They should petition for a director's cut of Kevin Yagher's Hellraiser 4: Lost in Space. I always liked the film but knew it was chopped to shit. Hey, if they can do a restoration for Halloween: Producer's Cut then they can do it for Bloodlines.

As far as the DTV sequels go Inferno is my favorite one.

Even in its current state, there's some worthy material in Bloodlines. It isn't a great film by any stretch, but it's the first Hellraiser film I saw in theaters and I still mostly dig it.

I never saw Hellraiser till a few years ago. I've always loved Pinhead's design though. Bought the OOP BD and I loved it. really good storytelling. I really need to get into Barker's writing. I've never read any of his stuff.

I wish he would just make something more akin to Hellbound Heart. The first one was pretty faithful, but Pinhead was not front and center in the book. In fact, that cenobite isn't even male !

re: Hellraiser (2022, D: Bruckner)

Spyglass Media Group has announced their first project since launching back in March and will fast track a re-imagination of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic Hellraiser with David S. Goyer producing and writing.

Gary Barber, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spyglass, made the announcement today.

Over three decades, the Hellraiser franchise has spawned ten films, graphic novels and merchandise. The original movie was based on Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart and followed the resurrection of Frank, who opens a door to another dimension and saw his body destroyed by the Cenobites, who are creatures from Hell that grand sadomasochistic pleasures to those who call upon them. The most notable of them is Pinhead (who is the face of Hellraiser). Years later, Frank’s brother Larry moves into their late mother’s abandoned house with new wife Julia. He has an accident, which triggers Frank’s resurrection, and soon enables the Cenobites to come forth again.

Spyglass will finance and develop the pic for worldwide theatrical distribution. Keith Levine will serve as a producer alongside Goyer, under the Phantom Four banner. Chris Stone, Vice President, Development & Production for Spyglass, will oversee the project.

Barber said, “Clive and I go back more than 30 years together. For generations, his brilliantly twisted and imaginative Hellraiser haunted the minds of moviegoers with its searing imagery of Pinhead.” He added, “David is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive’s vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser.”

Goyer said, “I’ve been a fan of Clive’s work since the original Books of Blood paperbacks and The Hellbound Heart novella. Having the chance to reimagine Pinhead and the Cenobites for a new audience is a nightmare-come-true. Gary is a true fan as well and we’re committed to making something dark and visceral.”

Goyer co-wrote Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise (Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises); wrote Marvel’s Blade trilogy for New Line and co-wrote the upcoming Skydance/Paramount/Fox production Terminator: Dark Fate. Goyer is show-running the upcoming Foundation series at Apple. He is repped by WME and John LaViolette.

It can't be much worse than most of the sequels. I always am leery of Goyer's involvement in films that interest me though.

Yeah. I feel like heís decent if working with someone, but left to his own devices is when I feel like he has problems. Iíll probably see this if it looks decent, but Iíve really never been a huge Hellraiser/Pinhead fan.

It's going to be hard to top the orginal Pinhead...





And he'd better be properly diabolical and not cartoonish.

re: Hellraiser (2022, D: Bruckner)

I've made it through all of the sequels. Some were ok, if you didn't try to hold it in comparison to the first few. Others were barely tolerable. The most recent one was decent, although that may be because of the few before it not being all that great.

I think having a movie that actually starts out as a Hellraiser story, instead of being adapted from something else, will have the quality already be an improvement.

I've somehow never seen any of them, and I enjoy me some horror movies. Is the first one worth seeing at least?

Hellraiser 3: Hell On Earth was the first and only movie I've gotten to be an extra in. Good times!
I was amazed (at the time) how it took six hours to film what ended up being like 20-30 seconds of the film.

Shoutout for Hellraiser: Bloodline which, despite taking Pinhead to space, is actually a decent film and all of the Victorian era stuff is way cool.

Those should have been two separate films. One Hellraiser set entirely in the 18th century, and another set in space in the far future. The mythology is broad enough to do in just about any setting.
