It wasn’t very long ago that we got our first look at the new Pinhead courtesy of the Hellraiser: Judgement poster. Now for the latest update, director Gary Tunnicliffe was recently interviewed by Bloody Disgusting where he revealed more about the character, and what we can expect from Paul T. Taylor in his role as the new Pinhead.
“What I can reveal is this is a very no nonsense Pinhead,” noted Tunnicliffe. “No glib one-liners, he’s a little leaner and a little meaner. We especially tried to incorporate this into the make-up and costume; the cuts are deeper, the pins a little longer, his eyes are completely black and wardrobe is a little sleeker and more visceral. Someone on set described him as the ‘bad ass’ version of Pinhead. Paul (Taylor) certainly relished the role and gave him an icy demeanor.”
“I think Pinhead has undoubtedly become the face and centerpiece of the franchise, but I think it’s foolish to let him try to carry the franchise or a movie on his own,” he continued. “To me he’s the special sauce on a great burger; too much special sauce and it makes you sick, not enough and you’re left wanting more.”
Sounds good, right? What do you fans think of that?
