About this deal

Barker establishes Frank to be a wayward stud who travels the Earth, presumably for the ultimate orgasm. I have fond memories of my first VHS tapes of this movie and eventual DVD and the first round of Blu-rays and this presentation still is a big highlight from Arrow's long list of excellent releases. Currently, the film is available on Blu-ray only as part of Arrow Video's Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box, but an individual release will be available for purchase next year.

In his feature-length debut as a director, Clive Barker follows a family that’s splintered by its subterranean desires. Both mixes also honor the rich and elegant beauty of Christopher Young’s score, which goes a long way toward distancing Hellraiser from the various other ’80s-era horror series. Now his former lover Julia (Clare Higgins) must kill to make him whole again; but the Cenobites want Frank back, and there’ll be hell to pay when they find him. Hellraiser was released by New World Pictures in 1987, putting its creator Clive Barker on the map as one of horror cinema’s and horror literature’s major icons, particularly with the help of a quote from Stephen King: “I have seen the future of horror, and his name is Clive Barker.I've done my best with Barker's literary efforts, some are fairly straight forward… others are a bit out there for my sensibilities. Blacks are mostly deep with excellent shadow detail, while brightness and contrast levels are virtually perfect.

Lovable everyday demon Pinhead (Doug Bradley) is just trying to do the right thing - be he struggles with the deep dark evil inside himself. The supplemental features on the disc include original trailers and TV spots; two audio commentaries; archival featrettes; video interview with actor Doug Bradley; video interview with former Coil member Stephen Thrower; and more. A few years later (or is it months), Frank's brother, Larry (Andrew Robinson, Cobra), and his second wife, Julia (Claire Higgins, The Fruit Machine), move into the same house where the box was opened. Meanwhile, Hellraiser: Bloodline sinks its hooks into past, present and future as it tells the story of Phillip LeMarchand, the 18th century toymaker who made the Lament Configuration puzzle box; his descendent John Merchant, a 20th century architect whose most recent building bears a striking resemblance to the Lament Configuration; and Dr.

Encodes across all four films are solid, with stable bitrates averaging the middle 70’s mbps noted from a few spot checks of the player information throughout. The Pursuit of Possibilities - brand new 60-minute discussion between acclaimed horror authors Paula D. Bloodline’s workprint isn’t the mythical first cut of Kevin Yagher unfortunately and doesn’t really do that much different from the theatrical cut (running the same duration almost) but it’s a really nice get for the set.

the clear winner between the two, but not enough, necessarily, to push potential viewers away if this is the only disc available.

It's the same BD-50 disc as before, only this time it's housed in a standard clear plastic case with reversible artwork. The multiple timelines are solid and the central conceit of the toymaker responsible for the box and his family’s attempts to fix their mistake is deliciously fascinating. Elvira, Horrorland’s hostess with the mostest, finally busts out on Arrow Video Blu-ray on 3rd December 2018 with this long-awaited, positively-bursting-at-the-seams special edition of her big screen debut, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark! The iffy Hellraiser: Judgement and Midnight Meat Trainjust shows that not everything should be made into a movie - and then the right filmmaker needs to be in charge when said opportunities arise. simply baffles rather than intrigues – the power of those visions that seemed spewed from…not even hell but somewhere else, somewhere we hadn’t, couldn’t even have thought of, remains.
