Because a bazillion Hellraiser movies based on Clive Barker‘s 1987 original isn’t enough, Sonar Entertainment and executive producer Larry Kupin (who brought us Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II. )are developing Hellraiser: The Series.
Sonar teases the series like this:
One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him. Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.
The prospect of a TV show revolving around Pinhead and his clan of cenobites tickles my gory pleasures, but I don’t know if there’s any channels that it would work for, without cutting back on the violence. Which would simply be unacceptable.
On a side note: I don’t like how they’re referring Pinhead as a “insidious villain”. He’s never been good or bad…he simply is. People seek the pleasure of hell…he gives it to them…they demand, he supplies. That’s it.
