Hellraiser: Judgement a jumping off point for a sequel says new Pinhead

In the new HELLRAISER sequel HELLRAISER: JUDGEMENT, actor Paul T. Taylor has been tasked with the job of stepping into the Cenobite shoes of the one and only Pinhead, a role made famous by the great Doug Bradley.

He recently sat down with Open the Trunk to talk about fans accepting him in the role of Pinhead, playing Pinhead again, and how being creepy is good for his career.

Taylor on fans accepting him in the role of Pinhead:

Oh yeah. I was warned from the very beginning about that. I’m not afraid of anybody. I mean, it’s just words and, you know, words can hurt, sure. If they see the film and they don’t like me as Pinhead, that’s their prerogative to spew hate, but really, every actor is different. As much as I’m going to try to do sort of an homage to Doug Bradley’s Pinhead and “Hellraiser’s” history, this is a new film and I’m a different actor. So, yeah… people are entitled to their opinions, but I’m not worried. I’m more excited about people who DO like me as Pinhead than I am worried about people who don’t like me as Pinhead.

On HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT bring back some of that "original Clive Barker flavor":

I’m hoping that this particular 10th film on the 30th anniversary year of the original “Hellraiser”… I’m hoping that it brings back some of that original Clive Barker flavor. I really think the script does. I just have a lot of hope for it.

On HELLRAISER: JUDGEMENT setting up sequels:

It’s an unexplored part of Hell, I would say, introducing some new characters and some new mechanisms behind where Pinhead and all of that comes from. And, it’s also a jumping off point for a sequel following this one that could continue the story that it tells because it’s a true “Hellraiser” script with a beginning, a middle, and a sort of ambiguous end. And these new characters they introduced could be in future “Hellraiser” films. I can’t talk about them. I’m not supposed to because that would be giving spoilers away. 

HELLRAISER: JUDGEMENT does not currently have a set release date, but as soon as we know more we will let you know!
