cool idea, as I only own the original barbones Anchor Bay Hellbound.
It seems funny to release an anniversary edition for a movie sequel, unless we're talking something special like The Godfather II or The Empire Strikes Back.

I might double dip on this one, even though Hellbound is one of my least favorite Hellraiser movies.

They were supposed to release Hellraiser on Blu-Ray this year. Still no news.

And now they're releasing the second one in a new SE. Bah.

When are they gonna get both out on Blu-Ray. I'd love to upgrade, but not to a new DVD.

Damn. I was getting comfortable with the THX Anchor Bay version I have.

Though those interviews make the purchase tempting, I might hold off on double-dipping.

Keep in mind Walmart is still selling the 20th Anniversary Edition for the first Hellraiser for only $9.

Is it just me, but wouldn't it have made more sense to release it this month, when people are shopping for horror films?

I thought the same thing last year when both the Halloween remake and the Ultimate Edition of Evil Dead was released in December...

Q5 is popular with studios because they think consumers will be loaded down with giftcards after the holidays. I usually am.

I asked the Anchor bay guys about this at the last Monster Mania convention. The one guy (I forget his name) asked his coworker and he then kind of arrogantly that they were waiting for the remake to drop next year and then pointed to his head.

I then thanked them for bringing Heathers to Blu-ray and they told me about the limited locker set that had both the Blu and standard dvds. Which, I asked a little while ago in the Blu forum if anyone had heard anything of and then a few days later all the dvd sites came out with the locker set news.

So I am believing that the Blu-ray Hellraiser will come out to fully exploit the marketability of it's remake. And seeing how Anchor Bay has never let us down with their abundance of rereleases, I would take his word to the bank (So to say).

Horror fans are very well known for being very loyal to their respective titles. Bigger titles like The Evil Dead, Halloween or Hellraiser can really be released at any time of year and they'll make Anchor Bay money.

Though it does make sense to release them around October, when I worked at Best Buy, I didn't see any more people coming in around this time and buying horror films than at any other time during the year. They only this would happen is when we would have a big circular sale. Other than that, it wasn't as though the horror titles were flying out of the door. And I worked at the Besy Buy in Monroeville PA, which is one of the larger Best Buy's in their whole company.

And as stated above, the "Holiday" seasons will push sales, not to mention the people wanting to spend their Christmas money/gift cards.

Oh I understand that people have gift cards to burn after the holidays. I guess I'm just basing it on my experiences that:

1) While certain horror movies, I can watch all year round, I tend to only be on the lookout for others around this time frame, when I tend to watch them the most.

2) I've experienced the opposite, Katja, working at FYE. Usually, we have more people coming in specifically looking for horror titles than we do other times of the year. Hell, I think we've sold more copies of the remake of Prom Night so far this month than we did when it was first released.

Instead, I find we have copies of Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story flying off the shelves during the holiday season over catalog horror titles.

I really like the original Hellraiser, but the sequel left me unsatisfied. There's a lot of problems with it in my opinion. Peter Atkins turned cenobites into usual movie monsters (Even more so in parts 3 and 4). I'm not going to list all complaints here, but believe me I have a lot.
I prefer 5 & 7 over 2. Ready to be stoned now.

I would assume it would be uncut, nearly all video versions here in the states have been the uncut version. As for the extras, I'm glad that Anchor Bay didn't make the Lamentation UK Box set obsolete, Anchor Bay didn't include the second Director/writer commentary track - which is exclusive to said edition.

I would assume the trilogy as been seen in HiDef on MonstersHD. The first film is making it's hidef premier on HDNet Movies the beginning of next month.

Hmm, I already have the OOP Limited Edition Hellraiser 1 & 2 tin from Anchor Bay. I may pick this up, but I passed on the Anniversary Edition for #1.

I only own the version that came with the "Hellraiser" tin so I might be tempted to upgrade... however, I might be more tempted if this were released on Blu-ray as well. I'm a little surprised at Doug Bradley's lack of involvement in this release considering he's been in every Hellraiser movie.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hellbound's my favorite Hellraiser movie, thanks to the dark imagery, the Channard character and Christopher Young's amazing score (which should have been included as a 5.1 isolated track, IMHO).

Hellbound is my favourite among Hellraiser series, but the only reason for me to buy this one would be a desire to collect all of them Anchor Bay collection releases... As I already have the Lament Box edition, I think I'd better wait for Hellbound on BD.
