[Note: Having been working as a film journalist and reviewer, John Carpenter (who I interviewed in Hollywood in 1986 while he was finishing up Big Trouble in Little China at Twentieth Century-Fox) suggested that I try my hand being a Unit Publicist. Thanks to Clive Barker and producer Christopher Figg, I got my start on one of the most iconic horror films of the 1980s. The great thing was that it was filmed on location in North London, so I only had to travel two stops on the Underground to be on set each morning! I think at the time we revolutionised how low-budget horror films should be promoted while still in production. The young journalist I used to help conduct some of the EPK interviews was . . . Neil Gaiman! I was also around for the re-shoots of the "Birth of Frank" sequence sometime after principal photography was completed.

From beyond the Outer Darkness, from the blackest corners of a family's past, from the nightmarish realm of the imagination comes Hellraiser. When Frank Cotton solves the mystery of a Chinese puzzle box he enters the world of the Cenobites. A world where these cruel sadists thrive on ripped flesh, blood and flayed muscle. Later, restored to life by the blood of his brother Larry, Frank rises half-formed from a pool of slime. When Larry's wife agrees to provide the human meat he needs to put flesh on his bones, the spills, chills and thrills are just beginning. Written and directed by the brilliant Clive Barker, Hellraiser is a film that cannot be ignored.
