While Dimension Films continues to try and figure out what they want to do with the Hellraiser franchise, a Hellraiser movie that never was is making its way to screens tonight. Mike Le Han will screen his short film Hellraiser: Origins, originally conceived as a pitch to reboot the film series, as part of the ongoing HollyShorts monthly screening series.

In September, we posted a teaser trailer for English writer/director Mike Le Han‘s short period film titled Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room. Han has released a second trailer on Quiet Earth, this one featuring completed special effects. Shot earlier this year, the dark fantasy short is about “a little girl who meets Mrs Peppercorn a shop owner set in a remote Cornish fishing village.”

The Reading Room book shop has stood empty and untouched for 9 years until Eloise an adopted little girl moves to the village. She doesn’t expect what she discovers.

Le Han and his wife/co-writer Helen Le Han have a co-production deal with Little Freddie Productions to develop a trilogy loosely based on the short film. I’m impressed with the visuals in the trailers and can’t wait to see the full short. Last we heard, Le Han was submitting the short for the Bafta and Oscar in 2011. If you missed the initial teaser trailer, click here. Hit the jump to watch the new movie trailer.
