The remake bandwagon is not slowing down any time soon, and a Hellraiser Reboot is the latest addition. Fortunately, horror genius and Pinhead creator is on board, and is going to write the script for the remake.
Excitingly, the Pinhead himself () is coming back to terrify audiences again, at Barker's insistence. Barker shared on Facebook:
A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with of Dimension Pictures, in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first Hellraiser film. Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch.
Barker sounds like he's got his head in the right place for a decent remake, promising a 'fresh intensity' whilst keeping close to the values of the first classic.
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.
Have you seen all NINE existing Hellraiser movies? Barker And are you exited to see the needle-faced horror legend get the proper big screen treatment again?
