Rating: May contain scenes of violence too disturbing for some viewers. (Hellraiser movies are rated R)

V/N: This was a tough pairing to vid, but I think I got the essence of what draws me to it. How the real world keeps letting Kirsty down and how Pinhead becomes a figure in her life she can count on unlike the many men in her life. And on the hand how Kirsty's games seem to excite Pinhead and how luring her becomes the ultimate prize for him. I believe there is a romantic element to them, in a quite unconventional way (what would 'love' even be for a cenobyte?).
Current Mood: amused

This was really fascinating & original! I never expected to see a Hellraiser vid. I've never seen the movies, but now you've made me want to track them down. Great job!

Hey thanks! I don't quite know how well the vid would play to someone who isn't familiar with the context so I'm glad you liked it. ;)

I hope you like the Hellraiser movies when/if you choose to try them out. I recommend watching the first two - after that they become regular slasher types and even 6 is seriously flawed even when we finally get Kirsty back. ;D

Don't judge, but I sort of maybe found Pinhead possibly vaguely sexy when I watched the first film many years ago, so I really appreciate this vid!

I'm going to confess too: I kinda find him vaguely sexy as well ;) Seeing how the movieverse is constructed around him, it is easy to start seeing him as a sort of 'antihero' and somewhat likable personality. The whole Kirsty/Pinhead pairing seems surprisingly popular among Hellraiser fans, but I'm still surprised that I've actually gotten views on this video. Many thanks for making my day ;D

This vid is so amazing and awesome. Thank you so much for sharing this. It's such a fascinating look at these two and really sold me on the pairing. Now I want to marathon the whole thing again.

Hey thanks! Always great to see more Hellraiser fans. And there is way too little love for Pinhead/Kirsty ;D

You know, I really should watch these movies --- I don't think we ever watched them all you know and I've totally forgotten everything from the one/s we did watch. Also, love the video + all those familiar faces I spotted, ah :D

We have watched the ones that count: I, II and VI. Actually I remember I did a marathon with you, but by the time we got to VI you had a bad hangover from celebrating Annika's birthday. ;)

The rest is mainly ok (III) and bad (pretty much everything else), so proceed at your own discression.

Yes, I remember that marathon! Ah, lovely :D

I don't ship them in a very conventional sense. It's a very twisted and destructive relationship, but ever since seeing VI, I'm sure Pinhead has a certain kind of an obsession with her. So in a traditional sexual way, not as much, but in a twisted mental way, yes.

Glad you enjoyed the video. I sent you a download link ;)
