Last month, news of another Hellraiser sequel broke out of nowhere and fans reacted with trepidation, to say the least. But the more we learned about the project, the more it seemed as if this was going to be something special. From the character descriptions to the director’s passion for the project, it really seems as if this may be the first Hellraiser feature in some time to recapture a bit of what once made the series great.
Today, we are excited to bring you a first look at actor Paul T. Taylor as Pinhead (below). He looks pretty stoic in the role and bears more than a passing resemblance to a young Doug Bradley when donning the getup. Have a look for yourself below. Image courtesy of BD.
In addition, to Taylor as Pinhead, the film also stars Damon Carney (The Hitcher 2007), Randy Wayne (True Blood), Alexandra Harris (The Veil 2016), John Gulagher (Director of Piranha 3DD and Feast), Diane Goldner (The Collector), Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Mike Jay Regan (Hellraiser: Inferno), Jeff Fenter (The Final), Grace Montie (Southern Tale) and newcomer Helena Grace Donald.
Hellraiser: Judgment (which is reportedly now in postproduction) was be directed by effects artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe. He also penned the screenplay.
“Detectives Sean and David Carter are on the case to find a gruesome serial killer terrorizing the city. Joining forces with Detective Christine Egerton, they dig deeper into a spiraling maze of horror that may not be of this world. Could the Judgment awaiting the killer’s victims also be waiting for Sean?” Stay tuned to the site for more updates on Hellraiser: Judgment as they are announced.
