Doug Bradley Reveals Fate of Pinhead vs. Michael Myers

Pinhead Myers

We live in a world in which crossovers are all the rage. We’ve had Freddy vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator, and now Godzilla vs. King Kong is coming up! But there was once a plan for a Pinhead vs. Michael Myers film, and recently Doug Bradley sat down with YourMovieMagazine to talk about what may have been.

I was told that the year before Freddy vs. Jason was released, Dimension Films rejected two scripts for a Hellraiser-Halloween crossover, which was obviously where they would go because they owned both franchises,” said Bradley. “I was told the reason they turned it down is because they didn’t think it would work. They predicted that Freddy vs. Jason would bomb, but it opened at the top of the box office and stayed there for a second weekend – I think I’m right in saying that it was the first movie that year to do so.”

After its success, Dimension wanted a Hellraiser-Halloween movie made immediately, so it was certainly going ahead. I had a couple of phone conversations with Clive [Barker] about it and I was getting quietly excited. Clive said he would write it and I heard reports John Carpenter would direct.

But alas… it would never come to be.

The version of events I got back on this is that the Akkad brothers, who produced Halloween, retained control of the sequels and didn’t want the crossover to be made. I guess they didn’t want Michael Myers hanging around with the likes of Pinhead.

So, we have to ask… who do YOU think would have won? Sound off in the comments section below.
