ODDITIES THEATER: Hellraiser (1987)

Yo ho ho! It’s Saturday! And what do we do every Saturday? Yup, you know it… we get weirddddddddd.

Today we’re watching one of my all-time favorites, an absolute classic: Clive Barker’s Hellraiser.

The first time I ever watched this, my mind was bubbling. I was in awe of its originality. Such creativity! There’s truly nothing else like it. I like to revisit this one every year, and with the Fall weather in full swing, there’s no better time than the present.

If you like this, I recommend reading the original novella it was based on, The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. I also recommend watching Hellraiser II & III, but don’t waste your time with the many other sequels. Like many of the characters within it, the Hellraiser franchise has been suffering for a long, long time. At least we still have those first few to go back to.

Alright, well enjoy your extra long weekend, everyone! Stay safe.
