Before we go any further….. no, twisting this box around will NOT summon BDSM demons to give you a ‘gift of sensation’. I couldn’t quite work out how to make this into a Transformer so if you’re into that sort of thing (hey, I don’t judge, you do you) this might not be the trinket box for you…
I think by now you’ve probably pretty much worked out where this is coming from. The Hellraiser movies went from some of the classic horror movies of all time to ones which genuinely made you wish the Cenobites would come and rip your eyes out so you wouldn’t have to endure the torture of watching them. The centrepiece of those movies was a puzzle-box called the Lament Configuration which, when solved would summon grotesque demons from their home dimension of The Labyrinth to offer the owner of the box their heart’s desire. It usually, of course, all went downhill from there to where the ‘sensation’ would involve spikes, leather and other….. interesting items. The Hellraiser franchise was ‘rebooted’ in 2022 (I’ve actually seen that one, it’s pretty good) and in this version the box transforms as it’s solved in a variety of ‘Configurations’, every one concealing a sharp blade which would cut the solver and appease the Cenobites. ‘Lament’ was one of the Configurations, the final one being ‘Leviathan’, the god of the Labyrinth.
Like I said, this box won’t bring you unearthly sensations (unless you drop it on your foot, it’s a bit heavy) but it’ll enable you to store your valuables and nicknacks in something owned by demons! For you 3D print nerds out there it’s actually my first attempt at a double-skinned box with the inner shell printed in metallic grey while the outer shell is printed in old gold on a semi-gloss black background. When the top is pushed into place it leaves only a very small join line, so no-one will know what delights may be inside. It’s a bit pricier than normal, mainly because it takes about a week just to print and although I’m very happy with it it’s not….. the easiest assembled item in my range. To put it mildly…..
Order yours today. Go on, be a devil 😉
