This past weekend at Mad Monster Party in Arizona saw the first-ever Pinhead Experience, which featured Doug Bradley in full Cenobite regalia on an actual cinematically lit set complete with working lament configuration! Talk about a chance for fans to live a dream… or should we say nightmare?
Whatever you want to call it, the people LOVED it! And even cooler? Fans who took part in The Pinhead Experience were given a pin plucked directly from the weekend’s make-up!
One quick look at Instagram and you can see dozens of images of the affair and lots of quotes from fans…
“I legitimately felt like I was in a Hellraiser movie!” – CJH51109 on Instagram.
“He spoke to us! The box opened! There were lights and music! The last thing he said was ‘I’ll tear your souls apart.’ I asked him if he promised! Smiles for days!” – iamsameyeam on Instagram.
“It was a full-on experience that had me in goosebumps! I was shaking and grinning!” – outback_halftrack on Instagram.
“I almost needed help picking my jaw up off of the floor! It was awe inspiring and completely surreal!” – pureevilexpressions on instagram.
“It was basically a love letter to his fans and I was so lucky to experience it!” – tonys_theme on Instagram.
Big thanks to Mad Monster Party, Doug Bradley, Steph Sciullo, Tom Savini, Steve Tolin and Kyle Roberts of Tolin FX, and Sean and Allison Boyle.
Enough talk! On with the eye candy!
