Gary Tunnicliffe Directing 'Hellraiser: Judgment'

Confirmed: Gary Tunnicliffe Directing ‘Hellraiser: Judgment’ That Features a New Pinhead

Cenobite

Things got interesting two nights ago when A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp revealed she was set to star in the next Hellraiser movie with FX guru Gary Tunnicliffe sitting in the director’s chair.

We did extensive research and was able to learn that filming had already begun on Judgment, a film that Tunnicliffe attempted to crowd-source back in 2013.

It was pretty clear after hours of digging that this in fact was going to be a new Hellraiser film, only we didn’t know to what extent.

Fangoria was able to connect with Tunnicliffe who confirmed that he is in fact in production on Hellraiser: Judgment, and that Langenkamp will be featured in a role!

While the information shared is vague, what stands out the most is his fear that us horror fans feel like this is another half-assed Hellraiser sequel, as was Victor Garcia’s 2011 Hellraiser: Revelations. What we should feel good about is that the Judgment screenplay was Tunnicliffe’s passion project, which means there’s been a lot of heart-filled time spent on it. I just hope the Cenobites – including Pinhead – don’t feel pigeonholed into the movie.

Speaking of Pinhead, Tunnicliffe responded to Doug Bradley’s agitated Facebook post as to why he won’t be returning as Pinhead, adding that they found “a classically trained stage and film actor who brings a great physical presence and more than a hint of Peter Cushing and Ralph Fiennes” to replace him.

I was thrilled and excited to call Doug and let him know I was writing and directing HELLRAISER: JUDGEMENT , I considered Pinhead HIS role and I was looking forward to working with him and bringing him back to the fans. Legally, we needed a simple non-disclosure agreement signed (very much common place now with production companies) but he immediately balked. I have no idea why, I’ve signed way more binding NDA’s than that myself, most actors and crew on productions of any size usually have to now.

Doug wrote back to me…

‘I’m going to make myself liable for a million bucks I don’t have just to read a damn script?… I don’t think so’
I was stunned, after all it was my ‘damn’ script and it let me know how he felt straight away. I wrote to him saying I was sorry he felt that way and the next day the search for a new Pinhead began.

A few weeks later, we found him: a classically trained stage and film actor who brings a great physical presence and more than a hint of Peter Cushing and Ralph Fiennes. I can’t wait to get him bound in leather, gridded up and in front of the camera and on screens!

He doesn’t reveal who the new Pinhead is, but it can’t be worse than what we saw in Garcia’s Revelations. Furthermore, do we really need Pinhead? Jon says “No.”

“This is not a simple recycling of the HELLRAISER formula; this is a film that will boast some of the strangest, most bizarre, horrific and thought provoking sequences ever seen in a horror film, a horror film that owes it’s inspiration to the works of Heironymous Bosch, and Francis Bacon as well as Cronenberg, Fincher and Lynch (the David’s, as we nickname the influences here) as well as obviously and foremost Clive Barker.”

Clearly responding to our assertion this could be rushed and that it’s based on his Judgment screenplay, Tunnicliffe promises that Hellraiser: Judgment “isn’t a re-hashing of an old script nor was it rushed into production. It’s a completely original piece and so far it’s looking pretty amazing…

“To the fans, I would say this… I know you’ve been let down, and trust me, I have too, but simply give me a chance,” he adds. “I know we can NEVER make a film as great as the first two HELLRAISER’s, I wouldn’t even attempt to do so, but I think we have a fun script here an opportunity with an amazing cast and crew to give you all something that feels a little familiar, a little different, completely terrifying and is a worthy part of the HELLRAISER Canon… oh and of course if you want blood?… well you’ve got it!”

  • Creepshow

    God that Pinhead looks awful! Its more like Nail-Face. So glad I pulled the plug on Hellraiser after #3.

    • D. Maki

      That was Pinhead for Hellraiser: Revelations, not the new one.

      • Creepshow

        I think we know that considering there isn’t a new one.

        • D. Maki

          >_> Yeah there IS a new one the article is talking about it. Jeez. Hellraiser: Judgement IS what I was referring to. I mean that the pic is from Revelations the craptastic Hellraiser.

  • I wonder if Dimension is being mum on this in hopes that it turns out decent enough to release to theaters. If it’s not a total pile of crap like the last one, might as well release it wide and make a few million.

  • wehoaks

    1. Bradley can go fuck himself. “A million bucks I don’t have” Do you plan on babbling you moron? All these so-called icons, Englund, Hodder, Bradley – are all rambling egomaniacal pricks. And HAS BEENS.
    2. This film is gonna suck.

    • huntermc

      Bradley has a better reply on his Facebook page in the link above in the article. Basically, he passed on the project because he objected to signing a million dollar NDA in order to just even read the script.

      • Nathan Bradley

        A million dollar gag order it must be a shit script.

        • wehoaks

          Or, OR, a million dollar NDA is rather routine today. Yeah I think that’s it. Bradley is an idiot.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Gag orders are not routine at all.

