Hellraiser : Leviathan Project - Kickstarter Campaign

"Leviathan: The making of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II" is a documentary detailing the history and the making of – a process which was brimming with creativity and many a creative to boot - the first two Hellraiser movies, and showcases the creative genius of its creator, Clive Barker.
The documentary has completed UK production on interviews which includes Nick Vince, Barbie Wilde, Kenneth Cranham, Simon Banford, Chris Figg, Robyn Vigeon, Geoff Portass and many, many more. (Twenty-five interviews in total thus far.)
The stories and insights that have been gathered are making for a truly amazing documentary, which certainly makes it a ‘must see’ event for any fan of both the filmmaking process and of the films themselves.
The team now firmly have their sights set on a US trip to interview several of the American based members of the production team, most notably, hopefully the man himself Clive Barker, which would conclude principal photography and move the production into post-production.
The documentary has achieved so much in such a short time, but in order to complete this project Cult Film Screenings are seeking completion funding – having self-funded the project up to this point.
The director, K. John McDonagh, and producer, Gary Smart, are pushing hard to find the funds, and here’s what they have to say:
“It’d be a shame not to do this properly after all the hard work that has gone into it so far …” says director Kevin McDonagh. “… we could cut corners towards the end and phone it in, literally with Skype interviews and out sourcing, however we’ve strived to create and uphold a very specific look and vision for the documentary to compliment the films, and that is of a very high standard of which we intend to keep. The only way to achieve that is to go to US ourselves and do things right…”
“We’ve committed to this one-hundred percent,” says producer and co-writer Gary Smart, “and we want to see it through to the end in all aspects so that we can maintain the level of quality that we have achieved thus far; it’s what the fans deserve and it’s what the legacy of those two films deserves. One way or another we’ll give the fans what they’re after, and finish this documentary how we’ve envisioned it right from the start: by doing it the right way.”
