"…Wild visuals and amusingly uninhibited performances….[The two films together] possess a power…"
Two rare films made by Clive Barker in the 70's feature a fearsome glimpse into the horror movie auteur's earliest inspirations. Restored under the director's supervision and accompanied by filmed interviews with Barker, Bradley (aka HELLRAISER'S "Pinhead"), and other key players. Unedited and silent.
