As you may recall, Clive Barker was attached to remake Hellraiser back in 2014, and he actually did write a script that was delivered to Dimension Films. Instead of bringing that script to life, of course, Dimension made new sequel Hellraiser: Judgment, which needless to say didn’t do much to renew fan interest in what has long been a near-death franchise.
Clive Barker himself writing a remake of his own horror classic… now that’s an interesting approach, eh? So what would that iteration of a Hellraiser remake have been like, you may be wondering? In a new video over on YouTube, Mr. H Reviews digs into Barker’s unmade script, offering insights into Barker’s vision for a new take on his greatest creation.
“It follows near to a T the first movie… up until a point where it would then segue off and become something somewhat new… different… and worthy of the investment of time from the audience,” Mr. H begins his recap of the script, before laying out the entire plot in detail.
If you’ve never read the script, allow Mr. H to do all the work for ya…
