Hellraiser (1987)

“Hellraiser” spawned an 11-film franchise that neither Dick Ebert nor Gene Lyons had ever seen because they were too afraid of Pinhead. This week, commissioner Jason B. changed all that.

Join the Shat Crew as we discuss dysfunctional ’80s couples, sexual deviance and Clive Barker’s thrifty but amateurish abilities as a director.

While Gene asks whether Julia was supposed to be sexy, Detective Ebert searches in vain for misdirection and meaning in the plot. The Shat Crew also explains the uneven nature of the cenobites and wonders why Kirsty is in the hospital.

Was the final battle a letdown? Did Steve even need to be in this movie? Does “Hellraiser” deserve its place on the Mount Rushmore of Horror? Have a listen and let us know what you think.
