movies Hellraiser

The Hellraiser reboot starts tomorrow on HULU.

Hellraiser is based on Clive Barker's novella, The hellbound heart. It's pretty short, so I think I can finish it before showtime tomorrow evening.

Some people, myself included, were complaining that Pinhead is a woman in this movie version. Well, guess what?


This version of Pinhead is actually more true to the character in the book; androgynous and with a feminine voice.
Funny, but in the book, Pinhead is just one of the 4 cenobites. They don't have names. Members of the extra-dimensional religion called the order of the Gash. The one we call Pinhead is mentioned in one paragraph only, and yes, it is probably a woman.
Saw it..... Honestly, if it wasn't for the 3 Monster drinks I had while it was on, I don't think I could have stayed awake. Terrible movie. I watched it with 3 other people and by the end, we still didn't know what the hell it was about. There was no horror. There was no fun. There really was no anything except for 2 softcore porn scenes and one uncomfortable scene where 2 naked gay guys were making out in bed.... The cenobites just stood around like statues most of the time. Pinhead had all the personality of a zip code in Kansas. Junk. Garbage. crap. I can't remember if I've ever rooted for the protagonists to get killed, but I was cheering it on for this one.. I lost count on how many times the characters said 'fuck' but it was approximately every other sentence. Something you usually only see in amateur films that are being adlibbed by non-professional actors. Such a horrible waste of 2 hours. The make-up was terrible. The compositing was terrible. The lighting was for shit. About the only good thing I can say about this movie is that it finally ended,,, and that ain't sayin' much.
one uncomfortable scene where 2 naked gay guys were making out in bed....
LOL okay so you were never gonna watch Bros then

I thought hellraiser was kinda bad too, like 2/5 but I think most horror movies are slow and boring and bad, so i thought it was kinda typical for a horror movie.

I did expect the movie to take off more in the second half and it was sadly just more of the same
lead actress was likeable enough
