There's Gore, Then There's Gore

Working on this series is about striking the right balance between the gore levels of the two licences. They are after all on very different scales.

Hellraiser is quite upfront with its visuals, sometimes showing you something that is horrifying in a visceral way!

Halloween is more about suspense and "is the boogeyman here yet?". Where we see kills, they're not very bloody, with the use of cutaways to minimize gore.

We've not aimed right down the middle of the two, instead opting to let the licences be what they should be when on the page. Cenobite kills and effects will be a lot more bloody but with purpose. Michael's are a lot more psychological in nature.

Once they're fighting each other, well, you'll have to wait and see  ;)
