Not a documentary, an endless batch of unedited interviews
24 May 2017 | by derekjagerSee all my reviews

This film is mistitled. It's the story about all the people who made Hellraiser and Hellbound. You already know it's much too long. I finally gave up after 2 1/2 of the 4 plus hour version. It's basically asking 40 different people the same question, filming their response, and then clipping it all together.

There are some odd moments. Doug talks at length about Clare's audition for the part, how he read with several actors but when she finished her read, he knew she had the part. Then it cuts to Clare saying, "I don't know what Doug is talking about; I never auditioned for the role." And there is ZERO comment from the interviewers! Every interview is in its own silo with no commentary or corrections or clarifications asked for.

It's one of the strangest films since there seems to be no editing whatsoever; every play Clive wrote is discussed (who cares? Isn't this about Hellraiser?), the back, back, backstory of the special effects teams are told when we really don't care about their personal lives or experience.

Worst of all, it's boring. I kept waiting for some insights but other than everyone calling Clive a genus and saying how challenging their roles were, there's very little digging here. If this was chopped back to a 90 min documentary with some editing and chapter breaks and titling to give it some structure, it would help tremendously. But there isn't, so it just plods along and goes on and on and on....
