Paul T. Taylor Looks Damn Good as Pinhead in New ‘Hellraiser: Judgment’ Image

Hellraiser Judgment

Paul T. Taylor becomes the third actor to play Pinhead in director Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment, which is still without any kind of release date.

We have no idea what’s going on with the film, but today brings a new image of Taylor as our new Pinhead, courtesy of Gore Gab. And we’re liking what we’re seeing!

The film also stars A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp, along with Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulager, Mike Jay Regan, Diane Goldner, Andi Powers, Jeff Fenter, Helena Grace Donald, and Grace Montie (read about their roles).

In the new sequel, “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?”

We hope to have release news soon.

    He doesn’t look too bad. Lets hope the trailer comes out soon to view what the movie can look like.

  • Terrorize Children.

    Infinitely better than the goofy ass Pinhead from Revelations. It’s about time to release this thing.

  • Jay Bennett

    Damn, 2017 is fading fast.. Hope they dont postpone until 2018

  • Appears to be a set photo. I’m actually optimistic about this one, from everything we’ve been seeing and hearing. But what’s going on with the release? Gary Tunnicliffe confirmed a while back that the official trailer, poster, and the film itself are all 100% completed and his website has said “Official release information coming soon…” for months now.

  • Will Coors

    So annoying! I was actually really hyped up for this sequel, I thought FINALLY we would get a real sequel but who knows what’s gonna happen now.

  • Horrible Day

    Actually looks like a fit replacement for Doug Bradley

  • Mike Gionfriddo

    Well, with everything going on behind the scenes at the Weinstein Company, I wouldn’t doubt it if its going to adversely affect their libraries. I was reading in the New York Times that they are trying to reach a deal so Bob can only run Dimension as a separate entity.

  • Mister B

    Doesn’t look terrible, but I’ll reserve judgment until I see actual footage.

    • sliceanddice

      judgement. lol

      • Mister B

        I’ve read it both ways.

  • sliceanddice

    looks… good. better than the last two images. hmmm i have a good feeling about this. famous last words?

  • Necro

    Man I really want to see this! He looks good, but is the film? And now with this mess with Dimension and The Weinsteins who knows! I hope this doesn’t turn into another ‘Poughkeepsie Tapes’ ordeal where we have to wait 10 years!

    • sliceanddice

      i hear ya. at least that move surfaced online

      • J Jett

        that’s true. POUGHKEEPSIE was technically online for years.

  • Joshua

    He looks amazing. Hopefully the movie keeps it simple and sticks to the spirit of the original.

  • Joshua

    I loved Hellraiser: Bloodline
    Who else liked it?

    • I loved the premise of that film (and liked some of the characters, such as Angelique and the Chatterer Beast), but the film itself wasn’t good IMO. The execution was botched and it played like a cartoon. None of the “explanations” panned out with the other films, either.

      • J Jett

        i admit i’ve only seen the first HELLRAISER and part of the 3rd (they were ok. i’m not a huge fan even though i love Clive Barker). my question is in any of the films is there any actual way to defeat Pinhead & Co.? or is like with Freddy Kruger where there’s really no way to permanently defeat him?

        • A lot of it isn’t really explained, mainly because the majority of the sequels after Bloodline are just original scripts that were converted into Hellraiser films. For instance, in Hellbound, Leviathan decides that the Cenobites are weak after they discover their humanity, and then kills all of them. But at the end, we never learn if Leviathan was destroyed or not. Then in Hellraiser III, Pinhead is resurrected and goes rogue. After he is sent back to Hell, we never learn if he goes back to working for Leviathan, or if he has completely taken over. In Inferno, Pinhead calls himself “The Engineer”, but we don’t know enough about what has gone on since Hellbound to know if he’s actually the new Engineer (we see him creating Cenobites left and right after Hellbound), or if he’s just using it as a random alias. In Deader, we are told that Cenobites are at war with a cult led by one of Lemarchand’s descendants, but we never actually see any of this. It honestly feels like there’s an entire series of Hellraiser movies happening that we don’t get to see, and the direct-to-video films are just tie-ins.

