Earlier today, we shared the news that screenwriter Peter Atkins has published his original screenplay for Hell raiser: bloodline, a story that was severely compromised on the way to the screen. Going hand in hand with that publication is the release of author Danny Stewart’s book Making War Is Hell: Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (get a copy at THIS LINK), which doesn’t just take a look behind the scenes of the making of Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (watch the movie HERE), but also contains unproduced Hellraiser III treatments Atkins wrote while the project was in development!

the version of Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth which was released in 1992, was directed by Anthony Hickox from a screenplay by Atkins (based on a story Atkins made with Hellbound: Hellraiser II director Tony Randel). The film has the following synopsis:
After learning “Hellraiser II‘ that he told British Air Force Capt. Elliot Spencer – before being sucked into another dimension and turned into the pain-craving creature known as Pinhead – Spencer’s soul ends up in limbo. Meanwhile, Pinhead is sealed in a column, which is bought by JP Monroe. In a dream, Spencer learns journalist Joey Summerskill that she must reunite his two halves in order to send the murderous Pinhead back to his world.
Hellraiser III stars Terry Farrell, Paula Marshall, Kevin Bernhardt and Ken Carpenter, with Doug Bradley as Pinhead.
