Larry Cotton was originally married to another woman (Kirsty's mother), who had died. Years later, he re-married to Julia. He was most caring about his daughter Kirsty. He had a tough life and all he was trying to do is keep his family together. He knew that Kirsty disliked Julia, and even though he was understanding of why, he still encouraged her to give her a chance.

On the eve of his wedding to Julia, Frank arrived for the wedding. Frank, a selfish and arrogant man, seduced Julia almost immediately and the two had sex in Larry's bedroom. Larry hates watching himself bleed and when he cut his hand by a nail on the wall by trying to push a mattress up the stairs, he thought he was going to faint or throw up. His wife proceeds to cheat on him with his brother Frank, and is then killed and has his skin taken by Frank.

In Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Frank Cotton appears to Kirsty, claiming to be her father and in Hell, which sets forth the chain of events in the movie. She finds Frank and defeats him, but never finds her father. According to Pinhead, he is in his own hell and cannot be reached.

In Hellraiser: Hellseeker, he is mentioned by Pinhead, where he mockingly says that he is trapped in hell still, and is waiting for his daughter along with Frank and Julia.



  • In Clive Barker's novel, The Hellbound Heart, Larry's name was originally Rory, and he was Kirsty's friend, who she was in love with, rather than her father. Why this was changed in the film is unknown.
