'Hellraiser': Is Dimension Rushing a Sequel Into Production? - Bloody Disgusting!

‘Hellraiser’: Is Dimension Rushing a Sequel Into Production?

HELLRAISER

Last year we broke the news that Dimension Films had lost the rights to the Halloween franchise. The short version of the story is that they have to make a sequel every X amount of years in order to retain the rights. The same goes for Hellraiser.

After Michael Myers stabbed his way out of The Weinstein Company’s grasps, it was pretty clear the duo wouldn’t let it happen again with Pinhead and his fellow Cenobites (or did they?).

I knew that Dimension was on the cusp of losing the Hellraiser rights, too, and was curious to see how things played out. So, it’s not all that surprising that they may be quickly rushing another sequel into production.

The news comes from a surprising source, Heather Langenkamp, best known as “Nancy” in Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street films.

In an interview with Scare Tissue, Langenkamp reveals she begins filming a role in the new Hellraiser next week.

“I actually have an opportunity to play a small part in Hellraiser. I’m so excited about it. I go next week to do the shooting…” she said. “The script is amazing and that I got the part is something that I find incredible.”

When asked who was behind the camera, Langenkamp revealed: “It’s Gary Tunnicliffe, who did all the makeup for all these years. They gave him an opportunity to direct the movie. I think it’s going to be pretty outstanding.”

While Langenkamp specifically calls it a Hellraiser film, it’s filming under the title of Judgment, reports NewsOK, who says shooting began today in Oklahoma City and Guthrie (thanks to Bloody reader Jacob Grim for the tip).

Judgment, which we’re also being told is going by the moniker Strike Accord, features a police officer’s pursuit of a serial killer who undergoes a final accounting of his soul by creatures of the underworld. Ahem, creatures of the underworld? CENOBITES?!

Here’s the kicker: it’s being produced by Mike Leahy of Strike Accord and in association with Puzzle Box Returns Inc. Yes, the company behind the Hellraiser films.

A deeper dig into Google reveals a 2013 Kickstarter campaign that was a massive failure, which resulted in this teaser for “A horror film like no other.”

Tunnicliffe had campaigned to direct the ultra-rushed 2011 Hellraiser: Revelations, which was eventually helmed by Victor Garcia. The movie was made in order to retain the rights to the franchise and was filmed, I believe, in only a week.

Tunnicliffe has worked in the make-up department since the early 90’s and has been on amazing productions from Candyman to Lord of Illusions, Hellraiser III, Wishmaster, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and more.

Even though it’s titled Judgment, if I were a betting man, I’d guess the screenplay for the film has been retooled to live in the Hellraiser universe. It could end up being yet another half-assed sequel that will result in another half-decade of us hearing about a Hellraiser remake that will never happen. (Dimension did the exact same with with the direct-to-DVD 2005 Hellraiser sequels, Deader and Hellworld).

A new update has just come in via Doug Bradley, who played Pinhead in all of the films leading up to Revelations. On a fresh Facebook post he confirms that the film is in fact a Hellraiser sequel, and that he won’t be involved, again.

Anyway, story short: a new movie is happening and I have nothing do with it,” he explains. “I was unable to make a decision about it because I was not allowed to read the script, unlike Revelations where I made a conscious decision not to do the movie based on the motives for making it and the poor quality of the script.

Ouch.

We are huge fans of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser franchise and are hoping for the best. Jon even shared a loving and passionate plea to fix the Hellraiser franchise. Anything is better than that chubby-ass Pinhead (am I right or what?!), which makes me wonder who they’re going to cast in the role this time around? Shit, maybe there will be no Pinhead, as Jon suggested, launching the franchise into new territory?!

Here’s a piece of concept art of “The Auditor,” Judgment‘s villain that was part of Tunnicliffe’s Kickstarter pitch.

  • D. Maki

    I’ll watch it BECAUSE Heather Langenkamp is in it.

    • Hero

      Probably for two minutes, from the sounds of it.

      • D. Maki

        Doesn’t matter to me. Love Heather Langenkamp.

  • Frank Lloyd Jr.

    “fat-face Pinhead”? Really? Fat shaming ain’t cool, bro. Gotta keep it PC.

    • Stoibs

      Awesome! I’m PC too!

