Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II
...Not strictly under an official 'Clive Barker project' banner but the team from Cult Screenings UK Ltd has travelled far and wide to interview a hugely impressive cast of actors and crew who were involved in the first two Hellraiser pictures, along with one or two others who weren't but who offer an insight into Clive's works... This Kickstarter-funded documentary was released in 2015 and, ahead of our own definitive book about Hellraiser (news here - The Making of Hellraiser), we happily contributed the liner notes to the DVD's booklet.
Plenty of interesting content as the documentary project gained increasing momentum their Facebook page here...

Cult Screenings UK Ltd : "Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II is a feature length documentary uncovering the history, making of and unknown details of the making of Clive Barker's Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II films.
"With interviews and testimonies from those most closely involved, we hope to bring a comprehensive insight to these classic cult films.
"Following the story of the films from their inception through production to release and the their subsequent lives and growing fan base, we aim to show fans and those less familiar with the films both the technical skills, the creative idea, the symbolism and the legacy of these movies.
"Delving deep into the director's vision and ambitions for the project we'll be exploring where he came from, where his career had taken him and the inspiration for the story and world he created. We'll be telling the story of his journey of making them and how close they came to his vision at the time and how he feels about them over 25 years later.
"We want to hear how the cast and crew feel now and felt at the time about the idea, the production and the final film when it was completed as well as how they were influenced by the production and Clive and how the films have contributed to their futures.
"Through a series of candid interviews, behind the scenes footage, stills and a look at the promotional material from the time and the merchandise now available, we will create a truly engaging and informative piece, with a few laughs and a bit of gossip thrown in for good luck."
