You know when a franchise has 10 freaking parts, it’s bound to be something special. And ‘Hellraiser’ is just that and more.

In case you have never heard about it before, ‘Hellraiser’ is a British horror franchise that consists of ten films, a series of books and various comic books. The franchise is based on the novella ‘The Hellbound Heart’ by English author Clive Barker.

Before you dismiss it as simply any other book adaptation, let us tell you the storyline of the series. We promise, it’ll get you hooked.

The plot focuses on a remarkable box that opens a gateway to an alternate dimension of the Cenobites, basically human monsters who harvest human souls to torture in sadomasochistic experiments. No, we are not Shashi Tharoor-ing you.  Sadomasochistic essentially means giving or receiving pleasure from acts involving the receipt or infliction of pain or humiliation. It also includes sexual gratification.

The movie would revolve around three detectives, Sean Carter, David Carter, and Christine Egerton who are on a mission to find a gruesome serial killer terrorizing the city. And no points for guessing that while doing so, they discover a deeper threat that does not belong to this world.

Obviously, the movie could not be complete without Pinhead, the leader of the Cenobites (those otherworldly creatures). And one look at him is enough to make you hide under the bed.

The trailer isn’t for those with weak hearts as it consists some horrific and ultra-violent visuals. But in case you prefer movies like ‘Saw’, you might be able to handle it.

Have a look at it yourself:

‘Hellraiser: Judgment’ stars Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulager, Mike Jay Regan, and Diane Goldner, and includes an appearance from Heather Langenkamp.  Lionsgate has slated the movie for a home video release on February 13th. It’ll be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand.
