Latest “Anchor Bay Collection” Release Rips Into DVD October 23rd

BURBANK, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment, the leader in classic horror DVD, has such sights to show you! Just in time for all good Cenobites to celebrate Halloween…On October 23rd, fans of Clive Barker (Candyman, “Masters of Horror: Haeckel’s Tale”, “Masters of Horror: Valerie on the Stairs”) can pin their hopes on the demonic classic Hellraiser, which will be released as a 20th Anniversary Edition DVD under the critically acclaimed “Anchor Bay Collection” banner. Following the footsteps of previous “Anchor Bay Collection” releases, Hellraiser has been optimized for the ultimate home entertainment presentation and stuffed with enough bonus features to fill several puzzle boxes – including all-new cast & crew interviews! SRP is a less-than-sadistic $24.97 and pre-book is September 20th.

Starring Sean Chapman (A Mighty Heart), Andrew Robinson (Dirty Harry, “JAG”, “Without a Trace”), (Clare Higgins, Mrs. Palfrey At The Claremont) and Ashley Laurence (Lightning Bug, “ER”), Clive Barker’s 1987 directorial debut introduced film audiences to a new kind of monster – the sadistic Cenobites. The Cenobite leader, Pinhead (Doug Bradley), instantly became a horror icon, whispered in the same breath as Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. Forever linked with a vision of inescapable torment, Pinhead and his otherworldly minions crossed the border from Hell to Earth, wreaking havoc on their terrible mission. To date, Hellraiser has spawned six sequels, and appeared on numerous international greatest-horror-films-of-all-time lists, including No. 19 on Bravo’s “100 Scariest Movie Moments.”

For fans that have already seen this cinematic landmark of stylish horror and unearthly sadomasochism, the Hellraiser: 20th Anniversary Edition DVD is a must for their collections. For those who are new to Pinhead and his minions, now is the time to let them get their hooks into you!

Like previous “Anchor Bay Collection” DVDs, Hellraiser: 20th Anniversary Edition comes fleshed out with new tantalizing bonus features including:

* ‘Mr. Cotton, I Presume?’ – An Interview with Star Andrew Robinson – NEW
