A Labyrinth of limitless Pleasures
22 June 2015 | by blackboxlaSee all my reviews

This documentary is independently financed and allows the interview subjects to be more candid in their recollections explored with staggering depth that never gets tiresome, one of the greatest joys is that the interviews allow us to see where the cast and crew are now, and also sharing that the project often surpasses its own subject in terms of pure inventiveness.Even for the casual fan, this is one hell of an educational film., There's a lot to love about Leviathan, and virtually nothing to hate. It's not only an expertly crafted film about a beloved horror franchise, it's also a film about the legacy of Clive Barker, Image Animation, and ultimately, a film about the horror genre as a whole. Frankly, you won't find a horror documentary better than this one." The documentary also features 8 bonus feature mini docs on Clive Barker, the Music, the sequels, Hellraiser III and much more.
