Enjoy the pleasure and pain of paradise as we wrap up 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 conclude our Hellraiser retrospective series by visiting the "Heaven" of the fiery franchise: Clive Barker's Hellraiser and Tony Randel's Hellbound: Hellraiser II.
Corpse Club co-hosts Bryan Christopher and Jonathan James are once again joined by special guests Joe Lipsett (co-host of the Horror Queers podcast) and Annie Rose Malamet (host of the Girls, Guts, & Giallo podcast), who help guide us through true paradise as we discuss the first two Hellraiser films, including their mind-searing portrayals of pleasurable pain, their unforgettable practical effects, and the introductions of Doug Bradley's iconic character Pinhead and Ashley Laurence as the ever-resourceful Kirsty Cotton.
So, whether you've summoned Cenobites before or you've never laid eyes on the Lament Configuration, join us as we raise some hell and reflect on the Heaven stage of the Hellraiser films in this final installment of our Hellraiser retrospective series!
