Hellraiser

 (1987)

Hellraiser Blu-ray offers decent video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Evil Julia helps her lover, Frank, come back to the mortal world from hell. Because Frank has used the Lament Configuration box to taste pleasures outside the normal realm of human sensation, freeing him from hell unleashes Pinhead and a menagerie of demons (cenobites) back unto earth.

For more about Hellraiser and the Hellraiser Blu-ray release, see Hellraiser Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Doug Bradley, Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Sean Chapman, Simon Bamford

Hellraiser Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Image Entertainment's Blu-ray release of Hellraiser isn't exactly on the cutting edge of Blu-ray excellence, but it certainly gets the job done. The big question with this release, however, is how it compares to Anchor Bay's fine and, unfortunately, out-of-print release. While the two are in many ways comparable, the Anchor Bay release nevertheless proves to be the superior version. It's perhaps a hair crisper than the Image release. Fine detail is comparable, with a slight edge again going to Anchor Bay's disc. Still, the Image disc is no slouch. Skin textures are complex, as are brick façades and the many old wooden planks and worn down areas of the house. Gore effects -- dismembered body parts, torn flesh, and various blood-soaked odds and ends -- are highly detailed, and even a closeup of an ashtray full of maggots is gut-churning disgusting thanks to the high level of fine detailing. Colors are fair; the movie has always had something of a slightly washed out look to it, but the palette looks good in context, whether accurate flesh tones, bright blood red, or the earthen browns and blacks seen throughout the house. Image's release also retains a layer of grain. It's a bit wobbly in spots, but excess noise reduction, compression issues, and the like are mostly non-factors. The most noticeable area of separation between the Image and Anchor Bay releases is clearly evident from the start of the movie and right on through to the end. Where Anchor Bay's print was clean, Image's is absolutely littered with black and white -- and even a few green -- speckles and stray vertical lines. They pop up with alarming regularity. It's bad enough to call the Anchor Bay release the clear winner between the two, but not enough, necessarily, to push potential viewers away if this is the only disc available. Image's Hellraiser is no slouch, but it's certainly not Anchor Bay's disc, either.


Hellraiser Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The biggest difference right off the bat between the two competing editions of Hellraiser is Image's ditching of Anchor Bay's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack in favor of another 5.1 lossless offering from DTS. This DTS track is fair; it's not exceptionally robust, clear, or perfectly crisp, but it does yield rather good front stage spacing. Parts of the track play as if slightly muddled; clarity and separation are lacking, but not to a terribly detrimental extent. The track never sounds perfectly full and rich, something achieved to a greater degree by Anchor Bay's Dolby TrueHD track. This presentation is fairly front heavy, though music in various spots -- for instance in chapter four -- does make for a nice, spacious, immersive experience. A few heavier effects, such as a train zipping across the soundstage, plays with a noticeable potency but also a noticeable absence of clarity. Dialogue is strong, center-focused and crisp, never falling apart or getting lost under various music or effects. Much like Image's video presentation, this soundtrack is more than adequate, but it comes up just short of matching the quality of Anchor Bay's offering.
