“ ‘Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II’ is a feature length documentary uncovering the history, making of and unknown details of the making of Clive Barker’s ‘Hellraiser’ and ‘Hellbound: Hellraiser II’ films.
With interviews and testimonies from those most closely involved, we hope to bring a comprehensive insight to these classic cult films.
Following the story of the films from their inception through production to release and the their subsequent lives and growing fan base, we aim to show fans and those less familiar with the films both the technical skills, the creative idea, the symbolism and the legacy of these movies.
Delving deep into the director’s vision and ambitions for the project we’ll be exploring where he came from, where his career had taken him and the inspiration for the story and world he created. We’ll be telling the story of his journey of making them and how close they came to his vision at the time and how he feels about them over 25 years later.”
We’re told they’re aiming for this to be THE definitive and most in-depth Hellraiser documentary that focuses on what are easily the best entries in the franchise.