          • wehoaks

            Um they are pretty common. Having someone sign an NDA for a film in pre-production is rather routine. And again: did he plan to fucking blab?? I don’t see why a has been thinks an NDA is beneath his broke ass.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Just for the record I am not siding with anyone on this it just appears to me that a gag order was required so Doug would not claim the script was shit and that is why he chose not to take part in it.

          • wehoaks

            The NDA is not to prevent someone from saying a script is shit it is to prevent them from revealing what is in the script. Him saying “I read it and it was dogshit” is not breaking the NDA.

            What part of NDA’s are common practice are you not getting?

          • Nathan Bradley

            actually NDA’s can prevent you from saying anything at all. Hence gag order.

          • wehoaks

            AND their routine. Bradley should shove it up his ass.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Clearly Doug was made to sign a gag order to see the script, this was done for a variety of reason one of them being that he can’t talk up that he has read the script and thought it was shit, this in the hopes that fans will listen and not see the movie.

          • Khy

            What kind of “professional actor” would even want to talk shit about a movie he was offered anyway? What happened to turning it down and just shutting up?
            Sounds like an ass to me.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Oh come on Khy, that’s about the first thing you have said that I have ever disagreed with. It’s not Doug’s fault that he wants to try to increase the quality of the film by expressing his disgust at the current script, something the gag order prevents him from doing.

          • wehoaks

            You are such a moron.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Why, Because what I say makes sense?

          • wehoaks

            What you say makes zero sense and is all based on your DERPY OPINION. what i am saying is based on legal facts.

            “I will not read. What if it is Shit? I CANT TELL PEOPLE IT IS SHIT?!” – the guy who did SEVEN hellraiser movies

          • Creepshow

            Its sweet how you always attract the “special ones”.

          • wehoaks

            The special ones who have no fucking clue how anything ever works AND think their derp opinion is fact.

          • Creepshow

            Gluttons for punishment love thee as well.

          • wehoaks

            Oy.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Are you calling me special? wehoaks is crying because either 1. Doug won’t appear in his shitty Hellraiser sequel or 2. the Weinstein’s won’t green light his shit Hellraiser remake.

          • wehoaks

            I mean how fucking retarded are you? I think doug is an idiot acting like a gag order is beneath him, especially considering he said yes to SEVEN shitty films in this series already.

            Hellraiser remake bahahahahahah christ you are special. Yup I wrote a remake. You got me. They won’t buy it. It was good too. I wrote it on toilet paper after having the squirts

          • Nathan Bradley

            Its not that it’s beneath him it’s that it prevents him from derailing them.

          • wehoaks

            Can you form an argument based on one fact? Just one little fact.

            And if Doug goes into reading with the plan to derail a film he’s an even bigger asshole. You are OBSESSED with his loser being asked to sign a document that so many people in the industry sign daily.

          • Nathan Bradley

            That’s there dumbass fault for signing, Doug knew not to lol.

          • wehoaks

            You have no idea how the industry works. Just stop talking.

          • Nathan Bradley

            So what dumbass gag order have you signed dumbass? let me guess you are prohibited from saying at the cost of a dollar.

          • wehoaks

            I had to sign one in 2010 when I read Scream 4. Another when I read one of the Friday scripts. One when I read Halloween 3-D and Halloween Returns. Another when I read a Captain America. Another when I read an indie drama last week. See moron. What’s the big fucking deal? God forbid someone wants to protect their work from idiots like YOU.

            Bahahahahahahahaha you legit have no clue. And what person’s goal is to not sign a document so they can talk shit about something handed to them? What fucking kind of flooring did your mom repeatedly drop you face down on?

          • Nathan Bradley

            Wow wow wow, Doug Bradley has a vested interest in Hellraiser , it’s in his best interest that he protects it even if he has to shit talk a load of hacks like you.

          • Khy

            Nathan what’s going on with you? You’re acting all out of sorts. Calm down. Did you miss nap time?

          • wehoaks

            Again why are you back to this fucktard Bradley? WHAT PART OF THIS IS ROUTINE BUSINESS won’t fire in your damn brain?

            Is your facts synapse switched to off?

          • Nathan Bradley

            What part of it being routine business has anything to do with Doug not wanting to be gagged?

          • wehoaks

            You are a fucking idiot. I am done explaining the world to you.

          • Nathan Bradley

            what a knob jockey.

          • wehoaks

            Yes, you are. Moron.

          • Khy

            I’ll pray for your mental recovery Nathan. Must’ve been a hard day.

          • wehoaks

            PROTECTS it hahahahaha this dude would do a hellrasier film for a ring ding and a can of soda.

            “I need to protect the Hellraiser franchise” – the guy who did SEVEN shitty Hellraiser films

          • Nathan Bradley

            Why would he refuse to be in it then?

          • wehoaks

            You are a fucking idiot. I am done explaining the world to you

          • Nathan Bradley

            This Scream 4 you mention, Was it any different from the theatrical shit we got?

          • wehoaks

            In some ways yes, in others no. The script I got leaked online years back. You can find it.

