Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box Limited Edition Trilogy Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

IT WILL TEAR YOUR SOUL APART Stephen King was once quoted as saying: I have seen the future of horror... his name is Clive Barker. That future became reality when in 1987 Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead. Barker s original Hellraiser based on his novella The Hellbound Heart follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming the soul of her deviant Uncle... Frank. Picking up immediately after the events of the original Hellraiser Hellbound: Hellraiser II finds Kirsty detained at a psychiatric institute and under the care of Phillip Channard a doctor who abuses his position to realise his own dark aims. In Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth a reporter investigating a mysterious death at a nightclub finds herself in the way of Pinhead and the Cenobites who plan to bring their horrifying world into our own. Coming at a time when the genre was degenerating into self-parody Hellraiser offered a fiercely unique vision that approached its horrors with a far greater degree of seriousness than many of its contemporaries.. Along with its sequels the Barker-produced Hellbound and Hell on Earth Arrow Video is proud to present some of the most terrifyingly original films in the history of horror in brand new 2K transfers.

Triple bill of horror fantasy featuring the diabolical Pinhead. In 'Hellraiser' (1987), sexual profligate Frank Cotton (Sean Chapman) opens a Chinese puzzle box and discovers the entrance to Hell, where the resident Cenobites promptly rip the flesh off him. When Frank's brother Larry (Andrew Robinson), his wife (Claire Higgins) and daughter Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) move into Frank's house, a skeletal Frank appears to his sister-in-law and asks her to supply him with corpses for his regeneration. The sequel, 'Hellraiser 2: Hellbound' (1988), revisits the mythological world of a cult of sadists and the undead. While an obsessive psychiatrist (Kenneth Cranham) attempts to raise Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and friends to earth, Kirsty receives a message from her father from the other side, and goes on an underworld quest to save him from the clutches of Hell. In the second sequel, 'Hellraiser: Hell On Earth' (1992), a young investigative reporter, Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell), witnesses a vision of the horrific death of a tormented teenage boy and decides to find out the truth behind it. Her work uncovers the Lament Configuration Box that opens the door to the Cenobites' demonic world of pleasure and pain. Pinhead returns to earth, this time bringing an army of Cenobites transmuted from the flesh of his victims. His plan? To reclaim the box and free himself from Hell...
