Preview Pages from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary #5 (of 6)

15 December 2014 11:48 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It can be deadly just to cross paths with Pinhead, but to attack the notorious Cenobite and pry the pins from his flesh? Many would consider that to be suicide. But poachers have done just that in Hellraiser: Bestiary, a comic book miniseries from Boom! Studios. The fifth issue hits shelves this Wednesday and sees Pinhead gaining some assistance against his assailants, and we have a set of preview pages that tease what’s ahead.

“Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the Hellraiser mythos as only he could, building a long-form narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series—free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences.

Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians!”

Bluray Review: Lord Of Illusions

14 December 2014 2:59 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This year has definitely been one of a hit for both Scream Factory And Clive Barker. Sf gave fans countless releases completely devoted to the genre’s fans, including the phenomenal Halloween: The Complete Collection, which brought the entire series, along with the long-wanted “Producer’s Cut” of H6 to the masses. Also a smashing success of a release, was the final releasing of Barker’s Nightbreed: The Director’S Cut, a release that fans have been waited two decades for.  Sf put out many more wonderful releases, but even just mentioning those two is reason enough to triumph the genre juggernaut of a company.

Adding another long-waited film of Clive Barker’s to the Bluray format, is Scream Factory’s excellent Director’s Cut release of his 1995 magic noir tale, Lord Of Illusions. Though the film’s supplemental features aren’t as massive as Nightbreed‘s, the release »

Simon Pegg Will Play The Devil in The Gathering

13 December 2014 12:02 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Simon Pegg playing the Devil?! Sounds good to me! The actor has been cast in a horror comedy called The Gathering, and it sounds awesome! I never thought I’d see Pegg as the Devil, but now that it’s out in the universe it makes complete sense. The movie is being directed by Jon Keeyes, and he talked to Fangoria about the project. This is how he describes the fantastic story that he’s going to tell:

“On Halloween night, the devil brings together Mary Shelley, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker, and Edgar Allan Poe in purgatory to tell their best untold tales, the idea being that whoever has the best story of the night gets to leave purgatory forever ... We've tried to put a spin on the essence of the stories they're most well-known for. So Stoker tells a vampire tale, but it's not about Dracula. H.P. Lovecraft's »

Clive Barker: Demon To Some, Angel To Others

25 November 2014 2:07 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

We’ve seen the clichés time and time again: flesh-munching zombies, deranged hitchhikers, disturbingly naive teenage babysitters, evil cliques of high school girls, whackos off dirt roads in rural America…. However, there are many movies that thrive upon original ideas and unique plots. One of the most imaginative figures in the realm of contemporary horror is Clive Barker. He has always eschewed formulas and clichés in favor of experimental (and often confusing or deceptive) visual storytelling devices and atmosphere.

Barker first formed a theater in London at age 21 to produce the plays he wrote, all of which were recognized for their horrific but fantastical elements. The profoundly unique and imaginative qualities that composed Barker's work is what led his novels to being adapted into films, which then inspired him to direct his own: enter Hellraiser (1987) . Based on his novella entitled The Hellbound Heart, the movie follows the alternate world of »

It can be deadly just to cross paths with Pinhead, but to attack the notorious Cenobite and pry the pins from his flesh? Many would consider that to be suicide. But poachers have done just that in Hellraiser: Bestiary, a comic book miniseries from Boom!

Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut | Blu-ray Review

11 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Back in 1990, just prior to its release, 20th Century Fox recut Nightbreed drastically, attempting to shift its somewhat progressive, fantastical subtext into the format of a relatively standard slasher film. Though Clive Barker managed to get the film funded in part by the cult success of his oft-misunderstood examination of aberrant sexual desire, Hellraiser, the notion of marketing a film that deliberately subverted the existing hero ethos—positing outsiders as victims rather than villains—was a little too much for a wide release with a video game tie-in. The resulting film was understandably an intriguing mess that genuinely felt unfinished or at least lacking in the usual depth of purpose associated with Barker’s work.

After some years had passed and the Internet was able to facilitate conversations that would otherwise never happen, some of the cut footage was found in rough VHS form, leading to the creation of “The Cabal Cut” of the film, »

The 30 Best Horror Movies of the Past 30 Years

10 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The slasher movie, if we'll admit it to ourselves, is about our fears of teen sexuality. Whether you're a teen made nervous by your own hormones or a parent afraid of what trouble those hormones will get your kid into, the slasher-movie villain is your fears made flesh. But with the release 30 years ago this week (November 9, 1984) of Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the slasher film entered a new dimension.

With the creation of Freddy Krueger (played indelibly by Robert Englund), who could kill teens in their dreams, the slasher villain proved there was no place that was safe, not even the subconscious.

In retrospect, the genre may have peaked with the release of this film; after all, how many other slasher villains since have been anywhere near as memorable? Unlike his predecessors, Jason Voorhees (of the "Friday the 13th" movies) and Michael Myers (of the "Halloween »

Story Details for Clive Barker's Hellraiser Reboot

8 November 2014 9:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Back in 2013 it was revealed that Clive Barker would be writing the script for a reboot to his 1987 horror movie Hellraiser. We haven't heard much about the project since that news broke, but this reboot has been in development for years. If anyone is going to get it off the ground and into production, it's Barker. In an interview with EW the filmmaker revealed that he recently sent out a second draft of the script to Dimension films' chief Bib Weinstein. He also offered up a few details regarding the story, saying:

