Editorial Reviews

Twenty years ago Clive Barker unleashed a nightmare like no other, a deliciously depraved vision of hell on earth that changed the face of horror forever. Two decades later, it stands alone as the carnage classic whose power to shock and disturb remains undiminished. We have such sights to show you: This is HELLRAISER like you've never experienced it before!

4.0 out of 5 stars "What's your pleasure Mr. Cotton?" October 23, 2007
Format:DVD
Be forewarned that this review is primarily for the DVD release of Hellraiser, not the film itself. It's no secret that Anchor Bay has done an excellent job bringing classic and cult horror films to DVD, even if it's over and over again. The 20th Anniversary Edition of Clive Barker's Hellraiser adds a few new extras, while bringing over the same extras that were available from the older DVD release of the film. What's new here are the interviews with the film's stars Doug "Pinhead" Bradley, Andrew Robinson, and Ashley Laurence. Other than that, it's the same stuff that we had before, including the interesting commentary by Barker and Laurence. If you already own the previous release of Hellraiser, the new interviews alone aren't any reason to go out and pick this up whatsoever. Anchor Bay has quite a habit of double and triple dipping their DVD's (there is yet again another edition of the original Evil Dead on the way as well), and the 20th Anniversary Edition of Hellraiser is no different. As for the film itself, it's an excellent and original exercise in violent horror that still holds up 20 years later, and remains Clive Barker's crowning film achievement. If you don't already own Hellraiser on DVD, then by all means pick this edition up, but as said before, if you already own it, there's no reason to pick this edition up too.

Format:VHS Tape
Hellraiser is an extreme horror lover's dream come true. Clive Barker's unique vision marked a virtual rebirth of the genre at a time when slasher sequels were the fun, yet predictable, norm. Although the premiere setting for viewing this movie is a crowded theater of screamers (and sick puppies like myself who find humor in gore), one can still achieve a quite satisfactory effect watching this movie alone in the dark. Some horror creators rely on blood and gore for its own sake, others rely on the story itself to produce the desired effect. Clive Barker is one of the few horror geniuses who can make copious amounts of gore an integral and necessary part of the story. Hellraiser can be deliciously gross, so those with weak stomachs should beware. It features rats; decayed, maggot-infested meat; and copious amounts of blood--and that's just the teaser. Later there are acts of cold-blooded murder, human dismemberment by arrays of chains, a partially formed, pus-dripping, oozing carcass, and then the incredible Cenobites themselves.
The movie at its simplest level is a retelling of a story that goes back to Goethe's Doctor Faustus and beyond--when you sell your soul to evil forces, you will regret it. Frank Cotton is a despicable, uncaring man who has grown bored with life's most extreme pleasures. When he hears about and eventually acquires a puzzle box which can open the door to a new world of perverse pleasures, he finds out that one man's pleasure is another man's pain under the tutelage of the Cenobites. Somehow, he manages to escape the other world, and when his brother's blood is spilled in his chamber of horrors, his body begins to reform itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic of the genre. May 26, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
In 1986, Clive Barker wrote a novella called "The Hellbound Heart" which was and by all means still is a brilliant example that in a space of roundabout 160 pages a skilled horrormaster like Barker can convey horror and suspense enough to shock and scare the reader. Barker is the same one who says that there are no new stories, only new ways to tell. It is a refreshingly original story rich in gruesome details. Then, in 1987, Barker himself got the opportunity to adapt his novel to the screen. This film immortalized the legendary villain called Pinhead, played by Doug Bradley. The film is just as gruesome as the book if not more. I'd say that I had no doubt the film would be faithful to the novel because after all it was the novel's writer who was directing the movie in the first place! I just rewatched Hellraiser last night and I reread the book today. It's short enough to be read in one sitting...and compelling enough, too! To me this film is a contemporary masterpiece of the genre. It's not only an excuse to show flayed, skinned glistening on screen, no. Unlike what others say, there is a story here too, and to me at least, it's a very original one. Andrew Robinson, Claire Higgins and Ashley Laurence give very good performances to back up this film...but the real heros behind it are director/writer Clive Barker and the special effects creator, Bob Keene. The scene with Frank's reanimation has got to be one of the grossest and most stunning effects I've ever seen. And also, considering this film only cost one million dollars to do, I think that that price was a bargain. Congratulations to all!

5.0 out of 5 stars He'll tear your soul apart. October 15, 2006
Format:DVD
PLOT: The film begins at some sort of bazaar in the Middle East. A man named Frank Cotton (Sean Chapman) purchases a strange, antique puzzle box known as the Lament Configuration. Frank is an impulsive and violent man who has grown weary of the many pleasures available to him on Earth. He has heard that the box can lead him to pleasure beyond any that Earth can provide. Back at his home in England, Frank goes into his attic and solves the puzzle box. Suddenly it opens up and chained hooks come out and rip into his flesh. Demonic creatures known as Cenobites appear to give him what he asked for. Too late, Frank now realizes that the Cenobites' idea of sensuality may not be perfectly aligned with that of mortals, and that he has instead condemned himself to an eternity of torture. The only remnant of himself in the "real" world is the residue of his blood and flesh on the floorboards in his house. Some time after Frank's disappearance, his brother Larry (Andrew Robinson) and his new wife Julia (Clare Higgns) move into Frank's abandoned house. Larry has a teenage daughter named Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) from his first marriage who recently got her own place. On the day Larry is moving in, he accidentally bumps into a loose nail in the house and tears his hand open. Blood drips everywhere on the attic floor, so he and Julia go to the hospital so he can get stitches. The drops of blood from the accident cause Frank's body to begin regenerating from the residue in the floor boards. His heart reforms and begins beating, and the bone and organs of his body return, but he lacks skin and flesh. Julia, who was once Frank's lover before marrying the mild-mannered Larry, later discovers him in the attic and takes pity on him. She agrees to help restore him. Read more ›

Did any one read the book? The Hellbound Heart?
I read the book after seeing the movie and view them as two different versions of the same story. I can appreciate both for different reasons.
