We’re One Step Closer To Hellraiser, Scream and Children Of The Corn Video Games

Hungry for more video games based on Hollywood movies? Of course you are. Thankfully, The Weinstein Company, the production company started by Miramax founders Bob and Harvey Weinstein, is going to try its hand at making video games.

The Weinstein Company is responsible for properties like Hellraiser, Halloween, Scream, Scary Movie and Children of the Corn, horror flicks that have never been properly exploited in the video game space. (Sure, there was a Halloween game for the Atari 2600 and Color Dreams almost made a Hellraiser game for the NES...) That's going to change, if TWC has its way.


TWC says it will "work with external partners to develop and publish video games for mobile, social, and console platforms." It's buddying up with video game production company Beefy Media, founded by ex-EA and ex-Capcom guys-notably, Adam Boyes, who drove a lot of Capcom's downloadable game releases-to make that happen.

Movie-based video games almost always suck. It's even worse when they're cheap cash-ins, like the recent Battle: Los Angeles downloadable game was. I can't think of a single great movie-based video game, although there have been a few good ones (the recent Transformers game, Chronicles of Riddick).

I bet these will end up being cheap cash-ins. By all means, go for it... but if you're going to not even bother and rush things, then save yourselves the money, Weinsteins.
