I am thrilled with this, as Hellraiser has always been one of my favorite films (the first two, anyway). I read on both wikipedia and IMDB that Barker will be remaking it to keep more in line with the original story (The Hellbound Heart). I will really be looking forward to this and really hope that Doug Bradley reprises his role as "Pinhead". Clive Barker has the incredible skill of making the sensual horrific and creating evil characters that are multi-dimensional.  i can't wait to see it!

I am a huge Hellraiser fan, too. I got to meet Doug Bradley at Spookyworld in Mass., it was a great day for me!

Pinhead is such a classic horror creation. Definitely looking forward to this.

I know what you mean, Stacy. They're remaking "Halloween" and "Footloose", too.

I think Halloween comes at the end of this month, Rob Zombie directs, I believe. I enjoyed House of 1000 Corpses, very freaky. It'll be interesting to see how he handles such a classic. i jusr recently watched the original again and , man, it is still creepy!

Dear Holiwood,

Stop trying to remake horror classics. They are classic for a reason. You are not going to be able to improve them. Stop trying. "Better"special effects don't interest me. I'd rather have you release the original.

Seroisly, am I the only one that HATES the remakes?
