    Hellraiser (Arrow) Blu-ray Review
    [​IMG]


    As an admirer of horror films of all shapes and sizes, Hellraiser is certainly one of the very best. Its sequels have been a series of increasingly diluted and evermore generic episodes that capitalized on the Cenobites and Pinhead in particular, but the original remains the benchmark film and perhaps the most original horror film of the 1980’s. And the Cenobites, a classic Barker creation of demonic creatures, unique and grotesque, have provided the sequels with the occasional great moment. These gothic figures, self-described as “Explorers in the further reaches of experience, demons to some,” are among cinemas most recognizable creatures and have in no small way influenced the visions of grotesque demons ever since.
