Like Hellraiser? More specifically the first two films in the series? Then you may be in luck since Variety is reporting that Sonar Entertainment (previously RHI Entertainment) is developing “Hellraiser” for the small screen along with some of the franchise’s early principal players.
Per Variety “Sonar is co-developing with Eric Gardner’s Panacea Ent. “Hellraiser,” a TV series based on the cult British horror franchise. Gardner will exec produce along with Larry Kuppin, whose company New World Entertainment is behind the first two ‘Hellraiser’ pics.”
Sonar announced, “One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him.
Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.”
There’s no word on a network yet, not that there needs to be since the series isn’t actually in production yet. Still… could be cool for you Hellraiser fans if it ever comes to fruition. Either way it can’t be worse than the last movie.
