Hellraiser: The Series is ready to tempt you….

April 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Horror fans beware, Hellraiser is coming to a TV screen near you soon.

That’s right, our favourite Pinhead is being adapted for television in Hellraiser: The Series, according to Variety, thanks to Sonar Entertainment and executive producer Larry Kupin, through his company New World , who in turn brought us Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II.

Sonar teased the new series thus: “One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut. For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him. Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.”

As yet, no word when we are likely to see this.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
