the vampire slayer. The movie, not the show.
