If you are a fan of the Barker’s Hellraiser series, this is a must have. We can all agree that series went straight to (video) Hell after the initial trilogy. That’s what happens when you amend existing scripts to try and expand a Mythos. So grab this pure set and enjoy, even if it was not meant for your eyes!
