Interview: ‘Inkubus’ and ‘Detroit Rock City’ Screenwriter Carl Dupre
space

Halloween is just around the corner and screenwriter Carl Dupre has plans to make it as scary as he can. His latest movie, the Robert Englund-starring Inkubus, hits theaters across the Unites States this month and its writer promises to gross you out, but in a good way.

As well as writing a handful of horror sequels (including Prophecy 3: The Ascent, Hellraiser: Hellseeker, Hellraiser: Hellworld) and being a prolific short story writer, Dupre is also a dab hand at comedy. I have been a fan of Dupre’s writing since he wrote one of my favorite movies, the hilarious KISS-centric Detroit Rock City. In a recent interview with Dupre, the screenwriter gave me some insight as to how he wrote Detroit Rock City, what is was like on set, and getting to meet KISS.

But first things first: horror.

Geeks of Doom: So, Inkubus – how did that come about?

Check Out These Cenobites Designs From The On-Hold ‘Hellraiser’ Remake
space
BAADASSSSS!   |

The Hellraiser remake that has been gestating for years at Dimension Films has once again hit a roadblock. It was recently revealed that the powers that be at the studio have put the project on hold for the time being and that Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, the director and writer (respectively) who had produced several different script drafts during their time working on the remake, were no longer on the project.

Gary J. Tunnicliffe, the prolific special effects makeup artist who had worked on nearly every Hellraiser sequel made since 1992’s Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth as well as many of Dimension’s direct-to-video genre offerings among others, was given the job of redesigning the series’ iconic monsters the Cenobites at his company Two Hours in the Dark. He also penned the script for the latest DTV Hellraiser sequel Revelations, which recently had a trailer released that drew strongly negative reactions from the horror fan community, and that’s putting it mildly. (You can read about that HERE .) It’s clear that Revelations was put together in a hurry so that Dimension wouldn’t lose the Hellraiser rights before they could get the sequel into theaters. (The Roger Corman-produced Fantastic Four movie from 1994 that was shelved right before its planned theatrical release was created under similar circumstances.)

Hellraiser

Despite a series of sequels that can best be described as trash, Hellraiser is still very much a beloved horror franchise, in desperate need of a new take and a new breath of fresh air.

However, that bit of fresh air just got a little less interesting.

Shock Til You Drop recently spoke to the pair of Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer (My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry), who revealed that they had left their long-discussed remake, which has been in the works for just around a year now.

Remember that trailer for the upcoming low-budget sequel Hellraiser: Revelations, the ninth installment in the totally-run-its-course Hellraiser film franchise?

Well, Hellraiser creator Clive Barker saw the new trailer and took to Twitter to make sure everyone knows that not only does this new offering NOT come from his mind, but that it doesn’t even come from his ass.

Hello,my friends. I want to put on record that the flic out there using the word Hellraiser IS NO FUCKIN’ CHILD OF MINE!

I have NOTHING to do with the fuckin’ thing. If they claim its from the mind of Clive Barker,it’s a lie. It’s not even from my butt-hole.

Comic Review: Clive Barker’s Hellraiser #1

Clive Barker's Hellraiser #1Hellraiser #1
Written by Clive Barker and Christopher Monfette
Art by Leonardo Manco
Colors by Charlie Kirchoff
Lettering by Travis Lanham
Cover A: Tim Bradstreet
Cover B: Nick Percival
Cover C: Clive Barker
Price $3.99
Release date: March 23, 2011

It’s always funny to hear that with all the Hellraiser movies out there, Clive Barker has only been involved in the first movie, and the novella that movie was based on. And that’s it. And this is the name most often connected with the series. So I’m sure it’s exciting for horror fans to learn that Barker has returned to the series that made him famous, as he has with the new comic series from BOOM! Studios. It’s been almost 25 years since he last worked on the series, so now it’s time to see if he has picked up where he left off.

Anyone familiar with the movies will be right at home with this comic. It quickly sets up the familiar elements of the series: the puzzle box, the Cenobites, lots and lots of bodies without any skin — they’re all here within the first 10 pages. Hellraiser #1 sees Pinhead, the most famous of the Hellraiser characters, as he tries to make some kind of deal with a powerful force. It also brings back a character that will be known to people that know the series, but others will need to check the Hellraiser Wikipedia entry.

Check That: Writer/Director Duo Todd Farmer & Patrick Lussier To Handle ‘Hellraiser’ Reboot

The Movie God   |  @   |

Recently, panic struck horror fans when it was revealed that Christian E. Christiansen was being brought in to direct the Dimension Films reboot of the Clive Barker classic, Hellraiser. Christiansen has a reputation for delivering teen-friendly PG-13 horror films, and if you’ve seen Hellraiser, you know that this combination would heed devastating results.

Now it turns out that this panic may have been a bit premature. New reports indicate that it will not be Christiansen directing the project, but that the team of writer Todd Farmer and director Patrick Lussier have in fact been signed on to make things happen.

Christian E. Christiansen Confirmed For ‘Hellraiser’ Remake; Might Go For PG-13 Rating
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |

At the end of the summer, it was reported that Dimension Films had been in talks with Christian E. Christiansen to direct their planned remake of Hellraiser, but that negotiations had ended.

Tonight, the folks over at Bloody Disgusting are reporting that Christiansen (The Roommate) is now confirmed to direct the film, and that the studio wants Amber Heard (Zombieland, The Stepfather) for the female lead.

The site states that they’ve received word that the studio wants to make this version of Hellraiser for “teens,” meaning they’ll be trying for a PG-13 rating. Putting Christiansen at the helm seems to follow this pattern, as he’s just finished up on the PG-13 horror The Roommate, which looks to be like a watered-down teen version of Single White Female.
