Hellraiser: Deader- Amy Klein is a journalist (with a comical smoking habit) and has been sent to Bucharest after watching video tape about a resurrection cult called the Deaders. The leader of this cult (whose name is Winter) has members kill themselves and then he brings them back to life.
Once in Bucharest (which is fun to say) Amy tracks down the video owner/mailer and finds her…of course dead and holding that familiar gold puzzle box we know and love! She makes sure to open the box, because who wouldn’t?!This starts the waking dream bit that is ever so popular. Is this all real or not? You know that old song and dance.
Amy eventually find the Deaders and Winter. Who is an ancient relative of the original puzzle box maker. This means he has the ability to bring people back to life? Sure. Whatever. This Deader cult is also annoying the cenobites as the people dying are not going to hell for his pleasure. Pinhead wants Amy to fix the problem so he can go being able to play with the Deaders who have cheated death. Whatever will Amy Klein do?

|Probably my favorite of these three!|
The Maggot Lords could not have come out a better time! These guys are just bonkers! They are equal parts gross and imposing. How could I not think them awesome!?
While I'm not a huge fan of the Nurgle Knights and their ridiculous prices, I do lobe the maggot lords.
They are crazy big sculpts and add a lot of character to an already gross fun army. Besides tongue belly and nurgling belly, I'm not a super fan of these guys.
|Way too many tentacles for a follwer of Nurgle. this guy belongs in the Tzeencth/Hentai stable.|

|Pinhead is in the matrix, and better than Matrix 2|
Hellraiser: Hellworld- I had no idea Pinhead and the crew had turned to multiplayer online games. Who knew? This is the basis for more wacky cenobite adventures in Hellraiser: Hellworld.
Alright the short and skinny of this film is…..circle of six friends playing Hellraiser-ish video game. One friend way too addicted and kills himself. Now the main four riends mourn and one friend blames then. Who cares and three of the remaining five keep playing the game. Jump ahead two years and the same friends are still playing, minus blonde girl and finger of shame guy who blames them for death of buddy. Wait what is this? Everyone gets invited to video game party at creepy old house/looney bin! Cue crazy drunk dance and sexy party at looney bin house. Hey everyone Lance Henricksen is the host of the party and is super creepy (like he always is). Even the finger of shame guy is there for a meet-cute with some rando piece of tail. While at this party the host (creepy Lance) shows the group around. Strange he ignored everyone else. Creepy house is creepy. Now start the seeing stuff, creepy visions, lost people, doom, scary noises, blood, cenobites and eventual death of three of the five friends. Yet nobody at the party seems to notice. Hmmm….that is strange. Cut to chase now and the party host is the dad of the suicide friend. He has drugged the kiddos and actually buried them alive and has been messing with them. See there were no cenobites and this is all a father’s revenge scheme. Eventually two of the five are saved by cops who received an anonymous tip from the ghost of suicide guy.
Meanwhile the host/dad is safe and sound going through his son’s belongings. Wait…he finds that fancy fun box we all know and love. He of course solves it and here comes Pinhead and crew to punish him.
|The cast looking lame and bored, just like the film!|

Hellraiser: Hellseeker- Trevor is a shady businessman (is everyone in the Hellraiser universe shady?) who survives a car accident that apparently kills his wife Kirsty. Hmmm…. she looks mighty familiar. Trevor drives the car into a bridge (and doesn’t care. “I crashed my car into a bridge, I watched, I let it burn.” That song is my jam!) and it plunges into the river below along with his wife. Trevor survives, but where is the body of his wife?
Jump ahead a month and Trevor has amnesia and is in the hospital. Trevor now is the prime suspect in a murder case, is juggling three women (besides his wife) cannot tell fantasy from reality and there is this familiar puzzle box in his possession. That means…yup he is going to fiddle with and open the box. Now we get Pinhead showing Trevor that his wife is alive and that he is a philanderer, liar and general scumbag. So….Trevor tries to save his own skin by trading Kirsty’s soul for his. This is what lead to the car crash in the beginning.

Hellraiser: Inferno- A series of grisly and ritualistic murders are occurring and Joseph Thorne (a pretty shady police detective) is on the case. A puzzle box is found and of course officer Joseph solves it. I guess that by opening this box it will help him solve the case? This leads him down a path to the killer who is known as “The Engineer.” This “Engineer” in turn kidnaps a kid, begins leaving kid fingers behind at crime scenes, kills off Joseph’s friends and taunts him at every turn. This drives Joe a bit nutty. He starts seeing demons, is subjected to brutal physical and psychological torments.

A few hours out from the premiere of this season of The Walking Dead. For the first time in the run of this show I am not super excited about it. Sure I'll watch and enjoy the squishy zombies, but I am just not excited about anything else.
Could this be the end of me caring about Rick and his buddies? Have all the changes between the comic and the show finally gotten to me?
Here is hoping what drew me into the show season one comes back because I love me some zombie stuff. I just am very meh! with this zombie stuff right now.

Lords of Salem- Is a spooky tale about witch revenge. Well I think that is what I took away from this.
The film tells a story about a coven that is caught and torture killed by a witch hunter and his crew. Then jump ahead to modern times and Heidi, a radio DJ, is sent a box containing a record -- a "gift from the Lords." What sounds like a really awful band is this chanting and sound played backwards I guess. Anyway, this record sound/noise triggers trippy dreams and violent flashbacks. These are either about the violent past of the town or have Heidi seeing all sorts of nonsense. Add in a trio of ladies in her apartment who have little tea time gatherings and must be up to no good. Heidi seems to be being groomed for something greater as the movie goes along. There is a guy who studies the whole Salem witch trials and witch hunters who seems to be unraveling the nonsense around the Lords and their album of noise. Eventually the plan of “The Lords” and the trio of tea time women comes to fruition, I guess. Heidi transcends into some kind of Christ-like uber witch and a ton of the ladies in town go kill crazy and off others themselves or both.
