With some clarification on the film’s monstrous new characters…
Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive new look at your new Pinhead, played by Paul T. Taylor, as well as The Auditor in Gary Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment.
The Auditor, who is the film’s main villain, was described in the casting call as: “All business, very matter-of-fact. Clearly not of this earth. He learns of your sins, your transgressions, your evils, and takes careful note of them before passing them on to the Assessor for judgment. Think of him more as an accountant from Hell…”
Deep into post-production, we have a little bit of clarity on the heels of us sharing some new shots from the Hellraiser sequel.
The Auditor, shown below with Pinhead, is NOT a Cenobite. In fact, neither are The Butcher, Cleaners, Surgeon, or Jury.
So, who are the actual Cenobites in Judgment? Pinhead and Chatterer, obviously, as well as the Stitch Twins (who we haven’t seen yet).
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).
Personally, I can’t wait to see Pinhead back in action and am curious who the mysterious Auditor is…
