    Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II are both among my favorite films, period. It's a hard choice to choose between them, but there's something about Hellbound that makes me choose it by a millionth of 1 percent.

    I voted Hellraiser, though I do agree that the sequel is just as good. Hellraiser has more of a mystery to it I think.
    I know Hellbound had some rushed script re-writes (which is why there are a few plot holes), but it still managed to hold up and be an interesting exploration into the hellish world of the Cenobites.

    Agreed.
    It's nice to see some Hell on Earth love. It's a fun sequel. I fell asleep on Hellworld. Never gave it a second chance.

    "Deader" has got to be the most worser subtitle in film history.

    The original,it's the most cohesive entry in my opinion and it established the template.Great score.

    Agreed, though the film itself is one of the better DTV sequels in the franchise.

    Number 1. Its beautiful. Hellbound has more flaws but I still think its great and in fact these two movies are among my fav. of all time and they got me started in horror back in the good ol' days of VHS (I used to rent them both at the same time every 3 years or so).
    I still kinda enjoy part 3 and IV totally jumped the shark (is that a valid term for movies, or just applies to tv shows?) going to space. Part 5 was a nice try to go back to the darkness of the cenobites' world, I thought it was decent and you can tell the people envolved in the making wanted to be respectful and return a serious tone to the franchise. The other ones, I havent seen them yet, and being honest i'm a little afraid they might suck too much, so i wont see them.

    To brokenads: I think there's a widescreen version of 3 available, is R1 from Paramount. There are other widescreens but their aspect ratio is not right, they're open matte and cropped to 1.78:1 (the original AR is 1.85:1).

    Hellbound is an easy pick for me but the original is amazing.

    after the cinematic tea-bagging i received from hellraiser: inferno, i resolved to have nothing more to do with the ongoing entries. i haven't seen any of the last three. but aren't they all following the same ass-tastic template of inferno? some dick/cunt goes through life being shitty to everyone and sees slightly twisted shit going on around them until at the end pinhead shows up to wax poetic and they realize that when they took out the garbage at the beginning of the film they accidentally slipped on a banana peal and they've actually been dead the whole time...bum-bum-buuuuuum.


    oh. and hellraiser rocks my world.

    I enjoy most of the series, but I'll give this to Hellbound.

    The first couple are the best, so yes you are indeed missing out.

    If you've only seen part 5, then you're indeed missing out. Watch them in order from 1-4. Part 5 really doesn't even have much to do with the Hellraiser mythos so to speak. It's perfectly understandable why you didn't like that one much.

    If you like a fairly solid gore more then buy it. If your not sure then give it a rent. Personally I think the first two should be in every horror fans collection.

    The first two are really good. I haven't seen the last 3, but all the others suck IMO.

    First is my favorite.
