Hellraiser Remake
I've just read that the original Hellraiser is being remade in conjunction with Clive Barker who is saying that he's happy about having the extra money to do stuff that he couldn't do before.

As a fan of the original I'm actually quite happy about this but what do the rest of you think?

I'm very happy as well.  The original was made small budget and I think a big budget remake would allow Barker to expand his ideas and not be quite so limited.

The perfect scenario would be if they somehow could add new visual effects to the scenes at the end of the original film that now have pretty c**ppy effects and don't do the remake.  

I'm a huge fan of the Hellraiser series and I own all the films on DVD, but i'm not a big fan of doing a remake, even if Clive is involved. Is he really supporting this? Hmmm... They better cast Bradley as Pinhead then, or else it just wouldn't be Hellraiser.

No no no! I can't belive this! AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Of course Clive is involved.  I don't think you can do a remake without the twisted mind of Barker.

Ask me again after I see the remake. Then I'll pass judgement. The one horror film I hope is never remade is Halloween.

Is it a full blown remake or just a re-imaging?

As far as I know it's now a scene for scene remake like Psycho 1998 for instance. It's more of a re-imaging.

I'm also a huge fan of the first one and hope the charm of it will not be lost in the translation. At least Barker is writing it - hopefully he will produce it as well giving him more creative controll....

correction: my last reply should read "As far as I know it's NOT a scene for scene remake like Psycho 1998 for instance. It's more of a re-imaging." Typo

They had better not make a PG-13 waste of time rubbish version - such material needs are minimum!

I love the original, I watched it recently, I see no need for a remake... maybe go all George Lucas on it and update the effects and add some new scenes, drop it back into the theaters, and viola... a new franchise.

I remember watching part 1 and it seems like only a little bit later part two came out.  These were some good stuff.  I'd like a box set of all of them, but we know that can never happen.