          • Nathan Bradley

            I’ll have a look, if you know where it is post us a link. Can you give me an idea of what to look for, a scene that I will recognise it by?

          • Nathan Bradley

            Many of the drafts of Scream 3 are better than the film.

          • wehoaks

            Scream 3 is the worst.

          • wehoaks

            Scream trilogy has it.

            The opening is there, the one before the reshoot. Script title is Z. That was the films code.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Out of curiosity what do you do that granted you access to the scripts in the first place?

          • wehoaks

            I work in the industry so I know tons of people with access.

          • RidleyScott

            Special people HATE logic, sound reasoning and facts. Like garlic to a vampire.

          • Creepshow

            I swear its like a case of OCS. “Only Child Syndrome”

          • RidleyScott

            Doug needs to shut up and go buy more sharpies for the next dork con.

          • wehoaks

            Doug would do a new Hellraiser for a tic tac and a menthol, who the fuck is he kidding.

          • wehoaks

            Again what part of NDAs are routine do you not fucking understand?? he is not the first fucking special snowflake to be handed an agreement to sign. And if he read and hated and couldn’t say “IT’S SHIT ” to his three fans wouldn’t him PASSING say that for him?

          • Nathan Bradley

            If only I was one of the obsessed Hellraiser fans, lets just say that Hellraiser as a whole is not my bag. But that doesn’t stop me from seeing that the Weinstein’s have gaged the main guy to prevent any further loss.

          • wehoaks

            Why are you so obsessed with this particular shitty actor signing a gag order? Tons of people do you turd. THATS MY GODDAMN POINT.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Right, all this is because of Halloween and it’s not even in their effing hands anymore. My point is the Weinstein’s are hell bent on remaking this but are taking their sweet time about it, as such they are having to fork out every so often to make a sequel to retain the rights and select people (Doug Bradley) have what effort they can muster to derail them.

          • wehoaks

            Christ man you have no fucking clue.

            I legit said “this is routine” I dont give a shit about this dumb film or doug or anything else. It’s a routine matter. HOW ARE YOU STILL NOT GETTING MY POINT?

          • Nathan Bradley

            Yes it’s routine, happy, it’s the politics behind it all that’s infuriating.

          • wehoaks

            The “politics” you think is behind it was created in your dumb head.

          • Nathan Bradley

            cobblers it’s the remake causing this, the only reason it is happening is because of a contract the Weinstein’s signed god knows when that’s costing them a fortune, the last few Hellraiser films can be tallyed into the remakes budget.

          • wehoaks

            I have no idea what you just said. Rewrite and resubmit.

          • Nathan Bradley

            So good I will say it twice, it’s the remake causing this, the only reason it is happening is because of a contract the Weinstein’s signed god knows when that’s costing them a fortune, the last few Hellraiser films can be tallied into the remakes budget

          • wehoaks

            I hope you’re cute. Dumb guys have no chance unless they’re cute.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Brushing me up now are you? If only I gave a fucking dam about the Hellraiser series, it’s Halloween that I can’t get over.

          • wehoaks

            I mean you care very much about doug having the ability to say a script is shit. You care enough to forgo the facts thrown at you.

            And be glad dimension lost Halloween. The Returns script was shit and they made shit films in the series, save H20 which is good at best.

          • Nathan Bradley

            I’m in too minds over Halloween, I actually like the dimension films It’s the fucking remakes that I can’t sit through.

          • Nathan Bradley

            So what happened in the Returns script?

          • wehoaks

            Nothing good.

          • wehoaks

            And brushing you up? I just called your ass dumb.

          • Kori Batchelor

            That right there made my day. Thanks!

          • wehoaks

            Welcome dude!

          • Khy

            And what exactly is wrong with that? It’s a business, Nathan.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Good point Khy it is business, but there’s no need to lie about it all like wehoaks is.

          • wehoaks

            I mean you have to be fucking with me. Right?

            Lie? Jesus H you need a fucking lobotomy.

          • wehoaks

            Of course the idiot didn’t get that my who argument being “this is routine” is saying “it’s business”

          • NixEclips

            This whole conversation is making my night. Hilarious.

          • wehoaks

      • wehoaks

        Again I say – did he plan to blab? NDA’s are so routine. And he is lucky someone is even asking him to do a movie. The dumb hack.

  • Mark Allen Holm

    An actor’s excitement is generally the result of studio/director/producer spin. Intensity usually gets mistaken as talent. It sounds like Tunnicliffe’s passion project was compromised to get it made; and I’m sure he’s convinced himself that it was the best decision.

    It’s also just as likely that his passion project was a Hellraiser sequel all along and would have been just another wannabe if it actually got made. He might have just gotten lucky with Dimension’s sequel deadline coming due.

    Fincher, Cronenberg and Lynch excite me, but telling me how inspired your project is by them tells me you’re a fucking bullshit artist hack.

  • alwayswipetwice

    Is this supposed to be some 4D meta-thing, where we’re supposed to feel tortured by the movie itself?

    • Gadriel

      Oh, they have SUCH sights to show you!

