As I was saying a few posts ago, the only way this reboot would see a dime of my money is if it was re-imagined. Today, one of the many website we like to browse for film news posted this outstanding pitch trailer for Hellraiser called Hellraiser: Origins. This lavishly fiendish piece of film, was directed by Mike Le Han (Mr’s Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room) and produced by Mike Le Han and Paul Gerrard(Wrath Of The Titans, Battle LA, TMNT).
Mind you, this isn’t just some fan film, the artist who worked on this trailer have several years experience in the film industry and on top of that, they love Hellraiser. Having guys like this do your film is much better than giving this to some director who is sitting back waiting for offers to come to him or her.
Folks, believe me when I tell you that these guys are coming at this franchise hard and by the looks of their website, they have been at it for awhile. There’s a lot of new imagery they’ve tossed in there, including a brand new look for our beloved Pinhead. Strange how a movie, so sinister, can be created with such love. I’d certainly hate to see this man’s hard work or the work of the crew behind this trailer, go unnoticed. If cooler heads prevail and Dimension Films doesn’t come at him with a “cease and desist“, I’d say his spot as director on this amazing franchise is as good as gold. Stay tuned to MITNG for more news about the reboot and other news regarding all the Hellraiser happenings.
Now if we could just get Ghost B.C. to do a song for this soundtrack.
