For those that grew up in the 80’s on a steady diet of horror film franchises, most of which featured arguably the most iconic looking movie maniacs since the classic Universal monsters era, there’s always been that morbid curiosity to uncover all the behind-the-scenes inner workings of those indelible pictures. With retrospective documentaries already out there on Halloween (25 Years Of Terror), Friday The 13th (His Name Was Jason) and with Never Sleep Again, (the A Nightmare On Elm Street doc) not to mention The Psycho Legacy both on the horizon, it’s a pretty good time to be a genre fan.
Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers, Norman Bates… they’re all covered. So it was only a matter of time before Pinhead got the extensive and exhaustive profile treatment as well. At the helm of Unearthed: The Hellraiser Saga is director Stefan Hutchinson (whom recently scripted original comic stories for both Day Of The Dead and Halloween), with Ryan “Rotten” Turek (managing editor over at Shock Till You Drop.com) writing and Anthony Masi serving as producer. Much to the delight of Hellraiser fans, Clive Barker will also be involved with the production by creating a brand new cenobite for the documentary.
