Hellraiser (1987)

What a freaking masterpiece of horror this is.

I hadn't seen it in a hundred years and I didn't remember it at all, and it blew me away. It not only stands the test of time but it really made us long for the pre-CGI days. So much work and creativity went into those costumes and creature special FX...it was revolting!! Fantastic. Really well done and the story is solid/makes sense.

Also, WOW have so very many things been inspired by this. The Doom computer games, anyone?! When I saw those rotating pillars... o_O Flashbacks! (Quick someone turn on 'god mode'!! *LOL*)

This was my face the entire time watching it:
