Did You Know?


The popularity and success of this short has inspired fans to have a go at making their own Hellraiser short films. While this was in post production, Hellraiser SFX artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe made a short called 'No More Souls', but there are at this point at least four Hellraiser fans either developing or shooting their own movies. One of them is going to be another 'Chronicles' entry. See more »

I wasn't a big Hellraiser Fan until I saw this short. It had me hooked from the off. I have since hired the first three films and have been really entertained by them all. Rob Leetham and Adrian Palmer battle it out rather convincingly in this great short and it's was quite nice to see a relatively well known theatre face like Benjamin Humphrey playing a nasty piece of work. The whole thing actually made me feel rather nostalgic at times with the low budget effects which made the viewing even more enjoyable. All in all a brilliant short which I can highly recommend to people who have never seen the Hellraiser series or the hardcore fans.
