some stories were good, other stories didnt excite me enough to care about what happened.Since it's a collection,all stories are done by different artists (I think) so the artwork is different too which I liked.

A bit dated, but this is still a satisfying and creepy collection.

I usually dont like reading a book series out of order (for fear that I might miss out on valuable character information/ backstory) but I couldnt find the first collection and continued on.

This particular version is broken down into 10 seperate stories:

- Canons Of Pain
- Razing Hell pts 1-3
- Songs Of Metal And Flesh
- The Pleasures of Deception
- Cenobite
- Old Wives' Tale
- Fury
- The Blood Of A Poet
- Sheddim
- Of Love, Cats, And Curiosity

As far as this whole collection is concered it was a hit or mi

Clive Barker is one of horror's milestones. He brought us to Hell & back & that's some bad time for the folks "downstairs". This collection is unevenly brought together, but nonetheless as amazingly horrifiying as the first collection. The Cenobites are some of THE creepiest creatures in horror history. The art is disgustingly awesome, showing us all the gruesome tortures of Hell. My favorite element of the Hellraiser series is also probly everyone else's as well...Pinhead, of course!! T ...more

Worthwhile for fans of the series but an uneven collection. The better stories are fairly good and there is some good artwork. The weaker are pretty bad, and the the proportion is such that I almost gave a 2-star rating. It's a tough mythology to write for despite the compelling universe Barker established. If anything, the Cenobites seem much to easily defeated in this collection, and the stories at times too hopeful.

I really haven't "read" this yet, but I flipped throught the pages of it, read some parts and it was really really good!
I am trying to find the first part and I will read both of them after watching the movies too! I can't wait!
