Pinhead fans rejoice! You’re going to get another actor other than Doug Bradley to play him in the upcoming Hellraiser: Judgment movie! This isn’t exactly new news that Paul T. Taylor would be nailing on the pins for the upcoming sequel, but what is new is your first look at him in this teaser poster below:
Alright, let’s get the obvious out of the way. He looks 10 X better than the Pinhead in the 2011 travesty known as Hellraiser: Revelations. Here’s a revelation: You sucked as Pinhead, Stephan Smith Collins. Ok – now let’s talk about this teaser poster a little more. No Doug Bradley, but it looks as though those involved in Hellraiser: Judgment at least have gotten the look somewhat right – if you like to base things on blurry unfocused poster art that is.
I do have to say though that I hate the tagline ‘Evil Seeks Evil‘. Of course evil seeks evil! It’s not like evil is going to seek out some rainbows and ponies. As a whole, I’m over these weak-ass Hellraiser sequels though. Unless you can get Clive Barker officially onboard AND get Doug Bradley back – I’m pretty much already checked out. How they dropped the ball with the franchise is a little mind-boggling to be honest. The possibilities were endless and we could have seen Pinhead go to the deepest, darkest places……Instead we got him in a nightclub in Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth (guilty pleasure scene though). I’m anticipating the trailer for this sequel (which is already in post-production), but my expectations are lower than low. Btw – how great would it be if Julia returned in some way or form?
