Hellrasier Reboot

I'm a big fan of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 and if only them existed then I would be against this idea. That said... there are more of Hellraiser films and they are
A T R O C I O U S
So that makes me actually look forward to a possible remake. The series deserver more good movies because of the great idea that was butchered with the (75 or whatever) sequels.
 
Yeah they are horrid past 2..a reboot is a must to attract the talent and dollars a worthy take on this series should have...

really should get Barker on board.
 
I've only seen the second one. Which I quite liked. I think the concept if rife for a reboot (for once!).

Watch the first, it's far better than the second one.

I used to like the second one back when I saw it in middle school but I watched it recently and the film is a bit of a mess and the Dr. Channard character, when he's a cenobite is laughable.

The first one is leagues better than the second one, but the thing about the second one is that it actually expands the story in a logical way and feels like a real sequel. While the third and subsequent movies just made the story a random slasher saga, the first two has their own grotesque aura and uniqueness.
For this possible remake I really hope they get what made Hellraiser so good.

I totally agree that the second movie felt like a real sequel and expanded the mythology but I just didn't care for how cheesy the Channard cenobite was in the film. It was all that yelling he did throughout the last act of the film that got annoying. If they would have toned that down I would have enjoyed the film more. I bought Hellraiser on Blu-ray and was considering getting Hellbound but decided not to because I don't think I would watch it all that much.

As for the remake. The original is one of my top five favorite horror films and I'm not too excited for the remake all that much. That production art does look pretty damn cool but I would rather this film be another story involving Pinhead rather than redoing Barker's story "The Hellbound Heart".
 
I don't think all sequels were horrid. Other than 2, I also enjoyed no4's bravado and ambition, as well as 5 for trying to do a noir-like horror story. The rest were balls, though.
