Yesterday, Clive Barker ("Lord of Illusions"), surprised horror fans by announcing on his official Facebook page that he will be writing the screenplay for a new Hellraiser film. It revealed that it will be a remake of the original 1987 film, which is based on novella The Hellbound Heart. I'm assuming The Weinstein Company (producers) are hoping for the same type of success that the Evil Dead franchise experienced will rub off on Hellraiser. A franchise that has been in decline for many, many years. The last five Hellraiser films have straight-to-dvd. As for Barker, he hasn't written a screenplay since 2008's Book of Blood, and before that it was 1995's Lord of Illusions. He also hasn't involved with Hellraiser since 1996's Hellraiser IV: Bloodline. Which was the fourth film in the franchise, and sadly the last of the nine films in the series to be released in theaters. Hot From Hell! »

When Famke Janssen slips into the hotel room of the Four Season in Beverly Hills, she doesn't look like she has aged a day since I first met her over 15 years ago at the Lord of Illusions premiere party in New York City.
At the time, I was just some film student who had snuck into a Hollywood bash. Janssen, on the other hand, was poised to become kind of a big deal. Although the Clive Barker film she starred in, alongside Scott Bakula, didn't quite take off, Goldeneye - which opened a few months later in '95 - certainly did. Now, here she is, promoting Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and she still looks incredible - one of those actresses you suspect bathes in the blood of virgins to look so damn good.
