I will always remember the first time I witnessed Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. Okay, at the time I wasn’t even ten years old, but my dad would always let me watch horror flicks with him, but forewarn me about some pretty grim things that were about to be shown. One time I missed his warning and there it was, this grotesque creature being reborn through the floorboards, and I swear I could not sleep for a week, but it stayed with me and Hellraiser quickly became one of my favorite films of all time.
Granted, throughout the years the series may have turned into something of a joke with each passing film getting progressively worse than the one before it, but Hellraiser and Hellraiser II still stand the test of time and still manage to be totally awesome.
So, as I’m sure you guys are aware, there is a documentary on the horizon entitled Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II, and today we have scored the first official trailer which you can view below.
From the Press Release:
Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II is a feature length documentary uncovering the history, making of and unknown details of the making of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II films.
With interviews and testimonies from those most closely involved, we hope to bring a comprehensive insight to these classic cult films.
Following the story of the films from their inception through production to release and the their subsequent lives and growing fan base, we aim to show fans and those less familiar with the films both the technical skills, the creative idea, the symbolism and the legacy of these movies.
Delving deep into the director’s vision and ambitions for the project we’ll be exploring where he came from, where his career had taken him and the inspiration for the story and world he created. We’ll be telling the story of his journey of making them and how close they came to his vision at the time and how he feels about them over 25 years later.

I can’t wait for this, it looks set to be awesome. Let us know if you’ll be keeping an eye on this one?
