Did someone open the Lament Configuration puzzle box in London?  The Cenobites are definitely making their presence known!

London residents have discovered an old VHS copy of the 1987 horror film Hellraiser at the Elephant & Castle bus stop on Old Kent Road.  London resident Tom Wateracre has been documenting the incidents on his storify page and twitter.  The first sighting by Wateracre was in January 2013.  As time went on, the VHS copy became worn from the sun and inclement weather.


On April 2013, Wateracre wrote on his twitter feed that the worn copy was joined by a second VHS copy of the Clive Barker horror film – then both copies disappeared!  Wateracre later discovered a new VHS copy of Hellraiser on the roof of the same bus stop.  In August 2013, Wateracre tweeted the VHS case had opened, revealing an advertisement for Hellbound:  Hellraiser II!  It wasn’t too long after when a second copy appeared on the roof of the bus stop.

In September 2013, another VHS copy of Hellraiser was spotted on the roof of a Newington Green bus stop in London.  Copycat, perhaps?


In early October 2013, the VHS copies disappeared, once again, from the Old Kent Road bus stop before a new copy resurfaced at the end of the month.

The mystery continues!  Just how did these VHS copies end up at these bus stops?  Are the Cenobites sending us a message?  Or could this possibly be linked to Leviathan:  The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound:  Hellraiser II, currently in production in the UK?

Check out a slideshow of the documented incidents and stay up to date with new sightings on Wateracre’s storify page.
