Hellraiser Documentary Details

New Hellraiser and Zombie Themed Documentaries ComingWith nearly every horror franchise receiving the documentary treatment these days, it's not surprising that Hellraiser is among them. Today, we've got some early details for you on behind-the-camera talent.

Dark Knight Pictures announces that Stefan Hutchinson (Halloween: 25 Years of Terror) will direct the definitive documentary with our good friend Ryan Rotten on scripting duties. Anthony Masi (His Name Was Jason) will handle producing details.

Really looking forward to this one. While I'd argue that there are only three films in the Hellraiser series (unless someone wants to release the longer cut of Bloodline), I'm really curious to see how the direct-to-video Dimension era is handled.

I stopped watching Hellraiser after the second one.

I personally love Part 3, but that's where the series should have ended.

Hellraiser III is still the second worst in the series (dethroned only by Hellworld). Just an awful, painful desecration of Barker's world. I can't believe some people like that shit.

Deader is not only the worst of the series, but it's also one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I'll gladly take Hell on Earth over that or any of Rick Bota's films.

"While I'd argue that there are only three films in the Hellraiser series..."

You mean to tell me that you're actually believing in HELLRAISER III - HELL ON EARTH"? Of course I, too, heard the rumors, but come on! Cyber-Cenobites that shoot CDs and have cameras for eyes?! I think all that nonsense was made up by some dude who hit his bong a little too hard while watching a double feature of HELLRAISER and that goofy flick where Dolph Lundgren is a white-haired alien.

As for this documentary, I have nothing against it and wish the involved parties well, but as far as I'm concerned, all the questions I had about the two films in this franchise were answered by the numerous commentaries, interviews and other assorted extras on the Anchor Bay DVDs.

I'm curious as to what the third Hellraiser film MattFini speaks of is. Even though I like Inferno, I don't really consider it a Hellraiser film. As far as most fans are concerned, there are only TWO Hellraiser films. Hell on Earth isn't the worst one but it still sucks gerbil balls.

I think one word could sum up what happened with Parts 3 and 4. HOLLYWOOD. Regardless, really looking forward to this documentary. Hellraiser is one of my favorite horror films. Hellbound is pretty good and and I've always liked Inferno. I know a lot of people don't like it, but it's lightyears better than the trilogy of shit that came after it.

They could make an entire documentary on how Peter Atkins got screwed on part 3 and the disaster that was part 4. That would make for some interesting viewing. If you go over to Clive Barkers official site they have a long essay written by Peter Atkins regarding what went wrong with part 3 that is a very informative read.
