Hellraiser – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2013 Day 30

Hellraiser
To me Hellraiser is the quintessential horror movie. Not, I hasten to add, my favourite. But if I were to suggest a type specimen for the species “horror movies,” Hellraiser would be among the first I thought of. Pinhead is instantly recognizable of course, and could hardly be mistaken for cuddly. You also have a mix of lust and pain which makes an excellent foundation for horror. And the question, what happens when your search for new experiences takes you too far? And importantly for the typical horror movie, it spawned a seemingly endless line of sequels.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
