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.
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.
It seems the age of prequels is upon us all. George Lucas (perhaps infamously) started it just over a decade ago, and now it seems to be in full swing. We have a prequel to The Thing just a couple of weeks away, an adaptation of The Hobbit (a prequel to The Lord of the Rings) filming and a prequel to The Wizard of Oz on the way. And who knows how many more are in development that we don't know about yet?
