Hollywood's Turned Hellraiser Into Doucheraiser


From toplesstrobot, everyone who's ever enjoyed the works of Clive Barker in general or the Hellraiser movies in particular -- my apologies. Because in no way did you deserve Hellraiser: Revelations, the new movie that has turned the once proud franchise into the latest made-for-teen horror knock-off. Lessee... cast entirely with young douchebags? Check. A needless Blair Witch/Cloverfield shaky cam motif? Check. No sense of actual horror whatsoever? Check and check. Christ, even the new Pinhead looks like he's covered in Axe Body Spray, which is wrong it's actually horrifying. So in that sense... yay?
