Hellraiser is a 1987 British horror film written and directed by Clive Barker, and produced by Christopher Figg, based on Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart. The film marked Barker’s directorial debut. The film involves the resurrection of Frank (Sean Chapman), who had opened the door to an alternate dimension and had his body torn to pieces by creatures known as Cenobites. Years later, Frank’s brother Larry (Andrew Robinson) moves into their late mother’s abandoned house with new wife Julia (Clare Higgins). An accident causes some of Larry’s blood to spill on the attic floor, which triggers Frank’s resurrection. To complete his resurrection, he requires more blood which Julia provides while Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence), Larry’s daughter, discovers Frank’s puzzlebox which leads her to meet with the Cenobites.

Id say the latter easily makes up for the badly ageing part 3, though it has its moments. Glad to see the uncut version included, and the deleted scene from Hellbound is quite a coup. Even in recent interviews with Doug Bradley & Nicholas Vince, Im pretty sure they both said the surgery scene went no further than a photo.

I do wish itd been possible to include Hellraiser: Bloodline in this set completing the films Clive Barker & Peter Atkins were involved with but whats here is wonderful.
