The 1987 Dimension horror classic Hellraiser, is slated for a remake.
Writer-Director PASCAL LAUGIER, is in final negotiations to write and direct a re-imaging of Clive Barker’s legendary horror film.
Hellraiser, is the classic 80’s horror film that introduced Pinhead, and the Cenobites to the world. The Cenobites were also the inspiration for “The Borg” on Star Trek, The Next Generation.
Pascal Laugier’s horror film Martyr’s, stirred major controversy in his native France, even receiving a 18+ rating. Several people reportedly fainted during the midnight screenings at the Toronto Film festival.
For the past several years, Dimension has been looking for the perfect writer-director to re launch Hellraiser, and I think Pascal Laugier is perfect for the job.
“This is a dream project for me”, Laugier said, “I know Clive Barker’s work very well, and I would never betray what he has done. Fans are expecting a definitive Hellraiser, and I don’t want to take that away from them.”
I remember watching Hellraiser when it came out in 87, and it was clearly a disturbing film. The horrific images we’re clearly years ahead of the times. I havnt seen Martyrs, but if its as disturbing as it sounds, Hellraiser could be the next benchmark in horror films.
What do you think, ready for a new take on Hellraiser? I have to wonder who will play the next incarnation of Pinhead ? Better not be Samuel Jackson !!!
