Gary J. Tunnicliffe recently did an interview with filmmakers Adam Green (Hatchet series, Frozen, Digging Up the Marrow) and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2: Dead End) on their podcast Geek Nation and gave a brief update on Hellraiser: Judgement. It appears some of the material for the movie was too intense for the cast and crew.
Here’s what he had to say:
We did two sequences where… one the actress almost passed out… a scene that you especially, Adam… you are going to freak the fuck out,” he continued. I’ll tell you off air about it, and when I explain it to you, you’re going to be like, ‘Jesus Christ.’ Involving a small dog. No, the dog doesn’t get hurt. But it goes through some… trauma. And then we had three grips leave the set during a sequence when they said, ‘This is utterly screwed up.’
It sounds like Gary hasn’t pulled any punches when it comes to the violence in Judgment. I have to admit, hearing that about the dog already makes me feel uncomfortable. For some reason, I’m reminded of the the Chatterer Beast from Hellraiser: Bloodline? I just hope the film adds up to being more than a series of violent set pieces. Unfortunately, he gave no details on when to expect the film to be released.
Also, he shared a funny story about Clive Barker while they were doing the re-shoots for Hellraiser: Hell on Earth.