  • mike290

    why make another hellraiser, didn’t anyone learn anything from that awful revelations film, if doug ain’t playing pinhead then the film ain’t even worth talking about

    • John Connor

      Doug is more than wonderful as Pinhead, but his exclusion does not make a bad film.

  • Wes Draven

    Two things occurred to me while reading this…
    1.) There are two Brad/Bradley’s featured in this post that come off as dicks.
    2.) I look forward to it.

    • wehoaks

      “There are two Brad/Bradley’s featured in this post that come off as dicks.”

      WINNER.

  • wehoaks

    Mr 90s goatee talking shit about someone else’s looks is hilarious.

  • Benjamin Crommentuyn

    The fact that Tunnicliffe is actually directing is enough reason for me to give this one a chance. The man worked on numerous Hellraiser movie and the man even played an older version of Pinhead in a self produced short. As a life long fan of the Hellraiser series you can bet Tunnicliffe will give it his best shot.

  • Boofie

    Right. Clive Barker tweeted the front page of a Hellraiser sequel script about….two weeks ago? Guess that’s going to be thrown out now.

    • Gavin Dobbs

      That was a manuscript page to a Chronicles novella. He’s writing a final meeting between Kirsty and the Hell Priest.

  • I know Revelations was pure shit, but “chunky fatty”? Really? Keep it classy, BD.

    • TheTwoJakes

      Plus the actor that played Pinhead in Revelations is not overweight….its either the make-up design or the fact we have never seen anybody else besides Bradley as Pinhead. I agree that it didnt look right, but the “Chunky, Fatty” comment seemed a little juvenile.

      Side Note: Doug Bradley killed it as Pinhead and I wish he was coming back, however him not signing a non-disclosure agreement is just insane. Robert Englund had to sign them for the later Nightmare films, as does just about every actor working on a high profile film. He took it too personal, I’m sure Heather had to sign one as well to read the script.

      • John Connor

        Yea, its pretty crazy that Doug is acting that way. I mean, I get what he’s saying. Why put yourself in the position of owing a million bucks if you are suddenly accused of leaking something (whether you did or not)? But aren’t those non-disclosure agreements pretty much mandatory and typical of almost any film? It would be the same as signing a contract to show up to work on a film. Doug sounds like a spoiled asshole.

        • wehoaks

          Ding ding ding.

        • wehoaks

          Also, they can digitally track a leak (and even use their name as a watermark on the script). he doesn’t leak it himself he is fine.

          he’s an asshole.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Well either way Doug won’t be in it so it will be another shit Hellraiser film.

          • Khy

            It would’ve been shit regardless. It’s Hellraiser.

          • Nathan Bradley

            good point.

          • RidleyScott

            Bahahahaha the TRUTH

          • wehoaks

            It’s shit with or without him.

          • wehoaks

            Let’s hug Nathan.

          • Khy

            Group hug Nathan. You need therapy. We still love you.

  • Nathan Bradley

    All this just so the Weinstein’s can retain the rights to Hellraiser, they let Halloween go and it was a theatrical series of films, Hellraiser has been DTV since 5 what chance does Hellraiser have, the remake must be worth a fortune, the remake is something they have had all the time in the world to make but yet it has still to happen, what gives?

    • wehoaks

      And if and when they do a remake, there is no chance in hell it is a hit. No way.

      • Nathan Bradley

        Yes I agree, Halloween is enough proof of that.

        • RidleyScott

          Uh what. Halloween remake was a hit. Hellraiser is nowhere near the level of Halloween.

        • Spencer Jacobson

          The Halloween remake was a MASSIVE hit. 80 million on a 15 million budget.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Hit and being shit are two different things, making money on the first film was inevitable. The original opening of Halloween II grossed less than the 2007 remake, with approximately $7 million. The film would go on to earn $33.4 million in North America, and $5.9 million in foreign countries giving the film a worldwide total of $39.3 million. My point is no one liked 1.

          • wehoaks

            Dude none of your copy and pasting from wikipedia, none of hat you wrote has anything to do with what people are talking about. The Halloween remake, regardless of it being shit, was a hit and was pretty much guaranteed to be a hit.

            A Hellraiser remake, even if it is the greatest movie of all time, will not be a hit. No one is clamoring for it save huge fans of the series. It will not be a hit film.

            Get it or will logic continue to escape you?

          • Nathan Bradley

            Just like the Halloween remake people will check it out, the sequel, if it gets one, will tell if anyone actually liked it.

          • wehoaks

            A Hellraiser Remake will never do the numbers of the Halloween remake. EVER. NEVER EVER EVER.

          • Nathan Bradley

            I can’t say for sure. Adjusted for inflation the original made $32,405,900 in the US, not a lot really. It held fairly well for two more films before dropping off. Time may have made it a monster on home video, hence the reason why the Weinstein’s seem desperate to keep it. But I think I somewhat agree that it won’t make the numbers of Halloween,

          • wehoaks

            I can say for sure: A HELLRAISER REMAKE WILL NEVER EVER EVER COME CLOSE TO THE NUMBERS OF THE HALLOWEEN REMAKE.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Halloween only did 80million worldwide, not a lot in it’s self which is why I am concerned for both franchises and Friday the 13th. I am just looking to see if I can find worldwide numbers for the original Hellraiser.

