HELLRAISER is one of the freakiest movies of my childhood, the sequels are pretty rad, too, but nothing will ever match the scares the first film gave me as a teenager, soooo gooood

I love this movie and I remember when it first came out it was considered to be one of the goriest movies ever made. Pinhead and the cenobites gave me some sleepless nights as a kid. Good stuff, keep the reviews coming!

Meat Train is a great adaptation! I share your dislike of Cooper: he's easily one of my least favorite actors ever. In that film, however, he's actually pretty great. It's easily one of the most violent films I've ever seen (the first killing scene in the train is, literally, eye-popping) but it suits the story remarkably well. All in all, it's a grade-A film!

I have all, and I mean ALL of the Hellraiser series on DVD (in bootleg form, hey, they were a gift.) I had an obsession with going up to the roof of this warehouse that I lived in back in Philly in the wee hours of the morning to read Cliver Barker's Books of Blood. To this day, cheesy special effects and softcore 80s torture porn aside, those movies can scare the ever-loving shit out of me.
Have you seen, what is it, The Night Train, or whatever with Bradley Cooper? I can't stand him, but it does Clive Barker some pretty good justice.
