Ep. 03-39: Hellraiser (1987)

Hellraiser is the tale of a married couple, Larry (Andrew Robinson) and Julia (Clare Higgins), who move into an old house belonging to Larry’s missing brother, Frank. Shortly after they move in, Julia discovers a hideous creature hiding in the attic that is actually the remains of Frank, her former lover. Having lost his earthly body to a hellish group of S & M demons, the Cenobites, Frank was brought back into our existence by a drop of his brother’s blood on the floor. He soon persuades his former mistress to bring him humans to sacrifice and complete his body… but the Cenobites will not be happy when they discover this.

Episode 39

Hellraiser (1987), based on the novella The Hellbound Heart and Clive Barker’s directorial debut, was and remains one of the most original concepts for a horror movie ever made. Barker, who came from a theatrical background, is also an accomplished painter, author, and filmmaker… and these talents are clearly present in this one-of-a-kind film. Join us as we discuss Barker’s origins and the elements that brought this incredible vision (and others, including Candyman, 1992) to us. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys escorts you to an alternate dimension where pain and pleasure measure equally and Pinhead is waiting to assist your exploration of them.
