Hellbound HeartRegular readers of Balladeer’s Blog may recall how fond I am of Clive Barker’s novel The Hellbound Heart and the subsequent Hellraiser horror film franchise. Mike LeHan and Paul Gerrard directed and produced a 2013 spec trailer hoping to get a reboot of the series greenlit.

Unfortunately that did not happen, but their trailer shows a lot of work went into it. The depiction of Hell is in keeping with the spirit of the first two Hellraiser movies and the re-imagining of Pinhead is intriguing but not entirely appealing. Anyway, the spec trailer is worth a look if you’ve already read Barker’s The Scarlet Gospels and are starved for more Cenobite material.

    Loved it! Too bad this movie never got made.

    Interesting. Unfortunately Barker himself seems to have torpedoed additional interest in a reboot.

    I like the Hellraiser series and I think it might have been good to see what these new men would have done with the series.

  6. I liked the look of their Hell.
