The Essence of Camp Episode 39: HELLRAISER

We'll tear your soul apart!

Schlocktober continues on the Essence of Camp, as we tackle Clive Barker’s 1987 directorial debut Hellraiser. In this episode, David discusses the finer points of Spanish horror, I try (and fail) to Monday morning quarterback some of Barker’s directorial choices, and special guest Pinhead drops by to discuss the upper reaches of camp cinema.

Next week, Schlocktober goes international as we tackle Mystics in Bali.

  • I like to think of HELLRAISER as the world’s kinkiest remake of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS.
