Product Description

Amazon.ca

Having made his reputation as one of the most prolific and gifted horror writers of his generation (prompting Stephen King to call him "the future of horror"), Clive Barker made a natural transition to movies with this audacious directorial debut from 1987. Not only did Barker serve up a chilling tale of devilish originality, he also introduced new icons of horror that since have become as popular among genre connoisseurs as Frankenstein's monster and the Wolfman. Foremost among these frightful visions is the sadomasochistic demon affectionately named Pinhead (so named because his pale, bald head is a geometric pincushion and a symbol of eternal pain). Pinhead is the leader of the Cenobites, agents of evil who appear only when someone successfully "solves" the exotic puzzle box called the Lamont Configuration--a mysterious device that opens the door to Hell. The puzzle's latest victim is Frank (Sean Chapman), who now lives in a gelatinous skeletal state in an upstairs room of the British home just purchased by his newlywed half-brother (Andrew Robinson, best known as the villain from Dirty Harry), who has married one of Frank's former lovers (Claire Higgins). The latter is recruited to supply the cannibalistic Frank with fresh victims, enabling him to reconstitute his own flesh--but will Frank succeed in restoring himself completely? Will Pinhead continue to demonstrate the flesh-ripping pleasures of absolute agony? Your reaction to this description should tell you if you've got the stomach for Barker's film, which has since spawned a number of interesting but inferior sequels. It's definitely not for everyone, but there's no denying that it's become a semiclassic of modern horror. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic horror April 20 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite horror movies and a classic ahead of it's time.Hellraiser is a very imaginitive and unique horror classic.It was made I believe in the late 80's and it delivers the goods;story wise,gore wise and the soundtrack is one of my favorites,done by Christopher young(Nightmare on elm street 2).Move over Stephen King,here comes Clive Barker.

By falcon
Format:DVD
wow.this movie is truly an experience.love it or hate,when it's over it
will probably stick with you for awhile.for me,i thought this movie was
brilliant.it had a great story to it,with great characters.i guess you
would call a it horror movie,but i would call it more of an experience.
there are some gory scenes in the movie,and there are some scenes that
are disturbing and even repulsive.but the gore and guts are done much
more tastefully here than in most 'horror' movies.and there is actually
a story that all of this fits into.i didn't find it gratuitous at
all.there are some things in the movie that could certainly be
offensive to some people.there is some religious themes that some
people would find less than positive.and there a lot themes and images
in this movie that i don't think had been explored much before,if at
all.in my mind,the main villain in this movie(though i don't think he's
really a villain in the usual sense) dubbed Pinhead(for obvious
reasons)is possibly the most iconic(or at least should be)character of
at least the last thirty years.that may sound like an exaggeration,but
the other big name screen villains don't hold a candle to this
character.there was just so much more thought gone that went into the
character.the others,not so much.anyway,if you are able to throw away
all any preconceived notions and see this film for what it is,i think
you will get something out of it.what that something will be is hard to
say,but it might be different for each person.this is all just my
opinion,but for me,i have to give this movie a perfect 5/5 for being a
true cinematic achievement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hellraiser-the Cut Version- Oct. 8 2007
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Yes my friends here we are again with another cut version of a film on DVD.
How sad the state of the industry.As a consumer I really feel a big let down(i.e.cheated) with these people/companies who are just out to get their bucks and seem to have no remorse or moral sense of obligation to the people who buy their products.Let's look around for a moment.
We have two of tinseltowns' biggest names Lucas and Spielberg.Lucas up until recently refused to release the original theatrical versions of the original Star Wars trilogy.When he finally did(after years of fan "begging") they are in a terribly poor state of transfer,alongside his newer "vision" versions(in pristine condition,thank you very much!).Spielberg has outright refused to release the theatrical version of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" on DVD ....period.It's gone though quite a few incantations on DVD.But the slipcases of the versions out there won't tell you this isn't the original version.Then we have the huge Star Trek franchise with its' first movie "Star Trek-the Motion Picture".It has not been made available on DVD in it's original theatrical form either.But AT LEAST they tell you up front the one they do have is a new "directors cut".
Then you have MGM that tells you one thing(on the slipcase,on the DVD,etc) but it's another when you buy and watch.Case in point:"The Frankie and Annette" collection(see my review)where the entire collection is supposedly widescreen and it isn't.Then you have a very minor company that re-releases a Laurel and Hardy classic"March of the Wooden Soldiers"(see my review)that is supposed to be one thing and upon close examination not up to the hype of its' creators.And on and on,ad nauseum.
Now we come to Hellraiser.A wonderful movie of its' genre....

4.0 out of 5 stars Taste Their Pleasures Nov. 26 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Larry Cotton (Andrew Robinson) and his selfish wife Julia (Clare higgens), move into his childhood home, which appeared to have been occupied by his brother, Frank Cotton (Sean Chapman). Years prior and just before her wedding to Larry, Julia had a passionate affair with the hot-blooded Frank and when she finds several pictures of him in the house, old memories and passions resurface. Meanwhile, hiding in one of the empty, dilapidated rooms is a weak and skinless (yes, skinless) Frank who was rejuvenated by Larry's blood when he accidently cut himself with a nail during the move. Frank, who is in need of human blood in order to regenerate fully, convinces Julia to bring home unsuspecting men so he can nourish off them.

Unbeknownst to her, Frank had previously opened a portal to an infernal netherworld and summoned the powerful Cenobites (self proclaimed “Explorers in the further regions of experience” and are “demons to some, angels to others”) by solving a mysterious puzzle box. When this box is opened, the Cenobites will torture and inflect unimaginable pain (or the ultimate pleasure, I guess depending on what your tolerance is for physical torture and dismemberment) in a hellish realm but the regenerating Frank has somehow escaped their clutches and is fearful of the day they will find him. In the meantime, Larry's teenage daughter, the beautiful Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence), accidently stumbles unto Frank and Julia’s hellish agenda and his mysterious puzzle box and trying to discover the truth, opens the portal to hell and summons the blood thirsty Cenobites once again.

This sick and twisted horror tale came from the wicked imagination of horror/fantasy writer Clive Barker.
