The mid-credit scenes totally fucked them up.

This is the second time in 2 days that I've heard about mid-credit scenes in a horror movie that I had absolutely no clue about!  (The first was Better Watch Out)

How gory is Happy Death Day?  Wife and I have some interest in renting it, but neither one of us is a horror fan, so if it's heavy on gore, we won't get through it.  We rent horror fillm once a... um, decade.  I'll watch a horror movie once in a while if it's on SyFy or TNT or whatever and has been edited for cable.  Actually, some of those direct-to-video movies SyFy used to air showed wayyyyy more gore than i wanted to see.  Still have unfond memories of the Beast of Bray County or whatever that low budget werewolf flick was called.  SyFy's tv cut showed a werewolf chowing down on a blond and basically chewing her torso into two pieces.  Yuckkk..  Would have been really unhappy if I walked in and one of my kids was watching thart

Then again, we sent them to catholic school, so they've probably seen worse. 

Anyway, Happy Death Day looks kinda clever.  Is it more spooky atmospherics or more people getting knifed in the head and having their brain fall out?

Another Spawn... you gotta be kidding me. Speaking of horror comics, when is somebody gonna do a good version of Faust? They should just get Jorg Buttgereit to direct and have script control and everything will be okay. (Hell, that might work for Spawn, actually)

Were there more shitty versions of Faust than just the late nineties Brian Yuzna one?

Naw, I think that's the only one. And boy was it shitty. 

EDIT: All the same I must admit it had to be a chore to try and make a movie that has Faust's source material. I mean there's a splash page of a woman with a snake coming out of her asshole and people chopping each other up in the background yelling "LOVE YOU DEVIL!" Not even Brian Yuzna could tackle that.

It is not very gore heavy at all nor is there a lot off nudity in it.  TBH, most of the violence is rather cartoonish and of course there is plenty of foul language and violence.

I probably could've taken my scary movie loving 14 year old daughter to it and not have been considered to be a horrible father.

HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT (dir. Gary J. Tunnicliffe, st. Paul T. Taylor, Heather Langenkamp) 

If I have to tell you this is NSFW you are an idiot

The Hellraiser franchise has run the gambit from slasher movie to torture porn. 

I'd like to see someone go back to Square One and make a faithful adaptation of The Hellbound Heart and put an end to the vain attempt to extend the freshness date of Pinhead.

Dimension has been attempting to get a reboot involving Barker off the ground for years, but they have to keep making garbage low-budget sequels to maintain the rights. This new one looks bad, but it at least looks like a Hellraiser movie. I am a minor apologist for some of the early 2000s ones where they just took a horror script laying around and threw Pinhead into them. They were at least fun.

I haven't seen a full Hellraiser since III and the only one after I've seen anything off was part of IV (the one Kevin Yagher had Alan Smithee'd). If one of my friends decides to Redbox it, I might give it a chance. Take in mind Doug Bradley isn't even involved with this one because they wouldn't let him read the script or something else equally stupid regarding secrecy. 

Event Horizon should count as a Hellraiser sequel, btw

I'm happy about this too, but the problem is that Doug Bradley's Pinhead is such a huge horror icon that studios don't have any real incentive to go back to Barker's premise.

I think we'll continue to get shit sequels until Clive is fully invested in a reboot..  He should definitely write and produce, but maybe he should let someone else direct since he hasn't sat in that chair in ages.

I know what I'm searching google images for. I think the only other time I saw the guy (who played Faust) was some kind of dog food or chew toy commercial. Do with that trivia what you will.

I've seen the Wrong Turn sequel where Bradley is the inbred clan's human uncle more times than I've seen any of the bastardized Hellraiser sequels. The one involving Lance Henriksen and some virtual reality game unleashing Pinhead was the worst, wasn't it? I'm basing that off of nothing other than the premise since if I have seen fifteen minutes of any of them, it was unintentional. The one with Detective Heisman Trophy fuckup Joe Kane seemed like it would probably be the least ill-advised of a bad bunch.

Not even close.

Inferno was the worst.

Here is why.

I once subjected my old movie watching club homies to a double feature of Hellraiser:Bloodlines and Jason X.  I put Jason X on last because it's the more fun of the two, plus 80% of that group were gun owners.

I give Jason X a pass because it is self aware that it is parody of the entire franchise, yet it has the good taste to contain one of the most brutal kills I have ever seen in a slasher movie.

Hellraiser:  Bloodlines takes itself too seriously and is just painful to watch.

Neither Naked Valentina Vargas nor Awesome Cenobite Valentina Vargas could save that movie.

Speaking of those movies, let us compile the "If Your Horror Franchise That Was Not Set In Outer Space Is Suddenly Set In Outer Space, Your Franchise Has Officially Jumped The Shark" list.

  • Hellraiser:  Bloodlines
  • Leprechaun In Space
  • Dracula 3000
  • Jason X

You can't really count Critters 4, can you?  Most of the franchise plot takes place on Earth but the Critters are aliens, so technically the story starts off in outer space and 4 just returns the action back to outer space.

I'll forever defend Jason X because that movie is just good dumb fun for everyone. 

But karate-kickin' cowboys in a Hellraiser movie, on the other hand...

I will always defend Jason X because of:

Obviously NSFW and one of the best murders in any slasher movie ever.

The last one from 2011, Revelations, was far and away the worst. It's the first one without Bradley, and it's a found footage movie made for a few hundred grand over the course of like a week. They were on a deadline to have a new one in the can or lose the rights. 

Really only the first two don't mischaracterize Pinhead. After that he's either portrayed as  a Freddy Kruegeresque super villain or a supernatural vigilante. 

I cant remember clearly, but I feel like the cowboys serviced part of the plot in Inferno. I'm not going to rewatch it to find out though.

And here I was thinking of the sleeping bag redux in Jason X as the one J.T. was referring to. But yeah, the liquid nitrogen kill is awesome. 

Is there a Jason X option for the Friday the 13th video game that just came out? If not I imagine they could save that for a sequel, along with a Freddy vs. Jason option.
