It’s clear that Barker and Seifert are confident in the new directions for Kirsty, Spencer, and D’Amour.

With enough disturbing imagery to mess with your head, horror fans should not miss out on the scary and darkly humorous “Hellraiser Annual 2013″ #1. As a stand-alone issue, this is a great place for newcomers to jump into the “The Dark Watch” series. For longtime followers, this is a another reason why they should be excited that Clive Barker is back at writing another “Hellraiser” movie. READ MORE
Have $8,000 just laying around? Have a way to get to Austin, Texas to pick up this art? Well, we have something perfect for you.
Created for Bernie Wrightson & Steve Niles’ “Something Spooky” at Guzu Gallery, Nicole Cantú created one of the greatest pieces of horror art of all time.
What she has for sale is “Lord of Leviathan”, a Hellraiser-inspired piece of art (sized 24″ x 36″) depicting Pinhead and the Lament Configuration box done up with stained glass in a light box.
It’s too delicate to ship, so you’ll have to pick it up. If you have $8,000 to drop, I dare you to bring a suitcase filled with singles, although you’ll burn in hell for that. READ MORE
The past two weeks have been absolutely ripe with announcements for horror sequels and remakes, or at least suggestions of them. None of the projects are actually in production (a few are in development and we’re taking the word of creatives for the others), but they seem to be on the way! While the natural laws of Hollywood guarantee that at least one of these projects will die before cameras roll, I thought it would be fun to talk about the potential upsides (and downsides) of each film.
Note that I’m keeping this list only to projects we’ve gotten news about during the past month or so. So while the new Friday The 13th is very much on the way – we haven’t gotten an update on it in October so you won’t see it on this list. We’re going to be focussing on the titles you’ve seen splashed on this front page during this hallowed month.
Head below to see what they are and what our hopes are for them! READ MORE
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… READ MORE
I received quite a few e-mails from readers over the weekend hoping to double and triple confirm the news that Clive Barker will be writing the remake to his Hellraiser for Dimension Films, and that Doug Bradley will once again suffer through the daily make-up application to transform into Pinhead.
The fact of the matter is, while Barker revealed the news on Facebook, there’s still an long, long road out of hell (pun intended).
Here’s the facts: Barker is writing a full screenplay for a pitch both Bob and Harvey Weinstein liked. Barker wants Bradley back in action, they said yes. This doesn’t guarantee that the movie gets made. In fact, it doesn’t even guarantee that they’ll use Barker’s script once completed. READ MORE
It’s still that time of year when we keep dolling out Halloween Treats and, for whatever reason, I’m really hung up on the “slasher as baby” thing. Earlier in the week I brought you collection of them from one artist and now I’ve culled a bunch of different types of art (illustrations, toys, dolls) from a bunch of disparate places.
We’ve got baby versions of Jason, Freddy, Pinhead, Leatherface and… Jason (there’s a lot of him out there)! Head below for a quick look before moving on with your day! Click to make big!
I’m pretty sure I find Pinhead to be the most disturbing one of all. So lifelike. READ MORE
BREAKING: It’s been a long, hard road out of development hell, and Pinhead isn’t out of the woods just yet.
After years in development, and god awful sequels, Dimension Films is finally embarking on a quest to the seven levels of Hell with Hellraiser creator Clive Barker!
Barker, who hasn’t been involved since Hellbound: Hellraiser II, has officially announced that he will be writing the hellraiser remake for The Weinstein Company – and also revealed that Doug Bradley will return as the iconic slasher!
Halloween has come early! READ MORE

Back in August 2012 we told you about a pitch being created to sell Dimension on a reboot of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, while also sharing some awesome concept art. Behind the art was Paul Gerrard (Wrath of the Titans, Battle: Los Angeles), and were created for a teaser trailer* directed by Mike Le Han (“Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room”).
That was sort of the last we heard, until today. Bloody reader Fabien M. tipped me off to this Facebook, which teases an October 31 launch for the promised “pitch trailer” for Hellraiser: Origins. Gerrard created some absolutely incredible artwork to build up the launch, which also counts down on an official website.
Here’s a description of the pitch for August 2012: READ MORE

What would modern horror be without the man who brought us “Hellraiser” and “Candyman”, along with novels like Arabat, Thief of Always, and Books of Blood? Clive Barker’s latest comic series, “Next Testament”, fits right in with his canon of work, and it’s off to a wild start. If you’ve read Barker before, you know what to expect, if you haven’t, this is a great introduction to hid body of work. Check out an exclusive preview below for “Next Testament” #4. READ MORE

Newt Clements is my horror hero of the year for creating a Pinterest account jam-packed with the greatest “what if” art of 2013.
You see, Newt apparently likes McDonald’s Happy Meals as much as I did growing up. His focus is solely on creating imaginary Happy Meals that include characters from the greatest films of all time.
Included in his gallery are imaginary Happy Meals for Aliens, Hellraiser, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Demons, The Ring, Evil Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Bride of Frankenstein, Hostel, Piranha, Carrie, Jaws, Friday the 13th and many, many more (even TV like “The Walking Dead” and “Twin Peaks”).

This past weekend several of us BD staff were at the Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Convention to chat and meet with many of our readers (don’t worry, we’ll soon be hitting a ton more conventions, so if you want to meet us get ready!). While there, I wandered through the tables to see what fun wares were being sold by the horror-devoted merchants when I stumbled across Pyramid Gallery’s table of Hellraiser boxes, some of which were fully functioning music boxes! While none of them have the official music from composer Christopher Young (something that I’m told is being worked on), they were still beautifully crafted objects that I desperately wanted to bring home with me (if only I had a spare $175). I wanted to bring them to your attention as Max, the guy who creates them, is a super nice guy and truly does amazing work. Head on below to see a video of one of the boxes in action.
Also, make sure to ‘Like’ the official Pyramid Gallery Facebook page to see some beautiful photos! READ MORE
