Think that new Hellraiser trailer sucks? So does Clive Barker

Clive Barker got a look at the trailer for Hellraiser: Revelations—which purports to be "inspired" by his horror classic—and his NSFW response is more of a classic than this new movie will likely ever turn out to be.

After one of Barker's Twitter followers pointed out that the film appears to show "a total disrespect for your work," the writer responded with an absolutely wonderful mini-rant, in which he states that "If they claim it's from the mind of Clive Barker, it's a lie."

Check out his tweets below.

Apparently, the Hellraiser sequel was made on the quick in order for Dimension to retain the rights to the franchise, resulting in this repudiated trailer.

The film will have a limited release starting September 2—but after everything you've read and seen above, are you going to bother heading to the theater?
