A quick update from Mr. Clive Barker regarding his vision for Dimension’s Hellraiser remake, which he is currently penning. It’s kind of hilarious to me that this question was even asked as if anyone in their right mind would make a PG-13 Hellraiser film…
“As questions are asked I’ll do my best to answer them, though as you all know making movies is a volatile art, and things seldom remain fixed,” Barker tells fans on his Facebook page. “One question regarding the rating has been asked. I asked it too, and Dimension confirmed that they are purely interested in an R-rated picture.
In other breaking news, Barker does surprise fans with news that, once he completes Hellraiser, he has a new, original horror movie idea he’ll be putting down on paper.
“Somebody else asked why I’m not writing something original,” says Barker. “The answer is that I am. After Hellraiser I intend to write and direct a completely new horror movie, which will mingle graphic horror and erotic content, to create an unrated film which will push the envelope of extreme content further than ever…”
Again, why would anyone make Hellraiser PG-13? I was embarrassed for whomever asked that and forced me to write this non-news editorial…
