Product Description

Triple bill of horror fantasy featuring the diabolical Pinhead. In 'Hellraiser' (1987), sexual profligate Frank Cotton (Sean Chapman) opens a Chinese puzzle box and discovers the entrance to Hell, where the resident Cenobites promptly rip the flesh off him. When Frank's brother Larry (Andrew Robinson) and his wife (Claire Higgins) move into Frank's house, a skeletal Frank appears to his sister-in-law and asks her to supply him with corpses for his regeneration. The sequel, 'Hellraiser 2: Hellbound' (1988), revisits the mythological world of a cult of sadists and the undead. While an obsessive psychiatrist (Kenneth Cranham) attempts to raise Pinhead and friends to earth, teenager Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Lawrence) receives a message from her father from the other side, and goes on an underworld quest to save him from the clutches of Hell. In the second sequel, 'Hellraiser: Hell on Earth' (1992), a young investigative reporter, Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell), witnesses a vision of the horrific death of a tormented teenage boy and decides to find out the truth behind it. Her work uncovers the Lament Configuration Box that opens the door to the Cenobites' demonic world of pleasure and pain. Pinhead returns to the Earth, this time bringing an army of Cenobites transmuted from the flesh of his victims. His plan? To reclaim the box and free himself from Hell... The collection also contains two of Clive Barker's early short films, 'Salome' (1973) and 'The Forbidden' (1978).

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Hellraiser set from Clive Barker. 1 Oct 2004
Format:DVD
In this box are enclosed 4 disks, containing the first three Hellraiser movies, (the only three that Clive Barker really had any part in the making of), and these are in my opinion all excellent films, and at least the first two are classics, (the third isn't really stylised in the right way to make it a classic like the first two, but it is still a great movie). The reason I bought this box was to have the audio commentary on all three movies, and having had these movies on video for years I recognize that the movies in this DVD set are totally uncut, (and in the commentary this is confirmed), with some particularly gory parts of scenes which were edited out in the [American I think] version of the movies that I have on VHS. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that there are two different commentaries for the first movie, (one with Barker, Ashley Lawrence, and the screenplay writer of the next two movies who adds eruditely to the discussion), and one solo one by Barker that I have yet to watch but that I'm looking forward to. There are two commentaries for Hellbound, and one entertaining commentary for hellraiser three with Doug Bradley and the director, (who seems like a really nice guy). I would have jumped at the chance of buying this box if each movie just had one commentary and no other extras. Not only do you get two commentaries for two movies and one for the other, but each of the three disks that I am discussing have an extras section which contains at least two documentaries, and one with Doug Bradley on all three disks, (as well as on-set interviews with the directors of the first two movies and an up to date interview with Clive Barker on the Hellraiser disk). So there are loads of commentaries and documentaries. Could this be augmented? Read more ›

Format:DVD
I recently received this boxset as a present i had debated buying it but had eventually decided against it as id never been a fan of Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 or Hellraiser 3. All i can say is that this is one of the best DVD boxsets in my collection. All three movies are presented in beautiful widescreen with fully remastered picture and sound and in the case of the first two completely uncut for the first time. Each of the disks is jampacked with featurettes, trailers, honest interviews (its clear that series creator Clive Barker has no love for the later sequels!) and extremely entertaining commentaries for each movie. However like all DVDs great features do not make a great package but thankfully 2 out of 3 of these movies are dark, inventive masterpieces. If all you know about these movies are that it has some guy with nails in his head then you are in for a shock. Hellraiser plays almost like some weird family drama at times and has a claustrophobic feel with the action never really leaving the inside of a house but i dont want to spoil it for you because the first time i saw it it was not at all what i expected. Pinhead is merely a supporting character in the first two and it is these few breathtaking scenes that give him a kind of regal nobility. The original is still the best but having re-evaluated Hellbound, i found it almost as amazing as the classic original and it certainly does a brilliant job of following up plot strands left from the first movie. It is extremely stylish looking and has some fantastically surreal imagery contained within. Although the gore factor does take things a little too far in places and i aint squeamish so thats really saying something! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars We Have Such Sights To Show You!... 12 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great boxset for Hellraiser and Clive Barker fans, I was just amazed at the level of details and the amount of length that Anchor Bay/Starz would go to bring out as much special features for the first three films. The first two films are arguably the best in the series and considered to be classic 80's horror films. Clive Barker has created a world of horror that was very creative, it has a very dark and creepy atmosphere and unlike the later sequels in the series it has a ton of gore and violence and Pinhead instantly became a horror icon alongside Jason and the others. Hellraiser part 1 and 2 should be watched back to back but only if you have a strong stomach as both films continue the narrative storyline and are both very enjoyable to watch and are both horror/gore masterpieces.

The first film introduces us to Pinhead and the other demons from hell called cenobites that are summoned whenever the lament configuration box is solved by someone, the story is about a man named Frank brought partially back to life by the blood of his brother. He befriends his sister in-law Julia (brilliantly played by Claire Higgins) who agrees to supply the blood he requires to live, Julia decides to help Frank since they had an affair in the past, by seducing some strangers into the house and then killing them she allows Frank to suck the blood and Internal organs? of his victims to bring back his skin and look normal again but he is still haunted by the evil forces which held him captive in death. For Kristy Cotten (Ashley Laurence) its like a living nightmare when she finds out the truth and now she must stop her uncle Frank before its too late.
