Hellraiser A Hell Of A World

Before watching the new Hellraiser series that looks absolutely fantastic, I wanted to watch the ten movies from the iconic franchise. One strangely stood out, to my surprise. It’s one everyone totally forgot about or doesn’t even know exists!

This is an in-depth review of the forgotten movie Hellraiser Hellworld from 2005. I rewatched the entire movie franchise and came out with subjects related to the plot of the Hellworld movie or eighth instalment. If you plan on watching the movie, do not keep reading this article, as it might ruin it for you.

This is all personal, and I respect everyone’s view of the movie and the Hellraiser franchise. Also, this is a subjective article and an opinion of the movie.

Mainstream Horror Vs. Indie Horror

When we think about horror movies or series, we only think about the big screen names. But forced to be inside had me discover gems behind the curtains.

According To The Critiques

Mainstream vs. indie horror is a fair question. If we are talking about horror movies, titles like Halloween and Friday the 13th comes to mind. We can go older with The Exorcist and Psycho. It goes back to the 30s with Dracula and Frankenstein.

Horror is a genre that has been snubbed over the years, over decades! The general public sees horror as a genre without paying attention to all the subgenres. Horror is the tip of the iceberg, it’s what we see but everything underneath are the subgenres.

The Ups And Downs Of Found-Footage

My favorite horror movie genre is found footage. It’s like I can’t get enough of that style, and I know what many people think, it’s cheap, and it’s cheesy and bad. But, many underrated movies are gaining popularity in the genre. Here are some!

The Found Footage Debate

Many of us believe that the found footage style began with The Blair Witch Project in 1999. Then you have those who argue that Cannibal Holocaust from 1980 is the first of its kind. However, maybe some of us were wrong. The ups and downs of found-footage started in the new millennium for sure!

*** Before we go any further, let’s remind ourselves of a great tool to avoid trauma while watching horror movies: Does The Dog Die ***

While Cannibal Holocaust was part found footage, it wasn’t all found footage. However, maybe they were the first to exploit the marketing method of asking their actors to hide to reinforce the “true story” part. The director was also dragged to court and had to pay a fee for animal cruelty.

The Worst Night Terror Ever Told

It is Halloween, and what is it without a good horror story? Even better when it turns out to be real. In some ways.

Living With Night Terrors

This is it, the worst night terror ever told.

It all started when I was four years old—or so I can remember. I would have quite detailed nightmares and real to the touch it had me not wanting to sleep. Later, my grandparents raised me.

My mother even revealed to me that I would not want to sleep in daycare. I was afraid I would not wake up.
