About

FILMS INCLUDE:

Hellbound: Hellraiser 2

(Tony Randel, United Kingdom, 1988, 1h 37min, R, 35mm)
Synopsis: Released just a year after writer/director Clive Barker’s instantly iconic horror classic, Hellbound: Hellraiser II is one of those very rare sequels that approaches (and perhaps, at times, even surpasses) the quality and intensity of the original. Written by Barker’s friend and collaborator Peter Atkins, and directed by American filmmaker Tony Randel, the movie maintains the stylish, dark fantasy imagery of its predecessor and expands on the first film’s mythology. Picking up almost immediately after the conclusion of Hellraiser, Hellbound finds protagonist Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) hospitalized after losing her entire family to the demonic denizens of Hell known as the Cenobites. Unfortunately, she finds herself under the care of the sadistic Doctor Channard (Kenneth Cranham), whose penchant for the occult once again opens the gateway to Hell, allowing Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and his gang of mutilated masochists to seek vengeance against those who have escaped their clutches.

Hellbound is something of a “Holy Grail” for Exhumed Films: ever since its creation in 1997, they have been searching continuously and desperately across the entire globe for a print of the movie to no avail.  This screening of a mint-condition, 35mm print – generously on loan from the personal collection of director Tony Randel (!) – is the culmination of decades of cinematic detective work.

Rawhead Rex

(Geroge Pavlou, United Kingdom, 1986, 1h 29min, R, 35mm)
Synopsis:
Despite
the fact that Clive Barker wrote the screenplay himself (which was adapted from his own short story), Clive Barker does not consider Rawhead Rex to be the finest cinematic adaptation of his work. Nevertheless, there is an undeniable charm and audacity to the film, due primarily to the gruesome antics of the titular creature. The story centers on a writer (David Dukes) who has brought his family with him to the Irish countryside while he researches religious artifacts. When a bolt of lightning accidentally disrupts an ancient burial stone, the long dormant Pagan monster-god Rawhead Rex returns to wreak havoc on mankind. If watching a massive monster decapitate, eviscerate, and urinate–all while decked out in a full-leather heavy metal bodysuit–is your idea of a good time, then this is the movie for you. Don’t miss your opportunity to see this rarely screened, cult classic projected from a 35mm print!
