Go To Hell
Wanna go to Hell? It’s located in Hollywood, as if that was a big surprise. The upside of this is you’ll get to see the film short Hellraiser: Origins, the trailer of which has been languishing around for some time in the other Hell: the Internet.
Too bad H:O didn’t get made into a full movie; the re-imagined look of Pinhead (kind of like the Ed Sullivan of horror icons) is cooler than, uh, Hell. But you can see the rest of it at HollyShorts Film Festival tonight at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres at 9PM. I’d go but Hollywood is scarier than Hell.
Hellraiser: Origins was an ignored high-concept pitch to get made into a full-length re-casting of the 1987 classic Hellraiser, the lame sequels of which were an unfortunate byproduct of the original film’s huge success. You can read more about ‘em in the book The Hellraiser Films and their Legacy (2006) by Paul Kane. Unfortunately, the book does not contain any reference and/or pictures of me, despite my life being a living hell, and that I’ve been referred to as a “pinhead” by more than one grocery clerk.
