A quick look over at the ever unreliable IMBd shows that Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment is set for release on Tuesday, March 28th. Unfortunately, a rep at The Weinstein Company/Dimension Films tells us that there is no release date as of this writing (updated Nov. 28th; 12:04pm).
Late last night Paul T. Taylor, the latest to wear the Pinhead makeup, also posted the date as “official” on his Facebook page:
I’ve put out a few e-mails to confirm, but personally don’t think it’s legit. My gut tells me that Taylor is reacting to the IMBd date, which was discovered a few days ago. A quick look on Amazon doesn’t list the title, and neither does VideoETA, who is always ahead of the curve when it comes to home video dates. Also, I find it hard to believe that Dimension Films would drop this straight to DVD without any sort of limited window day-and-date with VOD, which would require a Thursday release. My point is that I don’t think this date is “official” and we should wait until we get some sort of solid confirmation from either the studio or Tunnicliffe.
In Hellraiser: Judgment, “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?“
Special effects artist Gary Tunnicliffe (read our lengthy interview) is now in post-production on Hellraiser: Judgment, which stars A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp, along with Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulagher, Mike Jay Regan, Diane Goldner, Andi Powers, Jeff Fenter, Helena Grace Donald, and Grace Montie (read about their roles).
