* CompleteMonster: Frank Cotton, who also appears in the second film, was a cruel [[TheHedonist hedonist]] before he was taken by the Cenobites. After his escape, he shows no remorse in murdering innocent people to drain them of their vital fluids to repair himself. When his niece Kirsty Cotton finds him, [[EvilUncle he tries to rape her]]. He also [[CainAndAbel murders his own brother]] and wears his skin as a disguise; Frank also murders his accomplice and lover Julia with no remorse. When he's taken by the Cenobites again, Frank languishes in a private hell and sends Kirsty letters begging for help, pretending to be her father so she'll come to save him, solely so [[VillainousIncest he can keep her]] as a SexSlave.

** [[CardCarryingVillain Julia Cotton]] is Kirsty's WickedStepmother who, while she first seems regretful at feeding other men to Frank and refuses to kill her husband, later shows no problem with doing either, and helps kill her husband so Frank can [[GenuineHumanHide wear his skin]]. She is also perfectly willing to let Frank rape her own stepdaughter, Kirsty. After she is revived, shedding any possible redeeming qualities she had along the way, she gleefully drains people at a mental hospital of their life while relishing in their pain and suffering to restore herself. She [[UngratefulBastard feeds her rescuer]] Dr. Channard to her master to turn him into a Cenobite, and tries to kill her stepdaughter and an innocent, mentally handicapped [[WouldHurtAChild girl]] as well. When she encounters Frank again, she shows no hesitation in brutally murdering him, showing she's cast off any human attachment.

* EvilIsSexy: You wouldn't think so about Pinhead, would you? But the mounds of fan mail Doug Bradley gets from adoring women say otherwise.

** While not good in an heroic sense, punishing evildoers like Winter and The Host is hard to describe as anything but just.

** Possibly an example of TheArtifact, as the female Cenobite was the leader in the book.



** One interesting aversion is that ''Inferno'' and ''Hellseeker'' operate on similar formulas. Whichever one the person sees first might make them favor that one over the other. ''Inferno'' precedes ''Hellseeker'' historically, but given the later sequels don't number anymore, plenty of people may not have watched in order.

* EvilIsCool: Pinhead is the face of the ''Hellraiser'' series. Also, the other Cenobites who appears throughout the franchise also qualify, mainly due to their and Pinhead's unique physical appearances and creative supernatural kills.

* FetishFuel: If you're into S&M, the entire series reads as this. The design of the Cenobites is even inspired by visits Clive Barker payed to S&M clubs.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The first two films are worth watching. The others are all over the place, with Hell on Earth, Bloodlines, and Inferno being the only generally-well-liked ones.
