You can buy all four Hellraiser films in glorious 4K in a brand-new box set from Arrow films. It’s aptly titled Hellraiser: Quartet of Torment. Details here!
The 1980s were the golden era for horror and it doesn’t get much better than Clive Barker’s Hellraiser films. They were delightfully twisted, suitably gory and even a little sexy and you can soon own the first four films in the franchise on marvellous 4K.
Arrow Films have restored Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth and Hellraiser: Bloodline from their original camera negatives. The gorgeous box set comes with a plethora of bonus features which should please fans.
The franchise recently got a reboot of sorts, but the film was unceremoniously dumped on streaming, but thankfully, it’s available to buy on disc, albeit only on DVD. The original Hellraiser also enjoyed a short stint back in cinemas earlier this summer,
Hellraiser: Quartet of Torment is released on 23 October, but you can pre-order it here if you so wish. It’ll set you back £59.99, but as said, there is an extensive amount of special features.
