I remember it very well, when I was a kid, the poster for this movie used to really terrify me. Eventually, I finally saw it, twenty years later.

"What a totally awesome and unique horror movie. I can definitely say I've never seen anything like it, but in a good way. I can't believe it took me so long to finally get around to it!"

"Day 19: A movie that disappointed you Since this is considered to be one of the essential movies of the horror genre my expectations were way up for this one. But I was disappointed. It's not a bad movie but also not as good as I thought. Pinhead and the rest of the cenobites look awesome tho."

2016 Horror Movie Marathon (33 movies items)

"Watched October 1st I had actually made the choice to open this year's Horror Movie Marathon with Hellraiser a while ago. I wanted to start with a classic (check), a movie I've seen before (check), something with gore (check), and of course, an interesting story (check). I had been itching to re-watch Hellraiser for the past couple of months, but decided to save it for the marathon.