      • You’re PC too? I’m PC University of Michigan!

        • Peter Johnson

          I’m PC Texas A&M, bro! WOO WOO!

        • Brett Lovejoy

          PC, bro, YEAH! WOOOOOO!!!

        • wehoaks

          Boooo. PC O-H-I-O

          • Ohio University is fine. Ohio STATE University, on the other hand…

          • wehoaks

            PC GO BUCKS!

          • PC BUCK THE FUCKEYES! BUT ONLY WITH PROPER AND AFFIRMATIVE CONSENT!

          • wehoaks

            Get a consent form bro.

        • sliceanddice

          im a mac – remember those awful ads?

    • Jack Derwent

      The guy who played him isn’t even that fat, I think it was just the makeup that made him look that way.

      • Hero

        To me, the real problem with the makeup was how unrealistic it was. It somehow made the actor look animatronic. The generic voice acting by Fred Tatasciore didn’t help either.

  • Stoibs

    Good for Gary, bad for the Hellraiser franchise. I’m sure he’ll do just fine, but this is getting really sad for Dimension. I really wish they would just sell the rights to someone that actually likes these properties. Where is Blumhouse when you need them?

    • Hanzo Hasashi

      Good thing Halloween got away.

  • Hanzo Hasashi

    Happy for Heather, really big fan of hers. But Hellraiser really needs to be set free from the rusty chains of Dimension Films. Follow Halloween into the path of potential success.

    • Hero

      I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if she pulls a Peta Wilson and drops out after she finds out exactly how cheap and rushed it’s going to be. The script might be decent but I seriously doubt the movie will turn out any good at all if it’s another $350,000 rush job like Revelations.

  • Wes Draven

    I’ve always found the best film from the Hellraiser franchise to be Inferno. The one directed by Scott Derrickson, the guy that did Sinister, Deliver Us from Evil, and will do Doctor Strange.

    I think why I liked it is because it was a crime-thriller that used the Cenobites as a plot device as opposed to a central aspect of the film. I hear these ideas about a remake, about going into the origins of the box and this and that, and honestly, they all sound very tedious and ho-hum.

    I’d like a Hellraiser more in line with Inferno, where it makes it a big deal with Pin-head pops up.

    • Brett Lovejoy

      Hellraiser 3 is my favorite, which tends to be lower on a lot of lists.

    • Hero

      Inferno was essentially to the point where the cenobites could have been replaced by generic demons from Hell and it would have made no difference(their characterization as moral judges is totally wrong anyway). It sounds to me like you have a distaste for the mythology so why bother? Why not find some other movie that fits your tastes better?

      • Wes Draven

        I enjoyed Inferno. I didn’t enjoy most of the others. It isn’t a distaste for the mythology as much as it is the presentation of the mythology. So, no, I will not throw out my opinion on the grounds of it not “fit[ting] my tastes”. I enjoyed the comic-books and Inferno, which I thought was very well-done and from a director I thoroughly enjoy.

        • Hero

          Which comics are you referring to, the Epic series or the Boom series? Because to me, Inferno falls perfectly in line with what the Boom series did with the mythology, which was make Hell and the cenobites all about punishing evil souls while the sadomasochism becomes an incidental trait.

          • Wes Draven

            The Boom series is the one I was speaking about.

    • Adam Clifton

      Inferno was pretty good wasn’t it? Like an episode of Freddy’s Nightmares with the whole ‘dream within a dream within a dream’ aspect. I loved it

  • Gerry Mandering

    So, do they need to keep the rights again?

  • wehoaks

    Hahahahaha oh dimension films!

    • Hanzo Hasashi

      I know right. Poor guys just need to let loose every horror franchise they still have. Halloween at least has some future potential.

      • Mr. Screamer

        I just hope they somehow also lose the rights to SCREAM, so finally New Line for example could pick it up, and finally make a Scream 5 ugh lol. But I think that’s impossible from what I’ve read, because they had the rights to that series from the start, etc.

        • wehoaks

          They own scream outright.

          • Mr. Screamer

            I was thinking, if somehow Dimension loses the rights to both Hellraiser and Children of the Corn, then the next property, and basically the only one that’s very successful would be Scream, right?

