Here’s a horror franchise that’s been scrambling to stay alive for years now with 3 solid (if decidedly B Grade) originals, then a slew of utterly awful direct to dvd tosh that culminated in last years horrendous HELLRAISER REVELATIONS. There’s was on again off again talks of a complete franchise reboot and Clive Barker was involved if I remember correctly – well now Sonar Entertainment are developing a TV series and here’ what they had to say:
One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him. Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide. – http://sonarent.com/titles/hellraiser
Oh Pinhead – will you ever get retribution!?!
