HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT Director Gary J. Tunnicliffe Talks Future of the HELLRAISER Franchise

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been sharing a series of videos produced by UK film critic and academic Mr. H; he’s gotten his hands on the notoriously-hard-to-get screenplay for Clive Barker’s unmade 2014 Hellraiser reboot. The explorations have been treasure troves of unearthly delights, postulating what could have been with a new mythology for the Lament Configuration and a new version of the Hell Priest, Pinhead.

Today, Mr. H released the first part of an ongoing interview with Hellraiser: Judgment writer/director Gary J. Tunnicliffe. Believe it or not, Judgment is the best of the straight-to-DVD chapters in the Hellraiser saga—by a long shot. The film was bolstered in no small part by the introduction of a new crew of pseudo-Cenobites who joined the OG’s Pinhead and Chatterer.