          • wehoaks

            Was successful. The fourth movie was not a big moneymaker. If they did a 5 now it would be out of pure desperation and most likely be cheap and feature only one or none of the original cast. Don’t get your hopes up for a proper sequel.

          • Mr. Screamer

            Honestly considering a lot of people didn’t even want a Scream 4, and it was released 11 years after S3, in April, with pretty much almost no advertising, and the hate reviews were apparently louder than the enthusiastic ones for the people who couldn’t decide if they will see it in theathers or not, almost $100M is good. And add in the fact that it would have been quite a bit more succesful if it had the original ending, the original opening, and some deteled scenes to add depth. but meh, I guess. Also, it dropped just $13M from Scream 3 when it comes to overseas box office($59M compared to $72M- the highest grossing in the series internationally). So a Scream 5, if final with the main cast back and most likely in 3D because why the fuck not and a proper October release, would make a killing overseas, I think. So there’s that.

          • wehoaks

            “And add in the fact that it would have been quite a bit more succesful if it had the original ending, the original opening, and some deteled scenes to add depth. but meh, I guess.” – why even bother saying that?

            Whatever the reasons you think it made $97 mil worldwide, it only made $97 mil worldwide. about $75 less than the previous films. Add in the fact that it only made $38 mil domestic, it’s budget was $40 million and they SOLD the foreign rights, no it was not successful and again, you will never get a proper Scream 5.

          • Mr. Screamer

            I just think it’s kinda fucked up that we can have 12, soon to be 13 Friday the 13th, 9 NOES’s, and 10 Halloweens, but Scream can’t have a proper ending with a Part 5. 😐

          • wehoaks

            That’s neither here nor there.

          • Mr. Screamer

            Yeah, I guess you’re right.

          • wehoaks

            Sorry bub, I would love one more well done Scream film. But with Bob Weinstein in control it will never happen (he is responsible for the decisions on 3 and 4 that ruined those films).

          • Mr. Screamer

            I know about Bob, he’s really stupid from what decisions I’ve read he made.

          • RidleyScott

            “Fucked up”? Get a fucking grip. The circumstances are really different.

            Neve and Courteney are really expensive dude lol. Lol the fuck…

          • Mr. Screamer

            Fine, you don’t have to be a bitch about it.

      • Gadriel

        The inevitable Slasher/Werewolf crossover – Howloween.

  • jasonlives1986

    Why am I even here.

    • Gadriel

      To ponder the truth of existence?

  • Kori Batchelor

    :,(

  • Aaron Boone

    Doug Bradley has stated, as with Revelations, that he won’t be involved. Unlike with Revelations, which he didn’t do because he thought everything about it was abysmal, he didn’t even get to see the script for this one, as he refused to sign a fairly ridiculous-sounding gagging order. It’s not even as if this is a cash-grab for Dimension. They know, as I’m sure they did with the last one, that it’s going to be a massive fucking failure. They’re clinging on like grim death, I assume, in the hopes of getting a cut of any remake, if it ever happens.

    I sincerely hope it doesn’t, if only to ensure that these artless, shill cunts don’t see any more cash from the series.

  • Khy

    Psh, take the franchise into new territory? Please, its a movie being shat into production just to keep the rights- Dimension isn’t taking this film seriously just like they didn’t take Revelations seriously. “Judgment” will be released without anyone giving a shit and the series will go silent for another 5-6 years until its time for the next random sequel to be rushed into production for rights purposes.

    I now expect we’ll be hearing about another Children Of The Corn being rushed into production too. Hell, with Halloween gone and them being so desperate, I wouldn’t be surprised if they try popping out another Scary Movie or even a Scream 5(I said this would never happen but with the way things are going it wouldn’t surprise me if they did do it for a quick cash grab).

    • wehoaks

      I always have said scream is dead but now part of expects a very low budget, cheap, sequel in name only Scream film.

      • wehoaks

        With David arquette as the connector of course.

        • Khy

          Exactly. I almost expect it now

          • wehoaks

            Same here. Will be a sad sad day if that happens.

          • Mr. Screamer

            Shhh hopefully they aren’t so dumb, if they are gonna make a Scream 5, then I’m sure they would at least try and make it good considering it will most likely be the finale of the film series.

