And right about now if you listen closely, you can hear the sounds of Phantasm fans around the world screaming! Rest easy, people! We're not talking about a remake or even that long rumored sequel.

A few weeks back I sat down with my Hellraiser Blu-ray, mindful of the fact that it was soon to be dusted off and dragged back to the multiplexes for a whole new generation of horror fans. It’s a hard film to picture existing with modern day sensibilities.

I guess the first bit of news that should be mentioned from AICN’s interview with Martyrs director Pascal Laugier is that an American remake of Martyrs is already in the works. It is, of course, not surprising in the least considering how well received the film has been since its festival debut, but it's a little disappointing nonetheless.

Well, it’s official; Martyrs helmer Pascal Laugier is in negotiations with Bob & Harvey Weinstein to write and direct the remake of Hellraiser, which you should recall was once in the hands of the French duo behind Inside before their take on the material proved too freaky.
