Hellraiser remake to be handled by My Bloody Valentine duo Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer

10.20.2010

There was some minor panic the other day when a rumor went around that Dimension's long-planned remake of Clive Barker's HELLRAISER might be going in more of a teen-friendly direction.

But it actually sounds like the project is in good horror hands after all. STYD says that Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier, the writer-director team behind MY BLOODY VALENTINE and the upcoming DRIVE ANGRY, will be the ones bringing Pinhead and his agony inflicters into the mortal realm for some tasty chaos. (And likely in 3D.)

There were reportedly a number of recent pitches by various talent vying for the remake job, but Lussier already has a long history with the studio -- he worked with them on the SCREAM trilogy and numerous other movies, including an attempt last year to squeeze HALLOWEEN 3 into his and Farmer's schedule before making DRIVE ANGRY.

And it's safe to say this HELLRAISER won't be toned down a notch. Knowing what I do of Lussier (disclosure: he's been attached to direct my own action-horror script CONDITION DEAD for a while), there's no way he'd want to make it unless they could go crazy with the crimson and carnage.

Extra Tidbit: Now that Amber Heard rumor makes a bit more sense...

I am all about this! The new "My Bloody Valentine" was excellent! While I'd prefer this not to happen, if it must, then I'm fine with this choice.

OK - seeing as the writer of this article obviously has a personal, invested interested in this director, can any of you shmoe's tell me if this is a good choice?

I haven't seen MBV and I don't believe I've seen any of his other actual work so I'm not really sure how to feel about this.

EDIT: yep, after further investigation this is a terrible choice, and the writer is just being a kiss ass because of his personal interest.

You want some advice? Make your own fucking movie rather than

Hellraiser was the only horror movie I couldn't watch when I was a kid because it was too scary. I always respected it for that.

I won't watch remakes on principle. I won't be there. Even if it looks brilliant. Which I doubt it could.

HATED BLOODY VALENTINE 3D...

Worst gimmicky 3D since Freddys Dead or Jaws 3D. "Ohhh it looks like the eye ball is coming right at you". No it looks like bad cinematography and lame visual efx.

Lussier is a fairly accomplished & talented editor,

Oh, Todd Farmer...the guy who wrote Jason X, and was his idea entirely that he pitched to the studio to put Jason in space...terrific.

Eh, as if any of the Ft13th movies were any good. Jason X was at least one of the most fun.

I adore how every horror geek has dignity and anger toward a remake, they hear one name, and suddenly everyone starts saying "Yes! Now I'm happy!" and "This has my full support!" I mean what happened to the people complaining the original was so flawless?

Flip floppers. I'm still against this I don't care who they have on this.

Who says that they are the same people flip-flopping on the issue? You are aware that an unlimited amount of people are allowed to view and comment on this site - right?

You are against essentially every movie ever made so...that's really no surprise to me there.

Sweet, I was worried a teenie bopper version of Hellraiser was going to suck. Glad they have the guy who brought us such classics as "Dracula 2000", and "White Noise 2" on the job. Funny seeing the guy writing the article kissing his ass because hes "attached" to his film.
