This week, we have the first of a two-part Hellraiser series, starting with the 1987 original Hellraiser directed by Clive Barker himself. Andrew Robinson, who had played the mad killer Scorpio in Dirty Harry, here plays two characters with great skill, but the real star is the concept of the Cenobites.
These “super-butchers” are a completely original concept, demonic sense freaks who show up to torment people who have exhausted the limits of pleasure and pain. We’ll be doing the first and second Hellraiser movies in this retrospective. Tune in for Hellbound: Hellraiser II next week!
