It's a classic horror. Not as cheesy as A Nightmare on Elm street or Halloween etc. but still very good. If you like Clive Barkers film then you will like this. Quite a slow horror movie but suitably gory. Well worth a watch.

Two great horror movies get a well deserved DVD treatment 5 Feb. 2001
By "movie_freak" - Published on
Format: DVD
HELLRAISER: A typical, naive husband and his sexual unsatisfied wife move into a lonely old house that has the misfortune of containing the shredded remains of his soon-to-be-resurrected evil brother. Clever, well plotted and genuinely disturbing. Directing debut for horror novelist Clive Barker, and still remains to be his undisputed masterpiece. HELLRAISER II: Takes off hours later where the original finished. The sole survivor of the family massacre Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) finds herself in a mental hospital run by an occult-obsessed psychiatrist with a determination to open the gates to hell and the whole nightmare starts all over again. Not too bad a film as far as sequels go. Definatelly a work of art compared to the following chapters. Only this film was butchered by the MPAA on its theatrical release and lost a lot of its well deserved respect. THE DVD: Both films are THX certified which delivers clear enough picture and a beautifully haunting 5.1 Dolby track, and are presented in their original 1.85:1 widescreen format and a 4:3 fullscreen presentation. Both DVDs feature the original theatrical trailer, a picture gallery, a commentary track and a doco on each film. Both documentaries are entertaining and informative, but the one for Hellraier, "Resurrection", is much longer and more enjoyable than the one for Hellraiser II, "Lost in the Labryinth". The only letdown of this wonderful treatment is the absence of a Deleted Scenes section, especially for Hellraiser II. The two infamous scenes of Pinhead and the Female cenobite dressed as doctors, and chatterer going through the process of his face undergoing disgusting changes are scenes that every fan is howling to see which is a real let down. Both discs come packaged in a limited edition tin which is a definate must for any cult horror collector. This edition also contains a 48 page booklet with rare, behind the scenes pictures from Hellraiser which is always delightfully ugly to look at. The only downside of the packaging is the way the discs were packaged. They are both in a standard 2-CD case which is terriblly unsatisfactory. But apart from one or two issues, its a fair enough edition which will be a well treasured collector's item in the near-future.

Do not let the flesh murder the spirit. 4 Jun. 2006
By OAKSHAMAN - Published on
Format: DVD
_For years I was at a loss to explain why I watched the entire Hellraiser series. As a general rule, I avoid horror movies and slasher flicks. Yet, I made it a point to watch this entire series- more than once.

_Then it hit me. All of these movies have a "message." Under all the gore is one central message: "Do not let your flesh murder your spirit." Think about it, every character that is butchered and torn to bits has pretty well deserved it- it was their weakness and ambition that led them to it. Otherwise the Box would have held no fascination for them.... A spiritually centered being , such as a saint or a shaman, can laugh as he is being flayed by demons (or Cenobites.)

_"Pinhead" ,you see, is a spiritual teacher- if you give too much importance to worldly matters and the flesh, then you deserve what you get....

Hellraiser 1 & 2 tin boxset 23 Jan. 2002
By K. Cannon - Published on
Format: DVD
I've had this limited tin-set of the first 2 Hellraiser movies for about 6 months now. I've watched both DVD's several times and am very impressed with the quality. The widescreen transfer is excellent, the sound is phenomenal in THX. The extras are well done also, i liked the bonus full-length audio commentary tracks for both movies. The only thing that could have been added were the extra "Bonus Interviews" that were on the Collector's Edition VHS editions that came out a few years ago. I'm keeping those VHS copies just for that, and although it would have been nice to have them on DVD as well this is still a very solid, professional boxset. Any Hellraiser fan would be pleased and it is well worth the money to get this great boxset.

Perhaps one of the greatest horror movies of all time. 21 Oct. 2000
By Vincent Maloy - Published on
Format: DVD
I've allways been a fan of Clive Barker's Masterpiece "Hellraiser" and its awsome sequel. Both are featured on this great DVD Box Set and after almost 15 years of age, "Hellraiser" has lost not a bit of its gothic art, frightening horror and gory cruelty.
But I'm a little bit disappointed by the technally realisation of this DVD. Both Movies are presented in there theatrical ratio of 1.85:1 and in full frame. "Hellbound" ist in the widescreen mode exactly the same as in the full frame presentation, but matted with black bars. "Hellraiser" appears to be the 1.66:1 version also matted with black bars to show the 1.85:1 format. Compared to Anchor Bays "Halloween" Box, this is a leap back in the production of exclusive DVDs.
Never the less, "Hellraiser" is always worth buying and if it was just for the bonus material like the commentary of Clive Barker, Peter Atkins, Ashley Lawrence etc. The Movies are still great classics and a creepy way to enjoy an gloomy autum's evening. Let's just hope the next Anchor Bay DVD Box is a bit more like "Halloween".

Is this true? I would give 6 stars but... 28 July 2000
By Mc.Duff - Published on
Format: DVD
When I first read about the release of the Hellraiser/Hellbound: Hellraiser II - Special Edition I was very happy. I love the original movie and the sequel, I even would die to see DIRECTOR'S CUTS for the third and fourth part. And that's the point...
But the problem with this Hellraiser release is that it might be the same lousy version they put in the limited LaserDisc Box which I bought for over $100 years ago. Will they ever learn? Who wants such highly CUT versions of the best horror movies of all times? I can't believe that people give this release 5 stars. Does anybody ever heard Clive Barker's Commentary? He comments on every scene the MPAA forced him to cut out of the movie. Why can't we get an UNRATED release with all scenes?
Hellraiser 2 will hopefully be UNCUT but it won't be the Director's Cut which was released on LaserDisc a few years ago.
Be very carefull with this release...
Don't get me wrong. I would give 6 stars not if it would be possible but if AnchorBay would release the correct versions of the movies.