            Only did $80? I hate that movie and even I admit it made a very good profit. And if it ONLY DID $80, what the hell do you think Hellraiser, a series with far viewer name brand recognition and a smaller base will do then? Christ your brain.

            Why don’t you adjust the ORIGINAL Halloween then too? $175 million DOMESTIC.

            You have no concept of logic. Christ the twists and turns you do in your own head. and again:

            THE HELLRAISER REMAKE WILL NEVER COME CLOSE TO THE NUMBERS FOR THE HALLOWEEN REMAKE.

          • Nathan Bradley

            tiny penis listen I said I somewhat agree with you but me and you both agree that it doesn’t seem to stand a chance against Halloween, so why do the Weinstein’s cling to it?

          • wehoaks

            My penis is massive.

            Oh maybe because the weinsteins are fucking idiots like you and your baby dick.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Judging by you’re name you are Scottish and have a small dick probably why you frequent the pindick thread.
            I agree with the Weinstein’s comment why else would they?

          • wehoaks

            My name is a mishmash of two random words. Are you a fucking idiot all the time or just today?

            Any of the first three, really. They’re interchangeable because they’re all sort of equally popular. Pinhead however is, you know, on a lower level because he sucks.

          • Nathan Bradley

            Chucky has just gone DTV so does that mean he now sucks? Seed did that’s for sure.

          • wehoaks

            The earth is round.

          • Nathan Bradley

            What about Leatherface? is he in with FJM or not and Chucky for that matter?

          • wehoaks

            Chucky is a little dipshit. You dipshit.

          • Gadriel

            Leatherface is the Anthrax of the slasher Big 4.

          • RidleyScott

            Yes it does. That’s what DTV usually means lol. At least Seed had a good opening seven minutes. Curse of Chucky had a 30-second zoom-in on a damn BOWL OF CHILI.

          • Creepshow

            You’ll have to excuse Nathaniel. He’s been hopped up on Mountain Dew and Slim Jims all day.

          • RidleyScott

            How is he supposed to know why they cling to that albatross? Ask them.

          • Nathan Bradley

            it would be nice to know why they do because financially it doesn’t look like there is much in Pinhead. It’s this that leads me to believe that it could make a killing on home video or rental. I would be surprised if it did though.

          • wehoaks

            You hate facts.

          • Nathan Bradley

            What facts exactly?

          • wehoaks

            All of them.

          • Nathan Bradley

            No seriously what point were you trying to make? My point is that a reboot/remake of Hellraiser could make the money at the box office, more so than Hellraiser: Judgment and other then the Weinstein’s wanting to make a reboot/remake of Hellraiser it’s the only reason this film exists. What’s stopping them from just funding the remake/reboot instead of Hellraiser: Judgment? It’s not as if Doug Bradley or even the guy who played Pinhead in Hellraiser: Revelation is coming back so what are they playing at? Unless Hellraiser: Judgment manifests itself into Hellraiser reboot/remake

          • wehoaks

            Didn’t read.

            Hellraiser only had 1,104 number of screen’s, they super saturate nearly everything these days so you can expect 3,000 plus screens.

          • wehoaks

            OH MY GOD! This fly is STILL buzzing around your head? Goddamn

            Cut to him making a small penis joke.

            I love that he has no clue you’re hung like a bull.

          • RidleyScott

            SUPER SATURATE. Umm, not for Hellraiser, no.

          • wehoaks

            Super saturate Crackle.

          • wehoaks

            Btw “making money on the first film was inevitable.” is exactly their point. Just like NOT making money on a hellraiser remake it inevitable. Get it?

          • RidleyScott

            A dog could’ve directed the Halloween remake and it would’ve been a hit. It’s a total freebie movie the way that Friday and Nightmare were. Notice the big openings, and the precipitous second weekend drops…

          • wehoaks

            I don’t think he gets what people are clearly saying.

  • Daucus Karota

    I liked Revelations better than the last 4 Hellraisers with (cameo appearances by) Doug Bradley. That being said, I’d obviously prefer to have Bradley play pinhead, but I’m not dismissing the new film because he isn’t.

    • Joseph Panarese

      I agree, I thought Revelations was a good overall horror movie and one of the better Hellraiser sequels. It just didn’t have Doug which so many people couldn’t over look. It didn’t help matters that the actor that did play Pinhead was horrible as well

      • Gadriel

        Wow – are we going to break the internet by having similar opinions that Hellraiser Revelations was far from the worst sequels?

        Get over the fact that Pinhead was played by someone different? It was closer to the original movies than Inferno afterwards…..

        It had it’s flaws – but I enjoyed it more than Deadworld!

        • CaseX

          Toss me in the “It Wasn’t That Bad” pile, as well. Yeah, it sucked not having Doug, and yeah it wasn’t great or anything, but…I could actually sit through it without retching, which is more than I could say for “Hellworld,” which apparently had Doug’s stamp of approval.

