Hellraiser Podcast

We discuss the 1997 movie Wishmaster presented by Wes Craven and written by Peter Atkins, the writer of Hellraiser 2,3 & 4 and portrayer of the Barbie Cenobite. We go through the film talking about all aspects of it and playing spot the horror icon actor. Robert Englund! Tony Todd! Kane Hodder! Ted Raimi! Angus Scrimm! We would also like to apologise for the fact that we can't seem to stop doing impressions of the Djinn.

We chat to Peter Atkins, the writer of Hellraiser 2, 3 & 4 and actor in Hellraiser 3 as the Bartender/Barbie Cenobite. In a very entertaining and candid interview we discuss a range of topics including working with Clive Barker, the original concept of Leviathan, the many different scripts for Hellraiser 3, how he got his job as Barbie, and the difficult experience and studio interference on Hellraiser: Bloodline.

We return to the EPIC comics for a self-isolated quarantined chat. Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus Peter & Phil have had to record separately and then splice the two halves together but we hope that it still sounds the same as usual. 

After a little bit of Hellraiser news about the current reboot in the works we launch into a discussion of Books 9 & 10, featuring stories by Lana Wachowski, Nicholas Vince, Scott Hampton and D. G. Chichester. Join us as we discuss Russian Roulette, the heavyweight champion of the world, and a dive back into the world of The Devil's Brigade.
