I am currently watching the entire Hellraiser series from the start. Currently finished Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth.

I can't believe how good these films are. The first one is a classic of course and the series kind of loses steam with each sequel but I never get tired of seeing Pinhead and his team.

I watched them long time ago when they were braodcasted on Star movies back in early 2000 I think. After watching hellraiser 1/2/3 just stop at hellraiser 4 bloodline. I never bothered with any other hellraiser movie after that(a little spoiler but hellraiser 4 is kind of an origin story as well as finisher for the series).

Those are heavily censored. I suggest watching elsewhere for the uncensored ones.

The rest of them are not that good, I just watch them for completeness. Though the last one Hellraiser: Judgement has somewhat better reviews.

Yes but I also got the uncensored versions later. If you haven't seen Hellraiser Bloodline yet then watch it, chances are you will not want to watch later hellraiser movies(they all are/will be its prequels in a sense unless they reboot the series).

Yeah, I watched it. Pretty bad acting overall. But still I never get tired of watching Pinhead rip people apart.

The thing is that Clive Barker isn't involved much in the later movies, so the rights holders just make whatever story they feel like making. Even the original actor of Pinhead does not reprise his role in the last few movies.

I actually don't bother with prequels/spinoffs unless they are exceptional(one such example was Rogue One). For me Hellraiser series ended with Bloodline & unless they reboot the series(in a good way) I see no point in seeing any of the later movies which are all prequels/spinoffs(the same reason I haven't watched fantastic beasts & its sequel).

As above, so below 7.5/10
(Netflix)

Found footage horror. Check it out, liked it very much.
Holy shit what a movie. I just now finished watching it. Thanks man for suggesting this! IMDB rating doesn't do justice to the movie.
It triggered so many phobias like :
getting stuck in tight dark spaces, no light or under water and also no light, weird sounds in dark! few more which I can't remember. Then there was this hell creatures and the burning car scene.

Yesterday I watched Color Out Of Space. It's actually much better than I expected. It captures the cosmic horror really good and there are numerous references to Lovecraft's works since it is set in the fictional Arkham county from the Lovecraft works and cities like Innsmouth, Dunwich, etc are also mentioned.

The problem however is that most of the characters are very two-dimensional but overall the movie is a really trippy experience.

Not yet. Perhaps I will watch it today or tomorrow.

Is there any site where you can track movies to watch? Something like Goodreads but for movies?
I don't but seen many people using tract.tv in their sig on other forums(it is paid feature though).
