Review by Chucky
This is a groundbreaking horror movie for its time which was a welcome alternative to the myriad of cheap 80's slasher films that continued to clog up the horror pipeline. Clive Barker managed to create something extremely unique on a fairly miniscule budget with relatively decent acting, some impressive effects and developed its own iconic entity. The "Jesus wept" scene at the end is one of the greatest in horror history and should surely leave a lasting impression for most horror movie fanatics.

Review by Crash Dummie
One of the better horror movies to come out of the 80s, Hellraiser is wildly inventive, gruesome and unsettling. The Cenobites, a group of sadomasochistic eldricth beings from another dimension, present us with disturbing concepts and imagery and the special effects that support them still hold up today. No matter "what's your pleasure", if you have even a passing interest in horror, you should like this one.
