Lemarchand's Box - Other Boxes

Other Boxes

Other Lemarchand boxes appear throughout the Hellraiser film series. Dr. Channard is depicted as a collector in Hellbound: Hellraiser II; he has several on display in his study. The demon princess Angelique is narrated to have created several in Hellraiser: Bloodline. The Host in Hellraiser: Hellworld also possesses several. Most of the boxes seen in the films are not named or used onscreen, so their powers—if any—are unknown.

At the end of Bloodline, it turns out that the station is a giant puzzle box, designed to produce and contain the "Infinite Light" phenomenon and act as a means of either destroying the Cenobites, or trapping them forever.

At the end of The Hellbound Heart, Kirsty wonders if there are other puzzles that might offer access to paradise instead of hell.

The 2012 film The Cabin in the Woods initially homages Hellraiser by showing a similar spherical puzzle box in an early scene, as one of the many items that might decide which monster plagues the main character. Later, the puzzle box is shown in the hands of a Pinhead-like monster.

Famous quotes containing the word boxes:

    Always polite, fastidiously dressed in a linen duster and mask, he used to leave behind facetious rhymes signed “Black Bart, Po—8,” in mail and express boxes after he had finished rifling them.
    —For the State of California, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.
    Eleonora Duse (1859–1924)
