Now we got a interesting horror film.
The plot involves a man named Frank who buys a puzzle box in Morocco. After Frank solves the puzzle, a bunch of chains tear him apart and a black robed figure takes the box and returns it to normal. Some time later, Frank's brother named Larry and his wife Julia moves into the house. It turns out Julia had an affair with Frank. After Larry cuts himself, the blood resurrects a skinless Frank who Julia finds and still obsessed with. He explains the box opens a portal to a realm of new carnal pleasures where the Cenobites subject him to the extremes of sadomasochism. So Julia starts murdering men so Frank can fully resurrect but the daughter, Kristy, gets the box where she meets the Cenobites and their leader, Pinhead. They make a deal if Frank confess to his crimes, they will take him back in exchange for her freedom. After Larry and Julia are killed, Kristy tricks Frank and the Cenobites tear him apart but they turn on Kristy who uses the box to banish them. She tries to destroy the box but doesn't realize a wing creature saves the box and gives it back to the merchant from the beginning who sells it again.
So this is a different type of horror film from Freddy or Jason. More mystical elements are involved and the film has some disturbing images. It's interesting Pinhead was barely in this but then he became popular where the sequels focus on him. The Cenobites are interesting characters with unique designs. I haven't seen much of this franchise but I am curious. Apparently the film had to censor itself so it wouldn't get an X rating. It would have been even more disturbing. So an ok film, give it a try.
📦 This looked like a nice spot for a photo so I shot for a few minutes as the owner of the house walked her dog across the street. When I was finished she walked over and I asked if she lived there and thanked her. She understood that it was a good setting and said I could take photos there any time. I showed her the Pinhead figure and asked if she had ever seen the character. She never saw it before but said how cute he was. I agreed then explained it's from a very scary movie. I am going to print a photo or make a magnet of this and leave it for her as a treat.
Oktober dag 5: Igår såg jag tvåan och idag blev det nästa film i serien. Gillar den inte lika mycket som den förra, mestadels för att den tar lite för lång tid på sig för att sätta igång ordentligt. Den första timmen är tyvärr rätt seg.
Det är fortfarande en bra film dock och den sista halvtimmen när helvetet bokstavligt talat brakar loss är helt otrolig. Specialeffekterna och alla designer är fortfarande helt fantastiska. Blodigt och obehagligt till fullo. Betyg: 7/10 (Ett lite svagare 7/10 än ettan, men ändå 7/10) #october#halloween#horrormovies#31moviesin31days#cozyween#hellraiser3
Day 2: Hellraiser 3!
You guys ready for a HOT TAKE? I actually enjoy this movie a whole bunch. Pinhead is featured way more and it's well made for the most part. I'm watching the Arrow Video release and it looks really good
