Hellraiser Podcast

Happy Halloween! We have a fun and fairly silly chat, going through some listener questions and feedback. The conversation goes in many directions from favourite kill of the series, sex with cenobites and what kind of cenobite we would be (which results in two new inventions, The Seasoner and Razordisk!). We also have a bit of breaking Hellraiser/Clive Barker news and we review the short film The Torturer, written by Paul Kane and starring Paul T. Taylor.