          • wehoaks

            You’re never gonna get the Scream 5 you think you are/want.

          • Mr. Screamer

            what do you mean ”the Scream 5 you think you ARE”?
            Anyway, I can hope.

          • wehoaks

            You’re not going to get the trio, a proper script etc. Never gonna happen. Kevin Williamson is done and they won’t pay the original cast what they want to return. Never gonna happen.

          • Mr. Screamer

            But Kevin already has a script ready, as he mentioned in 2014. If the Weinsteins let him do his thing, the script could be pretty decent. But I guess you’re right about the budget part. I still don’t know why Scream 4 was as expensive as Scream 3. I mean, they deleted so many scenes, which probably cost quite a lot, and didn’t even use them.
            Then at least there will be a reboot. Or maybe not, at least not for another 10-15 years as the TV show is in fact a reboot and is going pretty well.

          • wehoaks

            Kevin does not have a script. He had ideas for 5 & 6. I was at a Scream screening a few weeks back and he did a Q & A and said he is done with the series. Sorry bub.

            TV show will most likely get cancelled after season 2 and quality wise it is AWFUL.

          • Mr. Screamer

            Oh okay thanks for letting me know. Well, personally, I think at least Scream 4 turned out to be very entertaining. So there’s that. 🙂

          • RidleyScott

            Jesus-fuck

  • Mr. Screamer

    And this news comes right after the ”Deadpool could save Hollywood” article, where it is specified we might get a new Hellraiser very soon. Well, wasn’t that obvious and predictable. :>

  • Peter Johnson

    It seems the people who make these films are too obsessed with the imagery/cenobites, and not the story, despite the massive amounts of stories the Hellraiser universe has open. What do all the other puzzle boxes do? What is Leviathan? Why hasn’t their been another trip to that universe? Hellraiser 2 was incredible due to them actually going into hell (among other things), why the fuck have they not gone back? Fuck you, Dimension, and you’re stupid ideas. You don’t need cenobites or Pinhead! Event Horizon is proof that you don’t need cenobites or Pinhead. I’d like to request Bloodlines be destroyed and Event Horizon take it’s place.

    • Hero

      I think the cenobites are more interesting than the box or Leviathan as they’re what makes Hellraiser what it is. The stories all revolve around the concept of pleasure and pain and they personify it.

      • Peter Johnson

        I see the box and Leviathan as what represents the idea of pain being pleasure, while the cenobites are examples of those pleasures and the people who fall into them, so I guess, yeah personify. To me, though, the cenobites don’t provide the fear, they’re just products of something much scarier.

  • Stoibs

    Edit! Sorry you had a link there.

  • Darth_Siskel

    I was interested in a new Hellraiser movie when Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo we’re on board to Direct.
    Not gonna happen.

    I was interested when Clive Barker himself said he wanted to do a remake.
    Not gonna happen.

    So now I’m getting this. Made for all the wrong reasons.
    Meh…

    • Hero

      Clive’s been on and off this remake TWICE. He was the first person announced to have any involvement when the remake was first announced back in 2007, then like six years later, he’s writing it again. It’s like a real life Hellraiser: Inferno or Groundhog day. Same shit over and over and over again.

    • Peter Johnson

      I was just thinking that those guys needed to direct it. Was that an actual thing they were scheduled for? Honestly, Livide is one of the scariest films I’ve seen in years.

      • Darth_Siskel

        Yeah, I think they left the project in 2011, due to creative differences between them & Weinstein.

        • Peter Johnson

          Of course. It’s always creative differences with horror movies.

  • Hero

    That Auditor character even looks like Tunnicliffe’s rendition of Pinhead from a few years back, sans the nails. It sounds to me like they’ve taken Tunnicliffe’s concept for Judgment which was already sort of a Hellraiser-inspired story and Hellraiser’d it even more. Worse yet, it’s like an Inferno-style Hellraiser with the demons pronouncing judgment on a sinful detective on the tail of a serial killer.

  • Francesco Falciani

    it wil be a shit like Revelation…

  • Gadriel

    I’d be more interested in a Nightbreed/Hellraiser cross-over.

    • James

      Yes sir!!

  • Adam Clifton

    No Doug Bradley, no Pinhead character. Just get Angelique back as the main villain this time out for a change

    • Gadriel

      John Corabi as Pinhead? It could work!