  • John Connor

    It also sounds like there may be bad blood between them. Makeup artist through most of the Hellraisers, huh? Doug must’ve started to resent him after all those hours in the makeup chair.

    When I’m in the makeup chair, though, I tend to fall in love with the one doing my makeup. It feels like a nurse caring for you. Who doesn’t want to be caressed and pampered. I feel grateful to makeup and hair, unless they try to make me look stupid. But we know Doug looked fucking awesome, so I don’t think that’s the problem.

    Who knows… a lot of history between them though. Seems silly to get in a tizzy over signing a Non-Disclosure for a film. I’d be happy to sign those. I’d go 10 steps further and offer to leak fake scripts and such as alternate personas online. But that’s me and I’m not Doug.

    • wehoaks

      Doug seems like an entitled twat here.

      PS you sound wonderful.

    • RidleyScott

      Doug is so far up his pointy ass.

    • Xmoritz

      John Connor? Beware! You are in danger. Skynet is after you.. they sent a terminator to kill you!

  • Kori Batchelor

    I like three of the Hellraiser movies (1,2,5). Was entertained by two of them (3,4). The rest were pretty awful. Is Doug Bradley the one and only Pinhead? In my mind, yes. Much like Robert Englund is the one and only Freddy Krueger. Doesn’t mean someone else can’t come along, surprise everyone, and make the role their own. I mean, Mads Mikkelson’s Hannibal Lecter was frikkin’ amazing and I now prefer him to Hopkins.
    Anyways, I hope this flick will be entertaining and I wish the best of luck to whomever takes the role of Pinhead. Gotta feeling this flick’s gonna be a pile of horse shit, though.

  • Gadriel

    It’s time to accept that Doug isn’t coming back.
    Get over it.

    🙁

  • Hero

    As I’ve said before, I believe there are other actors who can pull off Pinhead, but these loophole movies aren’t the place to find him. Of course I hope Dimension is giving this movie a decent budget, but I’m betting it will be about the same as Revelations(where they don’t even have enough money for the chaining effects) and they will not have conducted much of a search for the new Pinhead, opting to cast a replacement for Doug as quickly as possible as they are running out of time.

    • Weresmurf

      I’ve always felt Doug Jones could pull off the Pinhead role well. Just synth his voice a tiny bit and he has the gaunt, spooky look down pat…

      • Hero

        I suppose he could do it, but ideally, I think the actor should be English. And if you’re going to cast a 55 year old actor, why not 61 year old Bradley? I know he can’t do the role forever so I would be fine with a new actor, but it might as well be a relatively young one too. What would be best is if they were willing to do one last sequel to the original series, but with a good budget and proven talent attached to write and direct, if not Clive Barker himself, and bring back Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence. Then once that’s over and done with, reboot.

  • Diego Weber

    even the pinhead-like monster from Cabin in the woods is way more terrific than this pinhead from revelations.

    • sliceanddice

      so true

    • Satanzilla

      Have to admit that was my first thought as well — it looks like pinhead in a Mitchell & Webb skit.

      But to be fair, still pictures of Bradley as pinhead aren’t exactly terrifying either if you haven’t seen the first film….

  • wehoaks

    Yes

  • Randy Hodne

    What tabloid-type prattle…

  • sliceanddice

    how the flying fuck is that actor fat??

  • Adam Clifton

    Well they’ve cast Heather Langenkamp in the new one. That’s already one step up from the ‘actors’ they had in that last ‘movie’

  • Satanzilla

    Hope springs eternal and I’m not going to be one of those horror fans that starts hating on this before the first reviews are out.

    But how many times have we heard those reassurances that “the fans” won’t be disappointed…?

    • That’s actually the Robert Pattinson looking Pinhead from HELLRAISER:REVELATIONS.

  • Wes Draven

    …. I didn’t hate Revelations.

    I didn’t particularly like it. But I don’t think it was the worst of the series either.

    • Toby Townrow

      No need to run. I really enjoyed it and remain intrigued by the idea of a director’s cut.

      • CaseX

        It was better than “Hellworld.” Yeah, I said it.

    • Stoibs

      Hellworld is way worse. Revelations is bad, but it was shot in 8 days for basically nothing. Under those conditions nobody could should a full length movie that didn’t have some serious problems. I’m actually amazed that the movie makes and sense whatsoever.

  • abyx34

    Now everyone can be a pinhead!

  • M. Knepper

    I know everyone is bashing a new Hellraiser sequel, but from what I read and the communication given by writer/director of the script, I don’t think it will be any worse than what we’ve been given; the tradition of the Hellraiser sequels being successively worse than their predecessors sounds like it will be finally be broken.

    • CaseX

      Right? Everyone’s like “No Doug, so it’s gonna SUCK!” and I’m over here like, “Uhhhh…did you SEE ‘Hellworld’??”

