So, Pinhead Was Going to Look Like This in the Hellraiser Remake
While I remain convinced that the now defunct Hellraiser remake with director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer would've been a good thing for the series (those guys are always attempting to tackle a remake differently, rather than retread familiar territory), I'm not so sure I can say the same for these Cenobite designs.
Shock Till You Drop got an exclusive look at some of the most interesting content to hit the web this week for horror fans. In it we see what make-up man Gary Tunnicliffe had come up with for the Hellraiser remake. You can check out remake Pinhead below:
Any filmmaker doing a remake obviously feels the urge to put their own stamp on the material, but the useless conic addition to Pinhead is more than a little jarring. Maybe I would've felt differently after seeing it in action, but there just doesn't seem to be any need to change the character's iconic look - remake or not.
Having said that, make sure you head on over to Shock to glimpse the other Cenobite designs. Frankly, they're worse. Not bad as far as comic book monsters go, but any notion of "sweet suffering" appears to have been lost in these designs. And that, in essence, is Hellraiser.
