The movie: Hellraiser II, 9 PM - 11, followed by the original Hellraiser, 11 to 1 AM. The prednisone kept me awake, I'd never seen any Hellraiser before so I watched them both, & oh my ******* God!!!!
I've never been so scared, dying of the flu seemed like euthanasia by comparison. The fever dreams of Pinhead & the Cenobites that followed when I finally got to sleep a day later were worse than the film.....the following Hellraisers were really kind of lukewarm by comparison.
British horror, especially the very g*y Clive Barker with all the S&M leather torture paraphernalia in the Hellraiser films, is always scarier than garden variety slasher flick horror. I can honestly say the Hellraiser films scared me worse than any film since the scariest of them all, the original Ridley Scott 1979 Alien.
Ridley Scott is btw an authentic directing genius, oh wait, he's British too....
