Personal Quote:

[about Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)] I think that "Hellraiser II" will be . . . I think "worst" is the wrong word. "Better" in the sense that we use better special effects, more evil, more disgusting, more blood . . . this is Hellraiser (1987) plus. See more »

Trivia:

She found Hellraiser hard to watch. At the premiere, she left and went to the bar. She has never seen the whole movie. See more »

Star Sign:

Scorpio
