5 5 stars!... What else?erebus7 | 24/08/2009 | See all erebus7's reviews (29)It looks like me and 'Movieaddict' are the only people who see sense when writing a review for this movie. How can Hellraiser be geiven LESS than 5 stars? First of all I just shrug off those who gave the movie 2-3 stars because they obviously haven't got the slightest idea of what makes a good movie. The movie is adapted from Clive Barker's (one of the greatest horror writers of our time) The Hellbound Heart.; brilliant book; brilliant movie. One of the first things a movie lover has to do is put themselves in the mindset of when the film was released. If you watch this movie with the knowledge of 'The Matrix'-style effects, you're obviously not going to enjoy it!The movie had brilliant special effects for its time. A terrific plot (obviously) and it created one of the most renowned horror characters ever; Pinhead. This guy is up there with Freddy, Jason, Michael, Leatherface - the lot. So its worth buying just to witness the birth of an iconic horror legend.If you're still not convinced then picture this; the movie creates a completely new ideology of hell. There's no fire,flames or the big red beast with horns. There's just... pain - mind numbing, nerve shredding suffering with hooks, chains, knives - basically anything that can hurt you.For the price that Play is offering you'd be a fool not to take advantage of it. Even if you only ever watch it once or twice, you can be satisfied with the knowledge that you own a piece of horror movie history that has helped shape the way horror movies are made today. 5 Stars for a Horror classic!
