QUEER HORROR opens the box and unleashes HELLRAISER (1987)! Hosted by Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi, and with a preshow starring Portland drag all-stars, this Halloween night screening is sponsored by Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery. Dress up and trick or treat for your own signed bottle of Carla and Double Mountain's new Call Me By Your Pain Peach Belgian Ale after the show!
Written and directed by out gay creator Clive Barker, HELLRAISER follows Kristy (Ashley Laurence), who just wants to live a normal teenager's life. Unfortunately, her family has just moved into the home of her hedonistic, sadomasochistic, and freshly-skinned Uncle Frank (Sean Chapman), who has entered into a murderous love game with Kristy's wicked stepmother Julia (Clare Higgins), just in time for Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and the cenobites to come and collect what's theirs. A stunning debut based on Barker's novella The Hellbound Heart, HELLRAISER is a gorgeous, gory, and outrageously horny injection of iconic '80s queer horror.
