Home / Now Showing / HELLRAISER / HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II
HELLRAISER, 1987, New World Pictures, 94 min, USA, Dir: Clive Barker
In this first film in the HELLRAISER franchise, an antique puzzle box brought from Morocco to London unleashes a race of Cenobites, who love nothing more than inflicting pain on human beings. With his feature directorial debut, Clive Barker joined such filmmakers as Wes Craven and Sam Raimi among the ranks of horror’s most reliable auteurs, and lead Cenobite Pinhead – his face pierced by dozens of needles – joined the ranks of the genre’s most recognizable monsters. Starring Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins and Ashley Laurence.
HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, 1988, New World Pictures, 97 min, USA, Dir: Tony Randel
Confined to a mental hospital, young Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) insists her supposedly dead father is stuck in hell, controlled by sadomasochistic demons after being betrayed by his evil, occult-obsessed wife, Julia (Clare Higgins). Few believe Kirsty, except the thrill-seeking Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham), who is intrigued by S&M and the young woman’s lurid stories. So, when Kirsty and fellow patient Tiffany (Imogen Boorman) head to hell for a rescue, Channard and Julia are close behind.
