God, i loved this. A character-driven love letter to science-fiction radio plays and the Twilight Zone. The best moments in the whole film are just listening to someone tell an amazing story, exactly as it would be on the radio.
A classic. The effects are astounding for how much money i imagine they had to make this. The fact that we don't see Pinhead and the cenobites until an hour and 5 minutes or so into a 90 minute film, and that it works better for it, is incredible.
