Clive Barker To Regain U.S. Rights To Hellraiser After Legal Battle
Clive Barker is widely acknowledged as one of the true masters of modern horror. The writer, artist and director is best known for the Hellraiser series, about a mysterious puzzle box that opens the door to the Cenobite realm, populated by twisted creatures hungry for human souls to use in terrifying experiments.

Barker wrote and directed the first (and best) movie in the franchise back in 1987, which introduced audiences to the iconic Pinhead and his pals. But there’s a wrinkle, as he signed away the story and characters to the production company, having not anticipated that it would become a hugely successful property. This has meant that, save for a co-writer credit on Hellbound: Hellraiser II, he’s had little involvement in the nine sequels.

But things could be looking up for the series now, as Barker has just won his legal battle to regain the U.S. franchise rights from Park Avenue Entertainment.