          Hellraiser is such a rich and expansive universe but, because of how Dimension Films has been running things, the movies after Bloodline don’t explore any of it. That’s one of the reasons I’m looking forward to Judgment. According to Gary Tunnicliffe, it will be faithful to the original films and it will actually explore the machinations of Hell, and give some much needed world-building.

        • Joshua

          The only way to defeat Pinhead and gang is to put them back in the puzzle box where they belong.

      I watched all 4 films when I was about 12 years old and Bloodline was my favorite.

      The scope was so expansive and vast.

      Felt like an epic Forrest Gump-like horror film where we jump from future and past, back and forth ’til we catch up to the future.

      And it felt like a definitive end.

      Haven’t seen it since so I don’t know how I’d like it now but I usually agree with my younger self at that age (I grew up fast so my perspective hasn’t changed too much and my taste in movies has only been more inviting, meaning that I tend to love a movie more than I did before).

  • Big Boss Rogers

    This gonna be in theatres? Its fucked some of our greatest horror movie villains get the stream service or right to DVD treatment! I miss goin to see these films in theatres! Fuck is up with that! Horror movies make more than those weak ass comedies and love movies!

  • Kyle Ord

    I have zero faith in this

    Bloodline was the last good one

    • And I didn’t even like Bloodline. The first two Hellraiser films are great, Hellraiser III is entertainingly bad, and Inferno was alright. The rest just aren’t good IMO.

      • Edgar Pinecone

        A fan after my own (Hellbound) heart.

      • Hero

        Bloodline was better in some ways than Hellraiser III, I thought, but still not that good. III more or less achieved what it set out to be, a commercialized, rock and metal-infused comedy horror for the masses. Bloodline tried to be an epic century-spanning sci-fi horror and fell short.

  • Rake

    He looks like Pinhead should look. I guess they just wanted to make the film to hold onto the rights and now they don’t want to release it because they plan on remaking the franchise soon, so releasing a hellraiser film before the remake would steal some of the buzz. Just a theory, they didn’t spend any money or time on it so I can’t imagine another reason.

    • John Connor

      Nah, they’re not doing a remake anytime soon.
      If anything, they’d want to release it and get it out the way.
      Unless its so good that they want to continue that story and want to create a plan to get things moving as soon as its released.

      Real answer for the delay is they’re likely holding it to release it when they have nothing else to release.

      • Rake

        You are nuts. They don’t give a crap about this straight to dvd hellraiser film. They do not expect it to make money if they did they would have invested money into it.

  • at this point, in all honesty, I’m starting to wonder if this movie really exists

    • John Connor

      It’s in distribution hell.

  • TimR

    Eh, he looks okay at this angle, but there’s another photo of him in the costume which doesn’t look that good in my opinion. They also changed up Pinhead’s outfit, which sucks if you ask me. I dunno, not looking forward to this new movie, and I’m a huge Hellraiser fan. From the plot details revealed last year to no Doug Bradley, I’ve lost all hope for this new one.

  • ShadowInc

    Just start over with a female Pinhead.

  • Kelly Dewis

    I love Doug Bradley as pin head. Just wonder how it would pan out with someone else in the role

    Hellraiser 20: Bloodclart


    Two things

    1) hellraiser for me ended with bloodline.

    2) there is no hellraiser without doug.

    THE END.

  • Brett Lovejoy

    Hellraiser 3 is my favorite. Burn me at the stake, I know, but that one stuck with me the most as a kid.

  • Dave

    They should just reboot the franchise, seriously. No one watches all of these Direct to dvd sequels. Remake the original and release it in theaters around halloween time and actually make it a good adaptation.

    • Hero

      That’s the reason they’ve been making these DTV movies, because they’ve been trying to reboot the franchise for the past ten years but have rejected every idea that’s been pitched, but a movie has to be made every so often so that they don’t lose the rights.
