While looking over past news articles at the horror site Bloody Disgusting, I came across an interesting new factoid that some of our listeners might not know about. Originally, there was a different screenwriter that was going to pen the script for Hellbound: Hellraiser II and that was Beetlejuice writer and novelist Michael McDowell. Sadly, he had to leave the project due to tragic circumstances involving the death of his partner at the time. Of course we know Peter Atkins came on board and did a hell of job writing the sequel, which I consider to be the best of the series. I have to wonder though, what if McDowell had written it? He came up with some pretty amazing stuff for Beetjuice. Especially, the scenes involving Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis’s characters in the afterlife which reminded me of Leviathan’s Labyrinth.
