Clive Barker Thought That 'Hellraiser: Revelations' Trailer Sucked Too

So here’s the long and short of it, in order for Dimension to keep the rights to the “Hellraiser” franchise, they need to make something fast. And so they did. And the resulting “Hellraiser: Revelations” as you can see below looks every bit like the cheap rights-retaining production it set out to be. Marking the first time Doug Bradley isn’t portraying the iconic Pinhead — some guy named Jay Gillespie steps in instead — the franchise is now scraping the bottom of the barrel with the cheapie sequel specialist Víctor García (“Mirrors 2,” “Return to House on Haunted Hill“) being given $75 and an empty warehouse to shoot the found footage film that reveals the only thing that fits the Dimension Extreme label it’s being released under is how extraordinarily shitacular it looks. And it looks like someone showed it to series creator Clive Barker. And he’s not happy.

“Hello, my friends. I want to put on record that the flic [sic] out there using the word Hellraiser is no fuckin’ child of mine,” he told his followers on Twitter (via STYD). “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.”

In case you still care, a bunch of people you never heard of named Daniel Buran, Jolene Anderson, Nick Eversman and Stephen Smith Collins act terribly in the film that will go VOD on September 1st, get a limited theatrical run on September 2 and then hit DVD on December 18th after everyone has pirated it by then. Watch the trailer below.

Jacques sucks cacques for leaving out bloodline.
3 was cheesy and campy, but still on an acceptable level. Part 4 (Bloodlines) was a return to form. My personal favorite after part 1.

The cerebral bullshit after that was meh.

But revelations was a total turd. Somehow managing to be worse than Jackie Earle Haley’s nightmare reboot.
That is saying ALOT.


fuck this horseshit; what a joke.


What a pile of shit.


What the hell did they film this on? It looks like a home movie.

Jacques DeMolay

Fuck this non-Doug Bradley imposter. Bradley-Pinhead 4 Lyfe, yo!

Seriously, even the ones with Doug were shit-tastic after like the 3rd one, but this just looks like a whole new level of turdsville.


Facial expression at 01:32 is priceless!!!!
