The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #9: Hellraiser

This is a pretty epic horror flick directed by the great, Clive Barker, “Hellraiser”. The man responsible for bringing us the iconic horror character, Pinhead, played by the great, Doug Bradley. The film was also written by Barker as well, adapted from his own novel, “The Hellbound Heart”. This film is good ’cause it’s not really a slasher flick. It actually has a story, and a plot! It’s about a couple who moves into an old house, and discover this creature, which used to be the wife’s former lover. This creature lost most of his body to a trio of demons called, the Cenobites. He is brought back to life by the Cenobites, and forces his former lover to bring him blood, in order to complete his body.

The Hellraiser franchise has always been underrated. Of course, there are plenty of sequels after this movie, but I only liked the first two. This film here is pretty amazing though. Loved everything about it. I hear there is a re-boot coming soon of the Hellraiser franchise. If you haven’t seen the original “Hellraiser”, it is streamable for Netflix, get on it soon. The rest of the sequels of this franchise are Netflix streamable too.

Sucks to see it go straight to DVD. Just because movies go straight to DVD doesn’t always mean it’s bad. I think the film actually looks pretty good.

As you all know, I fucking love horror films and horror fiction. I’ve been huge on horror fiction my entire life. I love scary movies, blood guts and gore, anything scary, I grew up on the horror genre. But this film looked kind of cool after seeing the trailer a couple of times. For those who haven’t seen the trailer. Watch the youtube below.

For those who think this title of the movie is crazy and silly, hey, this is Clive Barker we’re talking here, and he’s always coming up with weird and silly things, this guy has a whacked imagination.
