A new Hellraiser movie is on the way – this time for real, after years of false starts and production rumours. We even have a brand new Pinhead cast. There’s also a miniature revival of the series that is quietly taking place in the asymmetrical horror survival game Dead By Daylight, which recently introduced Pinhead and Chatterer (via cosmetics) as playable killers. It’s an exciting (and terrifying) time to be a Hellraiser fan.
It’s also almost Halloween, making it the perfect time to take a closer look at the Hellraiser franchise as a whole. There are… well, a lot of movies. 10 in all, dating back to 1987, and while many of them are… not great, to say the least, they all hold a special place in the hearts of many a horror fan. Sure, Pinhead and the Cenobites may not have the same ubiquity as someone like Michael Myers or Jason, but what they lack in fame they make up for in sheer originality. After all, how many franchise movie monsters are, ostensibly, occasionally, franchise movie heroes. Or at least franchise movie antiheroes. Either way, the Hellraiser franchise is a wild ride worth taking the time to explore.
So we dived into the murky, infernal waters and took a closer look at all 10 Hellraiser movies and ranked them from the very best to the ones you better watch as a joke.
