Hellraiser: Hellworld – ★★1/2

We reach the tail end of our Hellraiser series with number 8 in the franchise Hellraiser: Hellworld. Released an unthinkable and almost impressive 92 DAYS after Hellraiser: Deader was released. Honestly, I can imagine people renting out Deader and then three months later going back to Blockbuster (we had an

Hellraiser: Deader (2005) ★★

We are in the back end of our Hellraiser series and it sure as hell isn’t getting better. This time out we effectively return to the plot of Hellraiser: Hell on Earth. Being creative isn’t for everyone it seems. Welcome to Hellraiser: Deader Remember how we are left with Kirsty

Hellraiser: Hellseeker (2002) ★

A criminally stupid film, Hellraiser: Hellseeker is the first truly unforgiveable addition to the franchise that should be forgotten from your mind as soon as you finish watching it. Spoiler, there will be a lot of the film given away here, but it might be better to know this stuff

Hellraiser III : Hell on Earth (1992) ★★ 1/2

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, spelt the end of the franchise as we knew it. Away from its compelling origin and into the standard slasher fare that studios knew how to market. Trying to continue from where we left off, Pinhead is still in his sexy torture pillar. Or known

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) ★★★

Oh, what could have been, Hellbound: Hellraiser II had everything going for it, except a coherent story. The ultimate in missed opportunities to truly kick on an intriguing franchise. Following up straight after the events of the first Hellraiser, Hellbound finds Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) trying to explain to doctors what

Hellraiser (1987) ★★★★1/2

We start our Hellraiser series with the first of the franchise, the rest of the reviews will be split into two or so films at a time. But the first (and best) Hellraiser deserves its own singular review. Clive Barker created an unrelentingly dark film in Hellraiser and one that
