PUBLIC VERSION. Writer Peter Atkins (HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH, HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE, WISHMASTER) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey… to hell and back! From a blue collar aspiring rock musician living in Liverpool to becoming one of the most pivotal artists to ever create within the great Clive Barker’s sandbox and the iconic HELLRAISER franchise…this deep dive into everything Cenobite would satisfy even “Uncle Frank’s” darkest desires! How did a disastrous economy wind up providing just the right opportunity for Peter at just the right time? What was Peter’s writing process and creative collaboration with Clive actually like? What was actually shot for the HELLRAISER sequels and what was torn out of Peter’s screenplays before cameras ever rolled? What scenes were cut in the editing process? Does Peter think that fans will ever see the rumored cutting room floor moments that fans have been whispering about on-line for decades? What was the initial reaction to such a highly sexualized and taboo genre film that arrived at a time when traditional slashers still ruled the box office? “Pinhead” fans, this conversation/geek out will “tear your soul apart” (in a good way)!
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a screenwriter who has unexpectedly found himself writing “one for them,” Adam reveals a morbid detail about his first kiss, and the boys announce the official dates for YORKIETHON VII!
