Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II
Clive Barker’s Hellraiser was another of my first horror movies. It showed me that horror movies could be so gruesome and twisted that it leaves a lasting impression on you. I do not watch Hellraiser like I would Nightmare on Elm Street but I definitely do hold it in high regard as a killer horror movie that is also a twisted love story in a sense. Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II hopes to shed some light on the terrific people who made the first two Hellraiser movies. There is over 4 hours of interviews to sit down and get a better idea from behind the scenes of the classic horror movies.
