Low Budget Classic
- Hellraiser review by CP Customer
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.
