In a place between pleasure and pain, there is sensual experience beyond limits. And in a world between paradise and purgatory, there is a horror that feeds the souls of evil. Welcome to the singular vision of Clive Barker and his landmark horror opus, Hellraiser.

Written and directed by Clive Barker, Hellraiser is one of the greatest UK horror films. Unfortunately it is often overlooked given its gruesome content and emphasis on blood. Made on a shoestring budget, the unique imagination, design and vision of Barker are captured with true unrestrained horror. This was the debut of Pinhead and his team of evil demons, the first of many nocturnal visits to our world. Hellraiser may have continued with varying degrees of success yet the original is still the strongest offering.
