Hellraiser and it's first sequel Hellbound: Hellraiser II are incredible films that hold a very special place in many horror fans hearts. They bought possibly the last horror villain to reach the dizzying heights of infamy previously reached by Freddy, Jason and Michael. And that particular character, even though his screen time was rather short, became an icon of horror.
I will never forget accompanying my uncle to the video store to rent the original Hellraiser, him telling me how the man had nails in his head. My mind conjured up all sorts of images, and when I saw the film, although I didn't understand what was going on, I loved the bloodshed and the Engineer monster, and all of the Cenobites. This is where my love for all things Clive Barker began.
Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II is an upcoming documentary that will feature twenty-five interviews and behind the scenes footage from each film. The makers now need to support to complete production and post-production. It will uncover the history, making of and unknown details of the first two films in the Hellraiser series.
I am sure you will all be interested in seeing this happen, so if you are, go and pledge what you can, or if you can't pledge anything, spread the word, and lets help make this dream documentary a reality for all of us followers of The Order of the Gash!