  • Yep: like SAW 2 and both DEADER and HELLWORLD,it’s now another unfilmed script reshaped as a new horror franchise sequel. And with no Doug Bradley back(again !!). Jesus Wept,indeed.

    • Gadriel

      Oh, no tears please, that’s just a waste of a good script…..

  • Chad Langen

    So now I’m wondering if we’re going to get a rushed, half-assed Children of the Corn sequel as well. I remember Hellraiser: Revelations and Children of the Corn: Genesis coming out around the same time. Both were absolutely terrible sequels. I guess we’ll see.

    • Khy

      Pretty much for sure another “Corn” film will be thrown into production this sometime this year.

      • Gadriel

        It should really be Children Of The Genetically Modified Corn…..

        Now THAT is terrifying.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Why is Dimension still even here??? They don’t know how to treat their films and their practically fucking bankrupt! BROKE! So this is just gonna be another low quality shitty ass film. Thank god they lost the rights to Halloween, they need to give up the Hellraiser rights too their not doing anything to better these films, or even provide a quality film.

    • Graham

      Another low quality film that will make it even harder to get people to make a good one down the road.

      • Halloween_Vic

        Exactly, but apparently Dimension is not too smart to understand this. And yet after they fuck this film up they will still be broke.

  • Adaaification

    The last time they rushed a Hellraiser movie it came out shit. It was in some points closer to the original then 3 onwards, but the result belongs: It was shit.

  • I have a sliver of hope for this only because I know Tunnicliffe has a lot of reverence for the franchise and the original films. He even shot a Hellraiser fan film ages ago that’s pretty good. So, while I have no faith in the Weinsteins I think Tunnicliffe could put together something worthy of the Hellraiser name.

  • Seal Clubber

    Just – why? If you are not going to do anything good with the IP then sell the rights (make money that way) or let it go back to someone who will put time and effort into a proper “Hellraiser” movie. All a bad release will do is piss everyone off and devalue the IP.

  • Braker

    Plot for Judgement: “Judgment .. features a police officer’s pursuit of a serial killer who undergoes a final accounting of his soul by creatures of the underworld.”

    Plot for Hellraiser Inferno: “A shady police detective becomes embroiled in a strange world of murder, sadism and madness after being assigned a murder investigation against a madman known only as “The Engineer”.” (And undergoes a final accounting of his soul.)

    GLAD THEY’RE REACHING FOR SOMETHING NEW PLOT-WISE.

  • Nathan Bradley

    I can’t believe they are clinging to Hellraiser when they let Halloween slip through their fingers. For me I think the Hellraiser films are so piss poor in quality that it is hard to believe that anyone still likes them. At least Michael Myers stayed theatrical, in America at least, right to the very end.

    • Khy

      I’m still surprised they let Halloween fall from their grasps especially when they had nothing but opportunity to get another movie going.

      • wehoaks

        Thank god they did though. Ay yai yai the Halloween films they have made and were about to make were aaaaaaaawful (save H20 which is good at best)!

        • Khy

          They didn’t have enough BEEEEERRRRRRRR!
          BEER IZ SO KEWLZZZ! XOXO

          • wehoaks

            Ooooooh all that beer…

  • sliceanddice

    Shit the bed! Lots to think about here – first issue that this is not the remake clive said he was onboard for and pretty much confirmed last year or so. Also, that Judgement trailer looks appalling. As others have already stated too, it sounds just like inferno.

    Anyway, I live and dream that one day we will get a decent sequel / reboot or whatever. Hellraiser deserves it. it’s been treated like shit for far too long.

    Looking forward to hearing more about this over the coming days.

  • Robert a Bb

    how cool would it be if it was a cross over and she played as nancy who survived multiple times going against freddy. and they mention freddy in the movie.i know the probably cant say it but they can hint at it. like you survived nightmares not even i can fathom. talk about a burnt man with claws but never mention his name. idk just throwing stuff out there

    • Gadriel

      An Elm St/Hellraiser cross-over would be cool (not sure if it could happen, because who owns the rights to Elm St now?) but in reality Pinhead should kick Freddy’s arse, but when it came to HR2 when the Cenobites were completely BATTERED by Dr Channard (although in fact, he WAS being controlled by Leviathan so yeah) it does look like he’s not THAT tough – although perhaps, along with the others cens, he was just distracted by memories of his past life.

