Oh, man, this is just sad. Gary Tunnicliffe is one of the best FX guys in the business. If anyone’s going to take on a new Pinhead design, I’d be happy with what he could come up with, especially since he worked on the design for the last few direct-to-DVD entries. Even though his phone never rang when Dimension started planning their “>Hellraiser remake, that didn’t stop him from trying!
On your right you can see one of a slew of stills from Tunnicliffe’s re-designed Pinhead, which Fangoria got ahold of today. Not sure how I feel about it, to be honest, but with a little tweaking I think it could be truly horrifying.
Go read the feature article and watch the video over on Fangoria for Tunnicliffe’s thoughts on the project and where he’d go with it. Hopefully whomever they get to redesign Pinhead won’t stray too far from the original; the look is called “iconic” for a reason, you know.
