Rotten Tomatoes

While his writing often concerns love, lust, and the perversion of the mind, flesh, and soul, Clive Barker’s work doesn’t exactly scream “traditional, lovey-dovey romance fare,” and neither should his cinematic masterpiece, Hellraiser. The film does indeed follow a love story — that of a cheating stepmother who is so horny for her husband’s brother that she kills strangers so he may be reborn from their blood — but chances are the skinless undead and leather-bound demons aren’t exactly going to mix well with roses, chocolates, and a candlelight dinner.
