Should it really have come as any surprise that plans are in the works for a retooled version of the original Hellraiser movie franchise? Thats right, the 1987 film based on the Clive Barker novella The Hellbound Heart is getting a face lift, and it was announced this weekend that the writers of Saw IV & V (Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton) will be providing the script.
It is important to remember that as we entered the new year, scientists in the United States were re-animating the hearts of dead rats (as we passed into the lunar Year of the Rat on Feb. 7th) which led to the creation of entirely new rat hearts. Anyone familiar with the Hellraiser mythos can see the similarities here...for those not quite sure, I'd suggest watching.
I mention this in the wake of nearly a months worth of Heartbreakers...the death of Heath Ledger, the double whammy which was the Super Bowl (the Patriots loss and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers halftime reunion), and now the horror of the new Valentine's Day Massacre at Northern Illinois University. Researcher Goro Adachi continues to unlock these connections on an almost daily basis, as we will continue this Heart-breaking with the possible Wednesday [Feb. 20th] shooting down of the crippled U.S. spy satellite...
A lunar eclipse will also take place later this evening...one which is said to mirror the one that saved Christopher Columbus and his crew in 1504. Odd that this would coincide with the end of the current shuttle mission involving Atlantis and the Columbus Space Lab.
Friday, February 15th 2008 ABC television's "20/20" investigative news show featured a creepy expose' on the hugely popular "Bodies" exhibits that have been circulating the globe via two separate production companies. According to "20/20" the Hellraiser-ish art/educational sideshow has been receiving it's cadavers from less than reputable sources from China, and there is credible enough evidence to suggest that some of the bodies could have been those of unidentified political prisoners whom had been executed.
As more information begins to surface about Steven Kazmierczak, the NIU shooter, a few details are of note here at The Looking Glass:
1) He briefly served in the U.S. Army and was discharged for undisclosed reasons (he claimed to his godfather recently that it had been for psychiatric reasons. 2) In his not so distant past he had flirted with Satanism and White Supremists Groups . 3) He had received three tattoos in the past six months, a pentagram, a skull with a sword through it, and the Jigsaw character from the "Saw" films riding a tricycle with bloody suicide scars in the background.
Back on November 7th, 2007 the shooter (Pekka-Eric Auvinen) in the Jokela High School massacre in Finland had cited the "Saw" films as essential viewing [see his Manifesto here]. Anyone willing to take the time to read this will most likely relate to much of what he is saying, and yet he takes his entire belief system to such an extreme as to see himself as GOD, and therefore rightly able to serve as both judge and executioner. A twisted combination of truth and naive understanding of the New World Order? Misplaced aggression, frustration with the human condition...we have not seen the end.
Writer and researcher Loren Coleman has done some really excellent work in regards to all of the cases related. THE COPYCAT EFFECT