  • MammaJuneBug

    It’s funny how they build it up. It’s going to be so scary , so bloody, so much of everything and then it flies over like a broken bottle rocket

  • Sinister1

    Ok,ok,ok…..I LOVE DOUG BRADLEY. …and HE IS PINHEAD …I am not going to hate on this movie but to say ” do we really need Pinhead ?”…..”No” . Is that a question? ?….really… I want to tear his soul apart….

  • I’m all for expanding the mythos. and as much as it pains me, Pinhead is not essential to the grand scheme of Hellraiser. I mean they killed him in the second one. Having that said, Pinhead is one of the cooler aspects to come out of the franchise and if he is to be present should be played by Doug Bradley, especially with horror icon Heather Langenkamp featured. at any rate, i wish them luck and hope to the Leviathan that they didn’t just slap Pinhead into a script and called it Hellraiser. I am beyond tired of that bullshit

  • shawn lawson

    I totally back Tunnicliffe. That statement “to the fans…” seems very sincere. I will totally give this a shot.

    • Adam Clifton

      And hopefully they find actual actors. That 2011 movie wasn’t just a bad Hellraiser movie. It was a bad movie. Period

      • DisqusRaider

        that 2011 was beyond bad!

    • DisqusRaider

      there is no one to play better then doug. he is pinhead!

  • DisqusRaider

    so they are going to pass on doug just because he wont sign some stupid bullshit contract? this is how stupid studios are! they dont give a fuck about fans its all about their egos and $$$

    i say FUCK THIS MOVIE! wont watch it! the last hellraiser was a total piece of shit and this will be too. pinhead has become the face of the franchise anything less then doug playing pinhead is going to be a complete miss!

    see also freddy.

    • AriesSiren

      Did doug give a shit about the fans when he wouldn’t sign? Nope. Only his own ego. He’s a douche. They asked him and he failed. That’s his fault not the filmmakers. Get over yourself

      • DisqusRaider

        i dont blame doug for not signing. im the same way i dont just sign a bunch of shit just because someone says so. dougs been around for a long time and if he doesnt want to sign a bullshit contract then he has that right. you can also get over yourself.

        • KennyThaKilla

          It wasn’t a bullshit contract, it was a standard NDA. Your fanboy glasses won’t let you see that.

          • DisqusRaider

            no actually he wasnt trying to send him the script. he wanted it to appear he wanted doug so fans wouldn’t be pissed and put all the blame on doug. i have some inside sources on this.

          • KennyThaKilla

            He’s your basic delusional fanboy, trolling up and down this message board, offering up all kinds of made up nonsense.

      • MarsupialRebellion

        EXACTLY. I respect his work as pinhead but he is a complete fuckass

        • AriesSiren

          Everyone I know who’s met him said the same thing

    • Khy

      It’s a simple contract to just not reveal anything about the film, it’s not like he was going to have to carry out a “hit”. The film will be filmed within a week or two and released in a matter of months- who can’t keep their big mouths shut for that long? Surely a “professional actor” could…but an asshole? Nope.

      • DisqusRaider

        well doug has been acting for quite a while now. if he thinks this is a bit odd then there is no reason to doubt him and what do these guys think is so special and earth moving about this script that they need a contract for it? i doubt its that amazing. i think this is just an excuse to skip doug who probably wanted more money then the guy who will be playing him.

        • MarsupialRebellion

          Doug is a complete douche, and NDA’S are extremely common in new projects. He’s just being a cunt as usual. I’m not disputing that the film will or won’t be a complete piece of shit but anyway

          • DisqusRaider

            he cant be anymore of a douche then the people making this movie. he clearly knew this script was going to be junk. why sign a contract like that over some garbage script?

          • KennyThaKilla

            False premise.

          • DisqusRaider

            bla bla bla

          • KennyThaKilla

            Yeah, accuracy is overrated.

          • DisqusRaider

            whats to argue? go enjoy the new shitraiser movie! you seem like the kinda person who enjoyed the 2011 release.

          • KennyThaKilla

            No, I’m the kind of person who doesn’t claim to know more than I do. You’re jumping to conclusions regarding the script and what Doug knew/didn’t know, which makes you a dumbass, as does your stale mom jokes. And FYI, the 2011 movie was crap.

          • DisqusRaider

            its called common sense! oh the thing about your mom wasnt a joke 😉

          • KennyThaKilla

  • kris

    Hmmmm trust the guy who wrote Revelations…..how about no.

  • KennyThaKilla

    Wow. Over a standard NDA? If you don’t want to play Pinhead anymore, then just say so. Better than coming up with silly excuses.

    • Josh Nitsche

      I’m guessing this film is made on a low budget, and if he were to accept a role, it would pay very little. He probably wants to hold out for the remake, so as to, keep his asking price high. Otherwise, he’d accept two low offers for Revelations and Judgment, and probably get a third low offer for the remake.

      • KennyThaKilla

        If that were the case, he could just state that. He’s Doug Freeking Bradley, he need not make silly excuses.

        • Quinn Wilx

          Well, he did state his reasons for denying to play in Revelations. Which was ’cause the script was garbage. Maybe the NDA freaked him out / made him think he’d get looped into Judgement.

