The outfits and hair are really 87 haha. I am in love with Ashley, had the pleasure of meeting her and Doug and most of the original cast, super nice people, that being said , i loved this movie before i met any of them. Pinhead is my 2nd favorite horror icon behind only Jason. You will see that my sister and I watched two different movies lol. It had great direction, effects, music, writing, and is very re-watchable, Tara doesn’t agree with at least half of that. It is highly original with a good motive. Great innovation by Cenobites, great cast. I find this really fun to watch, Tara doesn’t. There are boob shots and gore! I saw this movie for the first time when i was about 11 and i have loved it ever since, i was pinhead in 6th grade, the looks i got were priceless. I could not recommend a movie more highly than Hellraiser, the idea of our own nature making our hell and our twisted curiosities and naivity becoming the reason for and instruments of our damnation has always fascinated me.

Tara gave it a 37/100 and i gave it a whopping 101/100, yup i gave it extra points, that’s how much i love it!

About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
