There are certain people whose names are synonymous with horror; along with Stephen King, H. P. Lovecraft, John Carpenter and George Romero invariably Clive Barker's name will be found as well. That's not at all bad company to keep. Barker, a prolific writer of horror and dark fantasy, made his directorial debut with Hellraiser and, to this day, it's still my favorite work.

When I was a kid, the poster for this movie used to terrify me. Eventually, I finally saw it, twenty years later. Even though it is considered a massive horror classic, I wasn't sure what to expect, especially since I discovered last week that Roger Ebert really hated this flick. Well, for this time, I have to say I didn't agree with good old Roger. Indeed, I thought it was pretty good and Clive B... read more

" The Ups: One of the few original horror-fantasy movies that was cooked up during the 1980s in a time when most of what was released was inferior slasher movies. Beautifully filmed and with a solid cast. Ashley Laurence is one of the few absolute gorgeous scream queen virgins that has been on screen for the last two decades. It doesn't overexpose it's latex-covered demons like in it's sequels. The Downs: It is essential that one stomach blood and dismemberment and gruesomeness which makes this "

"The Players: Thrillseekers jaded enough by sex, drugs, and rock and roll that they feel the need to seek out supernatural kicks; in this case, Frank (Sean Chapman) and his unfortunate niece Kirsty (Ashley Laurence). The Rules: Just solve the puzzle box to win the chance to get your soul ripped apart. How To Win: Though he might claim otherwise, head Cenobite Pinhead is usually open to making deals, so just offer him someone else and he’ll probably let you off the hook. (Literally, even.)"

Ultimate Horror Films (68 movies items)

" Based on Clive Barker's novel "Hellbound Heart", the film is concerned with a supernatural group of entities known as the cenobites who believe the way to enlightenment is through the maximisation of pleasure and pain. The cenobites don't actually feature heavily in the film until towards the end. Rather the story centres on Frank, a man who has escaped them and requires the consumption live humans provided by his lover Julia to attain a full human form again. Their plans are however hindered "

Don´t Make Them Angry! (Possible Spoilers) (16 movies items)

"Pinhead his pure desire is to torture you, kill you, and eventually get your soul, also always has a bunch of friends that can help him on his tasks, and all you have to do for him to come for you is solve a puzzle, and puff! there he is summoning chains designed just for the porpuse of mutilating you in horrible ways. Even though apperently he doesn´t like to be this way, as he seems to be a fan of acupuncture. "
