Hellraiser "Jesus wept"
Jul 02, 2018 Season 1 Episode 51
Julia Marchese and Marion Kerr/Teri Gamble
Clive Barker's feature film debut has "Clive Barker" written all over it, and that's why Hellraiser works so well - it's one man's vision to marry gore and sex, repulsion and glamour. The story is fresh and unashamed of its perversity, Ashely Laurence shines in her first movie role as Kirsty, a bad ass Final Girl up there in the ranks - I mean, she's fighting demons (or angels?) from hell and she holds her own. An all around top score of 5's from us means that this film ROCKS.
