HELLRAISER
1987, New World Pictures, 94 min, USA, Dir: Clive Barker

In this first film in the HELLRAISER franchise, an antique puzzle box brought from Morocco to London unleashes a race of Cenobites, who love nothing more than inflicting pain on human beings. With his feature directorial debut, Clive Barker joined such filmmakers as Wes Craven and Sam Raimi among the ranks of horror’s most reliable auteurs, and lead Cenobite Pinhead - his face pierced by dozens of needles - joined the ranks of the genre’s most recognizable monsters. Starring Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins and Ashley Laurence.
