Despite its creepy awesome origins, the Hellraiser franchise has fallen on some hard times as of late, with terrible sequel after terrible sequel churned out straight to DVD. But there is hope—and here's our first look at the bloody reboot that might finally right the ship.
GeekTyrant has come across some concept art developed for the remake, which offers a glimpse at the new Pinhead, as well as some creepy Hell-scapes.
The art, created by Paul Gerrard (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans), is intended for a pitch teaser he and up-and-coming director Mike Le Han will be showing off to Dimension Films.
We still don't know much about the story they're putting together for this new version, but it'd be tough to disappoint fans more than the last few sequels have. So it should be a step in the right direction if they plan on being even remotely faithful to the Clive Barker classic.
If all goes well, these pics could be the basis for the next generation of Hellraiser.
What do you think? Does this look more like the Hellraiser you remember?
