Join us on a journey through the next stage of our retrospective series on the Hellraiser franchise on this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast!

Following in the footsteps of Dante's trip through the domains of the dead in the Divine Comedy, we continue our Hellraiser retrospective series by visiting Purgatory and diving into three more Hellraiser movies: Inferno, Bloodline, and Hell on Earth.

Corpse Club co-hosts Bryan Christopher and Jonathan James are joined by special guest Joe Lipsett (co-host of the Horror Queers podcast), who helps guide us through Purgatory as we discuss this trio of Hellraiser films, including their stories of deadly pleasure and eternal pain, the memorable performances by Doug Bradley as Pinhead, and the creative direction by filmmakers Scott Derrickson, Kevin Yagher, and Anthony Hickox.

This is the second part of our Hellraiser retrospective, as we'll dive into Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II on our Heaven episode. So, whether you've seen the entire Hellraiser franchise or you're experiencing the sights it has to show you for the first time, join us as we raise some hell of our own and reflect on the Purgatory stage of the Hellraiser films on this episode of Daily Dead's official podcast!

  • Derek Anderson
    About the Author - Derek Anderson

    Raised on a steady diet of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Derek has been fascinated with fear since he first saw ForeverWare being used on an episode of Eerie, Indiana.

    When he’s not writing about horror as the Senior News Reporter for Daily Dead, Derek can be found daydreaming about the Santa Carla Boardwalk from The Lost Boys or reading Stephen King and Brian Keene novels.
