“Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser & Hellbound: Hellraiser II” is an upcoming documentary by Cult Screenings Co. The film will explore the creative process involved in making the Hellraiser franchise films, considered some of the scariest horror classics of all time.

“Hellraiser” was an instant hit among horror fans in 1987, when Clive Barker adapted his novella, “The Hellbound Heart,” for the silver screen, then went on to direct the project. The documentary is expected to be filled with unknown facts and secrets from over four hours of interviews with such esteemed personages as Doug Bradley, the actor who portrayed Pinhead; Andrew Robinson, the actor who played Larry in “Hellraiser”; actor Kenneth Cranham, who first appeared as Dr. Philip Channard and also as the Channard Cenobite; Clare Higgins, the actress who played Julia Cotton in both films; and now, from writer-director Clive Barker himself.

The Moviepilot website has documented the filmmakers excitement about having Barker’s involvement. Producer Gary Smart has noted that while the “other cast and crew members have been amazing to speak to” and have provided significant insights, Barker’s contributions will make the film “definitive.” Director K. John McDonagh was grateful to the director for the “amazing chance to converse with a creative and inspiring genius.”
