For anyone looking for the ultimate Hellraiser book, the wait continues. However, anyone with a real interest in the Hellraiser films should snap this brilliantly written book up immediately. It may be lacking in gloss, but it more than makes up for this in terms of content. Crammed with detailed research, it details the making of the series with a critical eye that is at once accessible and entertaining. True, it would have benefitted from full colour spreads from the films themselves and at least being printed on a reasonable quality of paper, but these are minor gripes. Given just how many badly researched and written (horror) film books there are that value style over content, it is refreshing to find a book that presents the reverse and gives us something for our money. All we can hope for now is that a future edition does increase the quality of the presentation with a good selection of colour stills. In the meantime this will more than do.
