3 IT WILL TEAR YOUR SOUL APART .....AGAIN !MovieAddict | 27/11/2007 | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer This four movie collection is the best of all 8 and counting Hellraiser movies. Parts 4 -8 are not included for the simple fact, that there not very good and parts 6-8 have not even been released onto reigion 2 yet ( no great loss ! )Hellraise 1987This is the best of the bunch, being one of the greatest British horror movies in the past 20 years.Also the music by Christopher Young is mesmerizing in it's power and adds extra quality to this excellent low budget movie.*****Hellraiser 2 : Hellbound 1988continues the story ,but never manager to be anywhere near as good. The film takes us to Hell, But if hell is a load of wobbley cardboard corridors, it's not such a terrifying place !The music again by Christopher Young is still amazing, making the film feel better than it actually is, but the make-up effects are still amazing.**Hellraiser 3 : Hell on earth. 1992This is the one where they tried to turn Pinhead into a Freddy copy. This never works as Pinhead was a differnt beast. But the energy of the film is high and the gory effect still do impress. Not as good as the excellent original but a improvment on the second movie.***In all ,a mix bag of films, but all do entertain, But compare these offering to the terrible late additions. and you will see that these are far superior movies.There is only one movie in this series that does raise Hell and that is the original 1987 classic.
