Watch it now
Confined to a mental hospital, young Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) insists her supposedly dead father is stuck in hell, controlled by sadomasochistic demons after being betrayed by his evil, occult-obsessed wife, Julia (Clare Higgins). Few believe Kirsty, except the thrill-seeking Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham), who is intrigued by S&M and the young woman's lurid stories. So when Kirsty and fellow patient Tiffany (Imogen Boorman) head to hell for a rescue, Channard and Julia are close behind.



The screen is composed of large, straight-edge areas of black

and white that rest against each other in a manner that suggests

some kind of pattern, without making a final sense; it is as if

we are too close to something that, could we see it from a

distance, would be clear to us.

These areas shift and change - both their own shape and their

relationship to their neighbors. New patterns are being made,

new solutions found - but they are just beyond our comprehension.

The effect should be aesthetically pleasing but simultaneously

frustrating and, perhaps, a little unsettling.

Shortly into this sequence, and subsequently inter-cut

throughout, we begin to see, in FLASHBACK, the story of

HELLRAISER. Arriving first as very short shock-images, these

brief sections eventually convey to the audience all the

necessary emotional and narrative information they will need to

understand the background to HELLBOUND.

Meanwhile, the black and white shapes are still moving, the

unseen patterns still shifting.

Over this constantly mobile background, the TITLES begin to


As the TITLES unroll, another change comes over the puzzle pieces

behind them. Where before they moved and related only in two

dimensions, gradually we see that they are now claiming depth as

well. The puzzle we are looking at is now a three-dimensional

one. The pieces are now solid blocks of various geometric

shapes, locking together, moving apart, finding their final


Finally, as the TITLES come to their conclusion, the camera pulls

back until we can see clearly what we have been looking at. As

the final piece clicks into positions we see it is THE LAMENT
