Interview: Peter Atkins Discusses Clive Barker, Hellraiser, Nightbreed, Wishmaster, & More

I had the pleasure of interviewing Peter Atkins, the man who wrote Hellraiser II, Hellraiser III, Hellraiser: Bloodline, and Wishmaster. We talked about his work on the Hellraiser franchise, including the 30th anniversary of Hellraiser III, the upcoming Hulu movie, and the HBO TV series. We also talked about what it was like working with two masters of horror: Clive Barker and Wes Craven.

We spoke for three hours, so grab some popcorn, kick back, and enjoy our conversation. You can watch the full interview below.