          • KennyThaKilla

            Again, he could have just turned it down without throwing a hissy fit over the NDA.

    i’d be ok with a new interpretation of the lead cenobite, as in going back to the source material and coming up with a different character based on the description in the hellbound heart. like the difference between christopher lee and gary oldman playing dracula. you’re only going to see that in a reboot though, not a sequel. i don’t think i’m ok with a different pinhead. the screen character of pinhead is as much doug bradley’s creation as it is clive barker’s.
    it’s entirely possible to make a perfectly credible sequel to hellraiser by doing what the 1990s epic comics anthology series did, expanding the mythology beyond just the cenobites and the box from the original story, playing with the idea that pinhead is just this one priest in this vast order, the box is just one of the gateways to their realm, you could explore the interactions between humanity and hell throughout history.

      If Kirk and Spock can be recast basically anything can.

      • Gadriel

        True – but at least the recast versions of those characters actually resemble the originals.

    Wait I thought Clive was doing a reboot….is that not a thing now?

    • Khy

      This has nothing to do with that. This is simply being made so Dimension can keep the rights. If they go so long without releasing a new film then they lose the rights so they have to pump this out just like they did Revelations back in ’11. The Clive reboot is still their endgame I believe.

      Itis in development hell.

    I’m looking forward to the inevitable PG-13 remake…HECKRAISER!

    • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

      or a tv show that really has nothing to do with the film series oher than sharing the name and possibly introduces the possibility of penhead being able to turn back in to a normal person by falling in love. in the end there would be a half human/half cenobite that would be the link between the human and gash… and thus be connected to the devil somehow… then angels pop up and a witch with a name like grapefruit with a radio show starts sending out coded messages to aid the know united angels and human/cenobite… there is atleast one musical episode followed by a crossover episode reuniting the cast of buffy the vampire slayer that introduces vampires to mix. in the end it’s all a dream with patrick duffy passed out in the shower…. did i mention that it would be revealed that the reason why patrick duffy is passed out in the shower because he was abducted by aliens that we often call ghosts because they travel inbtween dimensions with aid of their spacesuits? they do! and the only way to stop tem is a compination of rocksalt slugs and playing lynard skynard really loud on one of those older three cd rotating cd players with the duel tape deck and shotty wireless remotes.

    I stopped watching this series. It has become a real turd.

  • Fracassi

    THE DAVIDS. I like that. I like that a lot.

    I don’t believe him. It’s a refashioned script to hold on to the rights, end of story. As sad as I am to see Pinhead not portrayed by Doug Bradley, I can’t help but feel he dodged another bullet. Get this franchise away from the Weinsteins so we can have a properly handled remake or sequel.

    “oh and of course if you want blood?… well you’ve got it!” This will be CGI no doubt. Which is always scary.

    • DisqusRaider

      if i remember right didnt doug think the 2011 script was junk? maybe thats why they want him to sign this contract. good for doug hes trying to help us fans out.

  • DisqusRaider

    just a note to everyone you cant mention hndj0bs on this site called bloody disgusting. i assume thats why my post was deleted. had no idea hardcore Christians are running bloody disgusting now.

  • Kruger

    And what happened to the remake with involvement of Barker and Bradley?????

  • Rod Maughan

    Oh. Well, I’ll watch it because I’ve stuck with this franchise over the years (for some reason) Surely it can’t be worse than Revelations…. please…

  • Gadriel

    I’d be more interested (even though I’ll still watch it, as I enjoy all the Hellraiser movies, to differing degrees – I didn’t mind that Pinhead wasn’t in some of the later ones that much, as I seem to remember he was only in the first one for something like 5 minutes total……) if they actually did something along the lines of Pinhead has gone missing, and Hell is in total disarray. Other cenobites could be searching the world for him to bring back order, as Channard and Julia have been reborn in hell and have plans for unleashing ALL of Hell on Earth, ignoring the rules of Leviathan.
    It’s time to bring back Julia as a Cenobite.

    Perhaps Pinhead has yet again rediscovered some of his last humanity – and is working with Kirsty and Tiffany to close the doors to Hell forever……

  • WALKTER

    I forgot how goofy the new Pinhead looked, jeez anything is an improvement to that mess.

  • Darnell

    Do people actually like this franchise? I mean it’s pretty horrid over all. The first movie was “ok”, and the second movie was decent. Neither of those were great films, and everything after Hellbound got progressively worst.

    I have seen better Made For TV movies than some of the Hellraiser sequels. Revelations was so bad that it took a year off my life, and made it so that I will never voluntarily see another Hellraiser film.

    They have been trying for two decades to turn Pinhead into a Freddy, Michael, or Jason type character but it’s just not going to happen. The entire franchise and the premise isn’t that interesting.

  • BrannigansLaw

    Wait… when the fuck was Bobby Moynihan Pinhead?

    • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

      drunk uncle pinhead.

  • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

    Doug Bradley should be the spokesman for dollar shave club.

  • Alicia Fsted Cuupcakez

    The last one was horrid, lets hope this one is better…
