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.
A lot of horror classics have gotten the reboot treatment in the last couple of years. Now that Hellraiser Writer/Director Clive Barker has been brought into the picture, things seem to be heating up in the Hellraiser camp. There’s even talk that Doug Bradley, the original Pinhead will be actively enticed to reprise the role. (more…)
It seems the Hellraiser franchise is ready to have it’s ninth film (yup, there are eight of them already out) ready to roll as the project has finally been titled and found it’s director. Hellraiser: Revelations will be directed by Victor Garcia (Return to House on Haunted Hill), who just finished directing Mirrors 2 for FOX. The film’s writer is Gary J. Tunicliffe, who has been working on the Hellraiser films as the FX Artist and has even done his own short based on the franchise he has been loyal to. Also, it seems that this film may not be the reboot that has been rumored for years now.
What do you guys think? Are any of you still a fan of this Clive Barker series? Or has your love for the franchise died many years ago?
