The Hellraiser documentary steps into next phase…
“Leviathan: The Making of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2“ completed its UK studio shoot this week by interviewing third assistant director, Rupert Ryle-Hidges, Beverly Pond-Jones, make-up effects and Simon Sayce, who’s main contribution to the production was the design and creation of the icon puzzle box, the Lament Configuration!
Simon shared never before seen goodies including high resolution scans of the original designs and layouts for the mechanical design, as well as the first brass etching produced for the screen used boxes.
He also revealed the proper method for making the boxes – something few outside the production know – and he shared some of the hidden meaning in the box designs.
The doc carries interviews with many people behind this classic film, including Doug Bradley, Kenneth Cranham and Geoff Portas, just to name but a few.
The documentary now heads to the U.S.to interview both Clive Barker and Tony Randall.
Watch for further updates soon.
