Clive Barker and Dimension Pictures is returning to HELLRAISER


I would’ve been more elated by news of a Nightbreed reboot, but I guess this will have to do. Director and writer Clive Barker left an interesting Facebook update that confirms a Hellraiser reboot. Clive promises the same energy as the first, but just with more darkness? I don’t understand how much darker Hellraiser could get, but if the reboot of Evil Dead is any evidence, I’m guessing really really dark and as if this news wasn’t climatic and anti climatic enough, part of the terms of returning to the franchise was that Doug Bradley had to return as Pinhead.

You want to know how I feel about this? I am all for this, provided he doesn’t get all “you mustn’t change what I have put in place”. In order for this to work, this will have to be utterly Satanic. So fucking twisted and well written and acted, that it would put everything to shame. This would be the only way this would work. We mustn’t forget that it had nine tries to salvage the franchise from it’s uninterrupted downward trajectory. The last being  Hellraiser: Revelations in 2011.

When comparing the Hellraiser film series with the other top-grossing horror franchises—A Nightmare on Elm Street, Child’s Play, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Saw, Scream, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre—and adjusting for the 2008 inflation, Hellraiser is the lowest grossing horror franchise in the United States, at approximately $84 million.

This requires a new touch, one that Clive could nurture and weave a beautiful dance with, if done right. There are tons of talented individuals that would love the opportunity. I hope he gives them a chance.

HOT FROM HELL! My friends,I have some news which may be of interest to you. A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures,in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first HELLRAISER film. The idea of my coming back to the original film and telling the story with a fresh intensity-honoring the structure and the designs from the first incarnation but hopefully creating an even darker and richer film-was attractive to Dimension. Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch.What can I tell you about it?Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER. Of course the best make-up in the world loses force if not inhabited by a first-rate actor. I told the Dimension team that in my opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley,and much to my delight Bob Weinstein agreed. So once the papers are signed , I will open a Lemarchand Configuration,dip my quill in its contents and start writing . I promise that there will be nowhere on the Internet where the news of my progress will be more reliable than here ,because the only author of these reports will be Your Infernal Corespondent ,me. My very best wishes to you
all,my friends.


Exclusive clip from the new EVIL DEAD will make you a believer NSFW


From the day I learned that the Sam Raimi‘s classic was going to get redone, I didn’t have any strong feelings either way. My thoughts were like the studios “show me the trailer”. So when I got to see the first trailer, I still wasn’t convinced, I know I should’ve been because the trailer was rather brutal, but I needed more. Well folks, today I got more and I’m sharing that bit of nastiness with you sick F**K’s! First off, let me congratulate the studio for showing this clip and not trying to trick us out of ten or twelve dollars for some cut away shots. This is as hard as hard get’s. What’s brilliant about it is it looks like all of it was done old school. Clever editing, latex and a load of corn syrup and red dye (that’s the components of fake blood). Just the way the good lord intended it?

Mia, a young woman struggling with sobriety, heads to a remote cabin with her brother and a group of friends, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads to danger and horror.

Folk’s after this clip, I am sold, consider this ticket bought and I have seats already waiting for you. I think what’s also helping is that it’s not the same storyline, but that it’s another group of kids, with a whole different set of issues stumbling across the Necronomicon (Book of the Dead) in the middle of the woods.

Evil Dead is directed by Fede Alverez (Panic Attack) and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas and Lou Taylor Pucci. Evil Dead opens April 5th, 2013 in theaters nationwide.

EVIL DEAD – Official Redband Teaser Trailer


The good and screwed up people at QuietEarth posted this insane trailer for a zombie film that is probably still in production and probably still needs money, but they have one hell of a start with this trailer. I doubt the whole story will revolve around these kids, but it’s nice to know they can handle themselves when it comes to ridden the world of the undead scum. You can keep up with the Homeland “goings on” on their Facebook page. Hey…I for one hope that this bad boy get’s made, it looks even grittier than The Walking Dead. Is that even possible?