"I think the phrase is ‘reboot,’ although I’ve never really understood what that meant. I wanted to make sure we sounded some fresh notes. The movie actually begins on Devil’s Island. I wanted to fold into the Hellraiser narrative something about the guy—the Frenchman Lemarchand—who made the mysterious box, which raises Pinhead. I figured, »

Clive Barker talks about the Hellraiser reboot

5 November 2014 10:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Clive Barker announced that he’s set to reboot the Hellraiser franchise by writing and directing a new take on his original 1986 novella The Hellbound Heart, and now the British author has provided an update to Entertainment Weekly, confirming that a second draft has been handed in, as well as touching upon details of the story for what he describes as a “very loose” remake:

“I think the phrase is ‘reboot,’ although I’ve never really understood what that meant. I wanted to make sure we sounded some fresh notes. The movie actually begins on Devil’s Island. I wanted to fold into the Hellraiser narrative something about the guy—the Frenchman Lemarchand—who made the mysterious box, which raises Pinhead.

5 November 2014 5:32 AM, PST | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

Straight from his Facebook page, word was received yesterday that Clive Barker would be returning to his prize possession Hellraiser with intent to re-make. The notion is indeed an exciting one as fans were hoping that the script would be a Barker product and not some studio bastard “child-of”. Original pinhead actor Doug Bradley has also been given the Ok to return to his iconic role.

‘Despicable Me’ spin-off ‘Minions’ gets a teaser

4 November 2014 5:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When discussing the Minions of the Despicable Me franchise, I’m reminded of how Pinhead described the Cenobites in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: “Demons to some, angels to others.” While Steve Carell’s Gru was the initial selling point of the series, his Rabbids-like henchmen quickly became the stars, despite the polarising effect of annoying the hell out of many a viewer of either film. (Your mileage may vary.)

Money speaks, and so it is that we have a teaser trailer for the Minions spin-off, a film put into production before massive hit Despicable Me 2 was even released. Though their appearances are not included in this footage, the film will feature the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Steve Coogan, Jennifer Saunders, and Hiroyuki Sanada as Sumo Villain. Considering it originated on the soundtrack for Despicable Me 2, kudos to the makers of the below trailer for not »

Clive Barker Delivers New Hellraiser Screenplay

4 November 2014 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hellraiser remake train continues to chug its way through the development inferno, and a year after his involvement was first announced, original director and author Clive Barker has revealed a few more details about what might be in store. He's just delivered his second draft of the new screenplay to his cenobite masters the Weinsteins. "I think the phrase is reboot," he says, "though I've never really understood what that meant."In recent years this new version of Barker's demented S&M demon horror has passed through the hands of Inside directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury; Saw sequel writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton; Martyrs mentalist Pascal Laugier; The Roommate's Christian E Christiansen; and the Drive Angry / My Bloody Valentine team of Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer.It seemed to get the most traction in that last period, but Lussier and Farmer then walked, seemingly because Dimension were aiming for a PG-13 certificate. »

Hellraiser Is Getting A Reboot, This Is What It's About

4 November 2014 9:36 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remakes and reboots, on the whole, tend to be met with a serious disdain . particularly when they involve projects as revered as the original Hellraiser. While there's been a reboot batted around by Dimension Pictures, with Patrick Lussier at the helm for quite some time, the project hasn't really gained the traction it needs to be made into reality. Which means, it's the perfect time for series creator and writer of the film's source material, Clive Barker, to step in and save the day. While covering the resurrection of Barker's 1990's cult classic Nightbreed, thanks to a newly revised director's cut being released on Blu Ray, Entertainment Weekly got to talking to the esteemed horror artist about the status of the remake that Bob Weinstein and Dimension Entertainment have been keen on keeping in the pipeline. According to Clive Barker, he's just handed in his second draft to Dimension, and »

Clive Barker: what to expect from the Hellraiser reboot

2 November 2014 11:05 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Clive Barker has just submitted the latest draft of the new Hellraiser screenplay. And he's revealed one or two things about it...

Rebooting of horror franchises is rarely, for good reason, something welcomed with particularly open arms. However, one thing going for the planed new take on Hellraiser is that its original creator, Clive Barker, is involved. In fact, he's more than involved: Barker is penning the screenplay for the film, and he's now submitted a second draft of his script to The Weinstein Company.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, Barker revealed more of the new Hellraiser. "I think the phrase is ‘reboot'", he said, "although I’ve never really understood what that meant".

Clive Barker Provides Story Details For Hellraiser Reboot

2 November 2014 6:54 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last year around this time, Clive Barker ("Lord of Illusions") revealed on his official facebook page that he was writing a reboot of 1987's Hellraiser, which is based on the novella The Hellbound Heart. Since then we haven't heard anything about it, until Entertainment Weekly recently posted a new article featuring Clive Barker. In the piece, we learn that Barker sent a second draft of the script to Dimension Films chief Bob Weinstein (producer) a short time ago. Barker also discussed some details regarding the film's plot. "I think the phrase is ‘reboot,’ although I’ve never really understood what that meant. I wanted to make sure we sounded some fresh notes. The movie actually begins on Devil’s Island.

'Hellraiser' Reboot Story Details Revealed by Clive Barker

Just over one year ago, legendary horror filmmaker Clive Barker revealed that he has come aboard to write the Dimension Films reboot for what was his directorial debut, the 1987 horror classic Hellraiser. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, but Clive Barker recently offered an update in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, where he shed new insight into the Hellraiser plot.

"I think the phrase is 'reboot,' although I've never really understood what that meant. I wanted to make sure we sounded some fresh notes. The movie actually begins on Devil's Island.
