Clive Barker might get the rights to Hellraiser back. Friday the 13th Part 3 star turned Entertainment Lawyer, Larry Zerner tweeted about the issue.
He writes: “For those of you who like the Friday the 13th lawsuit, now Clive Barker has sued for a declaratory judgment that he can terminate his 1986 transfer and get back his rights to the Hellraiser franchise.”
Check out his tweet below.
Barker’s original cult classic sports a 70% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Elevated by writer-director Clive Barker’s fiendishly unique vision, Hellraiser offers a disquieting – and sadistically smart – alternative to mindless gore.
Sexual deviant Frank (Sean Chapman) inadvertently opens a portal to hell when he tinkers with a box he bought while abroad. The act unleashes gruesome beings called Cenobites, who tear Frank’s body apart. When Frank’s brother (Andrew Robinson) and his wife, Julia (Clare Higgins), move into Frank’s old house, they accidentally bring what is left of Frank back to life. Frank then convinces Julia, his one-time lover, to lure men back to the house so he can use their blood to reconstruct himself.
