Look at that headline. That’s writing right there, folks.
Since it doesn’t seem like we’re going to get that proposed Hellraiser reboot anytime soon (not to mention the Scarlet Gospels Clive Barker’s been teasing for years), fans of the series thankfully have a new documentary to look forward to. Titled Leviathan (which I totally love), the film chronicles the conception of both Hellraiser and Hellbound, promising us an in-depth look at Barker’s famed S&M obsessed demons.
Here’s the official synopsis:
With interviews and testimonies from those most closely involved, we hope to bring a comprehensive insight to these classic cult films. Following the story of the films from their inception through production to release and the their subsequent lives and growing fan base, we aim to show fans and those less familiar with the films both the technical skills, the creative idea, the symbolism and the legacy of these movies.
Delving deep into the director’s vision and ambitions for the project we’ll be exploring where he came from, where his career had taken him and the inspiration for the story and world he created. We’ll be telling the story of his journey of making them and how close they came to his vision at the time and how he feels about them over 25 years later.
As an avid lover of the first two films (we can pretend everything post-Hellbound was never made at all), I cannot wait to check this out. Take a peek at the trailer below, and we’ll update you ASAP on when Leviathan receives an actual release date.