      • Robert a Bb

        well if freddy is brought to hell. those 3 demons that went into him to make him the creature he is. they might be able to protect him. and you would see pinhead bring back jason. and maybe ash from evil dead could control pinhead cause hell have the book of the dead AND the cube

      • Robert a Bb

        i think that fan made video looks a million times better. with him in hell with those hundreds if not thousands of people reaching for him to end their pain. id like to see pinhead in hell.and someone trying to escape hell . maybe the soldier that became him separates and hes trying to get out of hell by defeating the evil within himself. and in the end the only way to defeat him is to take his spot. so its a vicious circle of him becoming pinhead over and over. idk just a thought i know its bad but im thinking of something else

        • Gadriel

          It wouldn’t really make sense though if Captain Spencer was trying to escape from Pinhead though, as he voluntarily rejoined with Hell Priest – ahem – Pinhead in HR3, and it was the split that led to Pinhead being able to go on the rampage against innocents, so Spencer conceded that he needed to stay as Pinhead to bring balance.

    • Spencer Jacobson

      LOL multiple times? The second time he killed her.

  • wehoaks

    All this crap and money spent to retain the rights for the eventually remake that won’t make much money anyway. Oh dimension how I love thee.

    • Khy

      LOL Same with Children Of The Corn too. I guess they feel Hellraiser and Children Of The Corn reboots will rejuvenate the horror genre and take them out of the hole while also curing disease.

      • wehoaks

        Hahahaha. Both remakes will be lucky to make enough to rub two pennies together.

        • Khy

          Let ’em go dimension. Let them ALL go. You guys can keep Scary Movie though. Nobody gives a fuck about them. lol

          • wehoaks

            I am convinced there will be another one of those one day too

          • Gadriel

            Scary Movie : The Remake.

            It’s on the way.
            Sadly, I guarantee it……

          • Braker

            Looks like the full details just broke at Fangoria

      • Gadriel

        Well I did hear that they are planning on a Candyman remake which will cure the Zika virus.

      • RidleyScott

        Yuck, Children of the Corn. That poor franchise. Fucking weirdest movies EVER.

    • sliceanddice

      it’s spelt ‘loathe’ 🙂

    • RidleyScott

      Like WHAT? Hellraiser is not a big fucking moneymaker.

      • wehoaks

        Splat.

  • i.am.pain.®

    this guy writing and directing it also wrote the last hellraisturd. so be prepared to be beaten over the head with every possible hellraiser cliche imaginable.

  • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

    if a dracula drinks blood then does it poo blood?
    if it does poo the blood it drinks does that mean the poo’d out blood could still be used for blood donation purposes?

  • AdamX

    Hellraiser deserves better. If only New Line shelled out back in 02/03 then we could’ve gotten one of the most epic endings in cinema history and maybe an awesome sequel by tossing in Ash and hell why not Myers too. If Expendables can do it why couldn’t horror.

  • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

    also, wouldn’t it be fun to have a new frankenstien that was based on a junk yard owner that was paid under the table to dispose of cars and people that were murdered by local gangs? maybe he gets to invested when recognizing a car. maybe that car was owned by a family man who had debts. maybe the junkyard owner tries to bring the guy back to life and succeeds. then they both get their revenge nightly. his wife crudely stitching the dead man back together nightly. sometimes replacing destroyed limbs of gangsters.

      Actually, that sounds like something I’d watch. Hope you have that copyrighted, someone from Syfy Channel or Troma might see it.

        well, i’m broke and have no means to film it. would be nice if someone paid me to spout off ideas. from my brief interactions with lloyd over twitter years ago; he seems like a nice guy.

    Let me guess, it’s going to be another one of those direct to video shit fests? I guess Dimension needs to lose the rights Hellraiser and it’s shameful Heather is apart of this, she deserves better,

    I notice that you changed it from “fat-faced Pinhead” to “chubby-ass Pinhead”. That’s still not PC, bro.

    I have absolutely no reason to doubt any of the conclusions in your article. Good digging and good job gently calling out the studio on its shenanigans.
