Clive Barker Expresses Distaste For New 'Hellraiser' Flick!

New postby Matt_Molgaard » Sun Aug 21, 2011 2:37 pm

Clive Barker is the original mastermind behind the deeply disturbing 1987 genre installment, Hellraiser. Based on Barker’s work of fiction, "The Hellbound Heart", Hellraiser quickly became a fan favorite, and thanks to its extreme gore and original concept, one of the most memorable horror films ever shot.


The latest franchise entry however, Hellraiser: Revelations, has been absolutely crucified by critics and those unfortunate enough to catch an early screening of the film.

Well, you can consider Barker himself one of the many viewers to be extremely disappointed by the picture. The world renown author just took to his twitter to share his thoughts on the flick, and well, you just have to read Clive’s stance on the film!

"Hello,my friends. I want to put on record that the flic out there using the word Hellraiser IS NO FUCKIN' CHILD OF MINE! I have NOTHING to do with the fuckin' thing. If they claim its from the mind of Clive Barker, it's a lie. It's not even from my butt-hole."

I used to cling to that old saying “any press is good press”; I’m not certain that’s the case in this instance!

Víctor García directed the latest Hellraiser picture, which hits DVD on October 18th.

Yeah, the trailer couldn't even hold my interest. I was waiting for something interesting and worthwhile to happen about half way through it. Definitely going to pass on seeing this failure.

I will still watch it. I know already I won't like it, but I mean, the last two Hellraisers before sucked, so I had given up hope in the series already.
Matt, are you going to do a piece on Hellraiser vs The Hellbound Heart? I personally love them both, but would like to see your thoughts on the matter.

It's good to see Pinhead taking center stage again, but seriously? No Doug Bradley? No original story? I think its only hope now is for the "so-bad-it's-hilarous" category, and what are the chances of that happening?
