I didn’t even know they were remaking Clive Barker’s “Hellraiser”. Or actually, I was hoping they wouldn’t be remaking Barker’s “Hellraiser”. But what the hell, they’re going to do it, so whatever. News from the blokes at Bloody-Disgusting is that the upcoming remake has nabbed its directors — Frenchies Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, whose film “Inside” has been making the festival rounds, and has been snatched up by the Weinsteins to be butchered — er, I mean, released in the States. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Out of all the news we’ve brought you over the past several years, this has got to be one of the best… Bloody-Disgusting learned exclusively that both Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury have officially signed on to helm the remake of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser for Dimension Films! If you’ve been keeping up with us during TIFF, you’d know that we flipped over the duo’s horror film, Inside, which the Weinstein’s acquired in Cannes. Just wait until you see this movie, it’s going to restore your faith in this remake.
I’m not so attached to the Hellraiser franchise that I don’t like the idea of a remake. Although to be honest, I did like the last few sequels. They were actually pretty good.
