Part 2 🚨Adult Language 🚨
Peter Atkins, screenwriter for Hellraiser 2, 3 and 4, The Wishmaster franchise plus acting credits in Hellraiser and Nightbreed and many more. Plus published author, his work includes Morningstar, Big Thunder and Moontown.
Tired of the same questions interview after interview, so we had an hours long friendly chat. We start strong with Canadian food and geography. And end up talking about Video Nasties, the X rating and Video store/ direct to video era.
Generational differences and their approaches to horror and cinema in general and consuming them. How the theaters were when Peter was a child and how movies worked. The 4K backlash online started by Chris. Remastering of movies, the complaints and the decay of films.
How he came to write the screenplay with Clive Barker and what the process was. And the only other work he’s done concerning the Hellraiser mythos. How the name Inferno came to be.
Where he thought Wishmaster was heading. Making movies the hard way with Clive Barker. Words about the horror author Ramsay Campbell. Plus His views on opinions about bad movies.
