Early Synopsis and Character Breakdown: Hellraiser: Revelations

Early Synopsis and Character Breakdown: Hellraiser: RevelationsThe next film in the Hellraiser franchise is moving along at a breakneck pace. So far we know that “La Femme Nikita”‘s Peta Wilson has already signed on to the cast and that Doug Bradley will not be back as Pinhead. So what are they planning to do without Doug in this new Victor Garcia helmed film written by Gary Tunnicliffe? The latest character breakdown reveals the answer to that and more!

Character Breakdowns:

[DR. ROSS CRAVEN] Early 40s, handsome, a family man. His son disappeared two years ago, and it has been a hard road back to family stability. He is a good man that has fought hard to keep his family together.

[EMMA] 18, daughter of Ross and Sarah. She is lovely and inquisitive and on the verge of her own womanhood.

[STEVEN] 20, son of Ross and Sarah. He is a seeker, a true misanthrope. After he graduated high school, he went on a backpacking trip with his friend Nico through Mexico, where he was presented with a choice to “experience a reality beyond current existence” and the puzzle box is presented and Pinhead becomes his master.

[NICO] 20, Steven’s best friend and traveling partner. Once Nico realizes that the commitment to Pinhead is FOREVER, he attempts a daring switch plan to release himself from the puzzle box.

[ENGINEER] Male with dark olive skin, cloudy eyes. He is creepy looking, a man that has lived on the streets for years. The Engineer is a man of mysterious origins, and it is this man that draws the curious souls into Pinhead’s reality.

[MALE CENOBITE] Male 20-30s, British accent, Caucasian, very pale, tall and thin, the actor should be comfortable in full body makeup along with special effects contact lenses, face and head special effect makeup. Stunt background / experience a plus.

[PSEUDO-PINHEAD] Tall and very thin, deathly pale, in his early 20s. Should be comfortable in full body makeup (head covering, etc.), and tight fitted black leather clothing. This pseudo pinhead is such a devoted servant of Pinhead, he mimics his appearance as closely as possible and revels in the pain that leads to his pleasure. Stunt background / experience a plus.

[FEMALE CENOBITE] Tall and thin, this actor should have training in contemporary dance / ballet / mime as well as be able to work within an environment of sensory deprivation (vision will be impaired within this character’s mask). The actor cannot be claustrophobic in any way as this character wears full body makeup, wears a mask that covers her entire head and face throughout the film. This character can only communicate though body language and movement. She is a haunting presence in the film and conveys all emotion through her body movement. This female cenobite is also a devoted slave to Pinhead.

So Pseudo Pinhead, eh? Color us speechless. We also got our hands on a really early plot crunch. Dig on that below and look for more on Hellraiser: Revelations soon.

Early Plotline:
PINHEAD is back and in his chamber of soulless delights. He thought he had two willing participants in STEVEN and NICO. But Nico wants out and decides that a member of Steven’s family will serve as proper barter. Terror ensues.

    It’s pretty obvious they’re phasing out Pinhead slowly and bringing in a new cenobite to take the center stage. Or at least trying to. The series was never supposed to be about Pinhead anyway.
    “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    well… since Pinhead doesn’t actually have a name (and I doubt they will actually take the time to explain that this new guy isn’t the same Pinhead), if there’s a Cenobite that looks exactly like him, it doesn’t matter whether they consider it a new character or not, that’s a recast.

    Shame Doug Bradley is no part of this film. Yet i sort of understand since this is not really a revamp or new idea for the Hellraiser mythos.
