i found this-

There is a new version of H. P. Lovecraft's "The Unnamable" currently being filmed in Germany, under first-time director Sascha Renninger. The project is intended to be the most faithful Lovecraft adaptation ever. The movie is being shot on 16mm film stock, with English dialogue, American actors, and a shoestring indie budget. The trailer is online at http://www.the-unnamable.com/


i new those crazy germans were up to something.

What do you have against Hellraiser VI? I don't think it was that bad. Ok, after 'the 6th sense' and 'the others' the ending was not totally new, but still quite interesting. Though I must admit that it did not have much in common with the first four Hellraiser parts. Part V we really better forget. This was ....*yuck*

Hellraiser was born a monster/demon flick, it was better like that. Now its some trendy bollocks that has very little to do with that, or at least not as much as I think it should.

Maybe I was a littel rash on VI, but V is by far the worst, and V and VI are very similar. Wierd for the sake of weird it almost felt like when watching them.

well, the 2 new hellraisor movies are comming out. i didnt think part 5 was all that bad. not great, but decent enough. 6 i thought was all right, though completely predictable.

i hope unnameable isnt all 'mtv trendy' as well. Those types of movies i do not like at all. like in blair witch 2, they tried to be so hip that it hurt. painfull just to listen to thier prattleing bitchmoanimawitch dialogue. if i was trapped in the woods with them, id be,'hurry up and kill me first.' or it would turn into a
friday the 13th
part 12: Monkey snaps, and kills 7.

Yep, the one I meant and yucked was part 4. Slight number confusion.

*sigh* Unfortunately most are. But fortunately this does not necessarily a film bad.

eh,
hellraisor 4's director had his name taken off, 'alan smithee'.
Still,
i didnt think it was all that bad. all the hellraisor movies are at the least 'ok' or even 'great' compared to some other series.

Most lovecraft based movies are rather bad. I liked Dagon, i think this was the best lovecraft themed movie yet that stayed close to the original material. the re-animator movies were good, though not very much like lovecraft's books(i know 'Dagon' isnt based on the book 'dagon', but that shadows over innsmouth or something). Lurking fear, unnameable 1 and 2, are ok, though low budgets show.

Ain't Re-animator Lovecraft based? That film rules! Also "in the mouth of Madness" is his isn't it? That film is one of my favourites, I think it's based on Lovecraft's writing. Only other decent one is "From Beyond" :) That was cool too.

I'd rate the Hellraiser series like this (best at top, worst at bottom):

1
2
6
5
3
4

As some others have stated, both the 5th and 6th could've been fairly decent movies, had they only not been labled 'Hellraiser'. Should've called them something like:
'Exuse me, have you seen my brain' 1 & 2
or
'Look out for that mailbox'


'From Beyond' was very good too BTW.
Everybody sing along now:
'Giving them drugs, taking their lives away?
drugs, taking their lives?
Giving them drugs, taking their lives away?
drugs, taking their lives?
Giving them drugs'

WHOOHOO! Eat wet concrete, get stoned!

I hated number 2. But imo parts 5 and 6 had the climate of Lynch movies and therefore deserve to be right after number 1 on my ranking.

ahh,
i prefered 5 to 6. After seeing 5, number 6 seemed pretty much the same,except for adding inconsistent or just confused elements to make the plot twist.

the mouth of madness i liked a lot, though i think the only lovecraft themed portion was that the evil/monsters were described as uncomprehinsible/tentacle-y/creepy crawly things hidden beyond the site and scope of man's rationale mind, like barbara striesand's vagina.
