Reviews


80
Empire - Unnamed
With Hellraiser, Clive Barker created one of the most genuinely disturbing movies of the last 20 years.
80
The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
Utterly bizarre and entirely ridiculous – and yet effective, an imaginative Guignol festival, like the goriest of soap operas, in which one wrong move opens a portal to hell.
80
Time Out London - Nigel Floyd
A serious, intelligent and disturbing horror film.
80
The A.V. Club - Keith Phipps
Pinhead barely appears in Hellraiser, a film that, with its intense and uncomfortable family drama, might have even worked without him. With him, however, it becomes one of the most innovative and memorable horror films of the '80s.
78
Austin Chronicle - Marjorie Baumgarten
This skillfully creepy film tells the story of some housemates who experience unwelcome visits from a partially decomposed former resident who rises from beneath the floorboards. Seems he wants the flesh and blood of the new residents in order to settle some old scores.
