If you even had an inkling that this film was happening at all, were your expectations for the ninth installment of Hellraiser like ours? We challenge you to accept our dare to watch the trailer for Hellraiser: Revelations and not feel like you're sinning. This film was cut-and-pasted together in record time on a tiny budget (estimated at under a million bucks), and plays out like a fan film.
The plot finds the legendary Pinhead (originally played by Doug Bradley), portrayed by Stefan Smith Collins, brought back to the world of the living by two backpackers, Steve and Nico. While in Mexico, the two look for an exciting new experience, and stumble across the infamous Hellraiser puzzlebox. More than hell is raised in this stinkfest that has even angered Clive Barker, the original author and director of Hellraiser.
Venting his frustrations on Twitter, Barker blasted the production by saying, "I want to put on record that the flick out there using the word 'Hellraiser' is no fuckin' child of mine! I have nothing to do with the fuckin' thing. If they claim it's 'from the mind of Clive Barker,' it's a lie. It's not even from my butthole. Ouch! Sadly enough, he's not lying, and you can see for yourself once you press play.
Directed by Victor Garcia, Hellraiser: Revelations stars Nick Eversman (Vampires Suck), Jay Gillespie (2001 Maniacs), Jolene Anderson, Sanny Van Heteren, and Stefan Smith Collins. It will go straight-to-DVD on October 18th.
