Well, according to this article, they were considering it:

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

As much as I'd have loved it, being a huge Hellraiser boffin, I just can't see the Weinsteins allowing New Line Cinema to use Pinhead.

I've marathoned the entire series of nine films twice within the past 2 months. Actually, I skipped Hellworld the second time. Even my fandom has its limits.

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

I wonder what legal loopholes they had to go through to get Pinhead on The Tonight Show.

(Yep, you read that right. Leno complained of a hangnail, which Pinhead took great interest in...)

i had always heard that rumor about Pinhead in Freddy vs Jason as well.
Pinhead vs Freddy makes more sense to me in that they can at least exchange verbal barbs as well.

I always thought of Pinhead as rather like Charles Emerson Winchester from MASH, with Freddy being more Hawkeye Pierce, a working class villain. Jason and Michael Myers have more in common--save for who owns the rights...

I've always wanted to see a movie set in Hell, with all these characters together.

It would be rather like DC's PREACHER, with a little Ghostbusters added.

The idea of belief made manifest interests me.

The idea is that a maelevolent god and hell did not exist before people believed in it--with books like LEFT BEHIND actually becoming likely in that the more people who believe makes such gruesome things actually horrifically real.

Enough serial killers believed in the idea that, the more you kill, the more you have control.

So Freddy and Pinhead have this Dante's Inferno type adventure, where the high rulers of Hell are sadly the warmongers of the 20th Century. They become anti-heros, as a Lovecraftian entity threatens to overwhelm them all.

Here, there are no dead teenagers, but a lot of dialog, and action in fighting demons and the like, and actually wind up saving our world...inadvertantly of course.

In terms of futuristic horror, I'd like to see a cautionary tale anthology involving near future threats.

In the 2020s, an A-380 hits the Sears Tower and a new Islamo-phobia is had. A heroic woman is sent to investigates whole towns of folks diasppearing in Russia, with mysterous diseases that are too targeted. A Bering Strait tunnel is used to asphyixiate dissidents by the train-load. In the US, a gun-powder eating micro-organism is released--the only truly effective gun-control method.

The end result, anarchy and vast waves of violent crime, and new feudalism

Pandorum was a spaceship based horror show and i would highly recommend it.

If you like animation, i would also recommend Dead Space: Downfall and Dead Space Aftermath
Both movies are based on the horror space game Dead Space.
I've already seen Pandorum and I liked it quite a bit!

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

Hey guys, while I certainly appreciate all the suggestions, none of the responses seem to be what I'm looking for.

I want a movie or TV show where there is a completely logical character like Data from TNG who is trying to solve something that appears to be the work of the supernatural or fantasy like vampires and demons. As I said, I love the episode 'Genesis' from season 7 of TNG where Data works to solve something that seems impossible and how he uses his logical way of thinking to solve the problem. Or, even the episode 'Time's Arrow' where Data is thrown into an unfamiliar era and how he needs to first analyze his predicament, then come up with a solution and then finally carry out that solution.

Also, in the movie 'Lost in Space' I love how the robot is exploring the spacecraft that's infested with those alien spiders and says "I'm detecting motion." Or, even something like the movie 'Prometheus' where the android David works to solve the problems they encounter. The episode 'Self-Made Man' from the Sarah Connor Chronicles was awesome, too. I really love how, like Data, the T-888 is sent back in time and he needs to try to logically come up with a solution to his difficult predicament. I find it great how he doesn't moan and complain and he accepts his situation and goes about solving it. I love the aspect of how he's a rugged individual.

I'd love to see something related to time travel like the two examples I just gave.

Are there any TV shows or movies that match this criteria?

Thank you!

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

Just pickup the 1990's version of the Outer Limits. You'll find plenty of episodes that match your various requests.

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

I guess the most popular ones would be Event Horizon, Sunshine, Alien, and Prometheus. A lot of stuff that tries to mix the two is terrible

Hey bro, thanks for your suggestion, but I already love this show!

I've only seen maybe one third of it though because I only watched the episodes I first read about.

Thanks!

I've seen all of those except for 'Sunshine'. Is 'Sunshine' any good? I don't want to finish watching the trailer because I have a feeling I'll get spoiled.

Re: Futuristic Horror Movies?

I suppose "Groundhog Day" could be considered a horror film...

If you want to slosh around in old Roger Corman produced stuff, then you have to see Galaxy of Terror. Joanie Cunningham from "Happy Days" gets squished, and some other babe gets raped by a space slug in an infamous scene. Bonus: Ray Walston's in it.

A site I frequently visit that has reviews on sci-fi, fantasy, and horror films is Moria, at
