Different Story, Same World: Lussier, Farmer on the Hellraiser Remake

Shock Till You Drop says:

At the time of this writing, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer are in the middle of scripting Hellraiser for Dimension Films. To use the word "remake" to describe the project seems a bit wrong, as it appears the duo are crafting more of a "reboot."

"We're keeping it within the world of the box. What the box is and what the box does," Lussier told Shock Till You Drop today during a Drive Angry-related interview. Farmer interjected, "Clive's film is very personal. That's a difficult story for us to come in and re-tell."

"To go in and tell the story of Frank and the family wouldn't be right," added Lussier. "What we went in to pitch with at Dimension was to come at it from a different angle, but go into the same world and see things you haven't been able to see in the other movies. There have been so many films, how can we make this one different?"

Hellraiser is great. I grew up[ on 80s horror movies like Nightmare, Friday and Halloween but Hellraiser was actually the one horror movie my father wouldn't let me watch because he said it was far too adult for me. It wasn't until I was much older that I had seen it and I understood why he didn't want me seeing it when I was a kid. Now it's nothing compared to some of the torture porn horror movies that are out now.

I actually did watch it when I was a kid. Never was my favorite (Halloween always took that spot). But it was alright. They started running the franchise into the ground I thought though.

I have every movie in the series and I 'd have to say that The original was the best but I really liked Bloodlines alot so that one would be a close second.
