Director Tony Randel claims the dark tone of the movie reflected his own mindset on The world at the time. See more »
When Julia bends the photo of Pinhead as a human, it's unbent in the photo album...but we'd already seen close ups of that same picture bent in the exact spot earlier in the film. See more »

The new special edition laserdisc from Lumivision features the restored "Kirsty's Room" sequence (also featured in the japanese disc) as well the additional graphic scenes that were cut to achieve an R rating. The total running time of this latest version is 99 minutes. The laserdisc also contains audio commentary from director Tony Randel and screenwriter Peter Atkins were they state that the infamous "surgery room" sequence turned out to be a disaster and therefore was never included in any version of the film, and will probably never see the light of day.

All time fav. Beautiful, visceral, multi-layered and vaguely erotic.
Clive Barker is still the king. He brings us to a world where monsters have politics, the 5 senses rule, and we sometimes question whether our pre-notions of pain are as accurate as we think. The Hellraiser series is a lush, nightmarish, subliminal journey into human desire, masochism, mythos and madness. Pinhead is not so much the generic, evil antagtonist as he is a source of comfort and logic sometimes. Clive Barker has often toyed with our preconceptions that all "monsters" must be blindly destructive brutes, as opposed to the endearingly rational and decidedly intelligent Cenobites. Perhaps the fact that I have Cenobites tattooed makes me biased;) But it's still a unique piece with gorgeous imagery (to some.) Angels to some, demons to others... If you haven't seen Hellraiser 1 and 2 (the rest are not so great IMHO)...you must!
