If this was an episode of Diff’rent Strokes or Family Ties, we’d call this “a very special episode”. We talk with Tony Randel (HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER 2, TICKS, AMYTIVYLLE 1992) and Peter Atkins (HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER 2, HELLRAISER 3, WISHMASTER) about the origins of New World Pictures and the origins of the HELLRAISER franchise. This is the first of a two-part series. In this episode, we talk about the sci-fi era of New World Pictures, the transition from Roger Corman to the new regime, and the roster of films they produced in the 1980s. Best of all, our inner dork personalities managed to not vomit with nerves during the interview. That’s a win.
