Lemarchand's Box is back! Here's the debut trailer for a revealing new feature-length documentary detailing the demonic duo of the first two Hellraiser films, titled Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2.
Here's the official synopsis:
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.
Directed by Kevin McDonagh and written by Gary Smart and Nicholas Helmsley, Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 will haunt theaters later this year. As Clive Barker's Hellraiser reboot enters production, this might be a nice Pinhead primer to get you in the mood for an experience beyond pain and pleasure.

Don't lament, and have a look ...
