We have such sights to show you (and sounds because it’s a podcast after all). Welcome all to the final episode in our Clive Barker series for the month of October! Boy oh boy do we have a Halloween treat for you! Not only are we discussing the Barker seminal classic Hellraiser; but we are also joined by the one and only Andy Heller.

So sit back, break out your puzzle box, and enjoy our discussion on Hellraiser.

Hellraiser is a 1987 horror film written and directed by Clive Barker. The film is an adaptation of The Hellbound Heart, written by Barker. The soap operatic film follows Julia, a housewife who previously had an affair with her husband’s brother Frank. When Frank seeks the deepest depths of pain and pleasure he is torn apart by a group of Cenobites. In order to be raised from the dead, Julia helps Frank feast on the flesh of others to become mortal once again.
