Hellraiser ★★★

Another classic that I've just never gelled with. There's quite a bit I do love about the movie. I love how mean and twisted it is, I love a lot of the ideas, I think it blends fantasy and horror better than a lot of its familiars. I love that little monster in the nightmare hallway. Some incredible makeup the whole way through. 

I'm not sure what it is about it that prevents me from liking it more than I do. Maybe it's the fact that it mostly just takes place in a house when I feel like it could get so much stranger. Those scenes just mainly make me want to watch Possession instead.

The Joe Bob comments made me happy to be watching. Worth a revisit every now and then to see if my feelings have changed, though unfortunately this time they have not.
