'Hellraiser' Documentary Begins Filming


Good news, "Hellraiser" fanatics! A new behind-the-scenes documentary has just gone into production. Bloody Disgusting reported that film maker, K. John McDonagh, is working on "Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II."

The documentary will provide a special look at the first two films and feature interviews from Barbie Wilde, Simon Bamford, Oliver Parker, Nicholas Vince Mark Coulier and more.

From the official website:

“Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II" is a feature length documentary uncovering the history, making of and unknown details of the making of Clive Barker’s "Hellraiser" and "Hellbound: Hellraiser II" films. With interviews and testimonies from those most closely involved, we hope to bring a comprehensive insight to these classic cult films. Following the story of the films from their inception through production to release and the their subsequent lives and growing fan base, we aim to show fans and those less familiar with the films both the technical skills, the creative idea, the symbolism and the legacy of these movies. Delving deep into the director’s vision and ambitions for the project we’ll be exploring where he came from, where his career had taken him and the inspiration for the story and world he created. We’ll be telling the story of his journey of making them and how close they came to his vision at the time and how he feels about them over 25 years later. We want to hear how the cast and crew feel now and felt at the time about the idea, the production and the final film when it was completed as well as how they were influenced by the production and Clive and how the films have contributed to their futures. Through a series of candid interviews, behind the scenes footage, stills and a look a promotional material from the time and the merchandise now available, we will create a truly engaging and informative piece, with a few laughs and a bit of gossip thrown in for good luck.

With the recent news of a Clive Barker penned "Hellraiser" reboot, this documentary is as sweet as the sound of razors through flesh. Here's a little preview to peak your curiosity...just be prepared for the consequences.
